Quvenzhané Wallis can now add "Armani model" to her ever-growing resume.

An image from Quvenzhané's upcoming ads, set to launch globally next month, were revealed Thursday, May 22. In the shot, she is decked out in a black satin suit, white blouse and patent leather flats, looking nothing short of fabulous.

"Quvenzhané is so talented, despite her young age," Giorgio Armani says in a press release. "Her kindness, curiosity and openness towards others really struck me, as they are all traits I admire. It is for this very reason that I wanted her to be the face of Armani Junior. With her insatiable energy, Quvenzhané made the clothing come alive, interpreting it in her own singular way."

Quvenzhané, who famously wore Armani to the 2013 Oscars when she was nominated for best actress, was excited to have been chosen for the spot.

"I'm so happy to be chosen by Mr. Armani to be his ambassador for Armani Junior. I felt the same excitement when I got cast for a major film. Me? Wow!" she says in the release. Adding: "It's fun to wear Armani Junior since I really like the clothes. It's young. It's cool. My friends are going to want to borrow all my clothes."
