I didn’t even recognize that was Quvenzhané Wallis at first! She’s grown up so much since “Beasts Of The Southern Wild”; she was practically a baby then. But now, in addition to “12 Years A Slave” and the “Annie” remake, the 10-year-old actress is the first-ever face of Armani Junior. Here she is modeling both menswear and puppywear.

The Onion has posted a sincere, to-the-point apology for their tweet about Quvenzhane Wallis posted during last night’s Oscars. Props to them for owning up to it and not only apologizing but also explaining why it was wrong. Full text below and after the jump:
