While excitement is swirling around Emmanuelle Riva being the oldest Academy Award nominee, Quvenhane Willis is the youngest, honored for her role as Hushpuppy in the movie, Beasts of the Southern Wild. Willis favors wearing short, printed dresses if you study the pattern of styles that she’s stepped on the red carpet wearing for past events. (Not to mention her beyond adorable interview with Andre Leon Talley, where she admitted being afraid to step on her train.) The length is totally age appropriate, especially if you count the fact that she is usually carrying a little animal in the form of a handbag. So cute.
Her stylist, David Meister, said that the 9-year-old likes “Pink, purple and bling!” For the Oscars, we think that Wallis would look adorable in a piece from Oscar de la Renta Spring 2013 children’s line, a David Charles bow shift dress or Un Deux Trois sequin party dress. What do you think she would look best in on the red carpet?
