Quvanzhene Wallis and Her Natural ‘Fro Grace ESSENCE’s December Issue


2014 is turning to be the year for natural hair all across the board. From movies and TV to printed covers, it’s a good time to embrace your tresses. ESSENCE is following the trend with stars Jamie Foxx and Quvenzhané Wallis for their “Gifted & Grateful” December issue.

Killing us with cuteness, Wallis dons her natural tresses that she’s been known for since her Hollywood debut, Beasts of the Southern Wild.” When talking about the remake of the 1984 original classic Annie, Jamie speaks highly of his 9-year-old co-star.

“I don’t think we could have done this movie unless Quvenzhané came along. It’s sort of like she’s tailor-made for the role in a sense,” Foxx tells the writer. “I would challenge you to find a girl who personifies ‘Annie’ better than Quvenzhané does.”

ESSENCE’s December issue will hit newsstands Friday, November 7.
