Hippie girl meets French chic.
On the red carpet, you are more likely to spot Dree Hemingway in a grey sweater meets cocktail dress combo than a slinky evening gown. With her irresistibly laid-back looks, the 27-year-old talent has perfected the blend of dreamy hippie, all-American girl and Parisian chic. Back in the days, during her childhood in the Rocky Mountains of Idaho, the great-granddaughter of author Ernest Hemingway had down-to-earth dreams: She loved to stage musicals for her dogs or sell lemonade at her roadside stand.
When she later moved to Los Angeles to attend acting school, the teenager found herself confronted with a world that, in a way, should have been second nature to the daughter of actress Mariel Hemingway and niece of famous seventies super model Margaux. In 2009, Dree decided to make Paris her home – and discovered what might be her most formative city. “Paris is my Mecca. This is where I honed my sense of fashion.”
