Feb. 24 (UPI) --
Nine-year-old star Quvenzhane Wallis may be the Academy's youngest ever nominee, but that won't stop her from making a fashion statement. Walking the Oscars red carpet Sunday night, the young and talented "Beasts of the Southern Wild" star accessorized her beautiful midnight blue Armani dress with one of her signature puppy purses.
Wallis, who has a collection of purses shaped like puppies, has been wearing them on the red carpet for the entirety of awards season. Check out some of her looks below.
