Dressed to the Nines: An Oscar Worthy Dress For Quvenzhane Wallis

By  January 15, 2013

“Beasts of the Southern Wild” star, Quvenzhane Wallis, needs a dress, and not just any dress. The adorable 9 year old is in need of a frock fit for the red carpet and appropriate for an Oscar nominee like herself, preferably in pink, and in a short silhouette so she doesn’t trip over the hem and humiliate herself. At least that’s what she told Andre Leon Talley in an interview for Vogue.com. Glam got to work rounding up their picks for the young star and were surprised to find the extent of fashionable dresses for little girls. Our favorites include the radiant rosette dress that reminded us of the fiery gowns Zooey Deschanel and Jennifer Lawrence rocked at the Golden Globes, the long sleeved lace look, a kid friendly version of Eva Longoria’s red carpet ensemble, and the dazzling fuchsia frock by J.Crew with a fun yet sophisticated structured ruffled skirt. Can we get them in our sizes?
