We’re dreamy about Dree!

Dree Hemingway

Dree Hemingway is the model of the moment. The daughter of actress Mariel Hemingway and great-granddaughter of literary legend Ernest Hemingway, she is currently the face of Mango’s autumn/winter 2010 ad campaign, alongside Scarlett Johansson. We caught up with the lady herself in Barcelona for the label’s spring 2010 catwalk show, and grilled her for the lowdown on her style…

Her latest purchase…
'The Isabel Marant over-the-knee black boots from the ready-to-wear show…' [they flew off the shelves – we tell her she was very lucky to have tracked them down] 'and the black and grey tweed jacket from the same collection. I love Isabel’s stuff because it’s effortless and I can just throw it on.'

Her top style tips…
'Mess it up, I like things to look undone… Shop for menswear; I love the long arms and slouchy look you get with men’s cuts.'

Her favourite style icon…
'The Hepburns [Katharine and Audrey]. I take their preppiness – ballet pumps, skinny pants – and rock it up.'

On singing or acting as a future career…
'I would love to act! That's the next path. As for music, I would love to be involved in some way, although maybe not singing...'

Her favourite music...
'I love a bit of folk and rock. I listen to anything from the Beatles to Jethro Tull, to Jesus Christ Superstar. And I love, love, love Gloria Estefan. When I was little I met her, and thought "This is it!"'

She’s currently working on...
'I've just done V magazine; it’s out now… tomorrow I’m shooting the new Valentino campaign, and I did the Ferre campaign in New York a couple of weeks ago.'

Her favourite show she modelled in this season…
'I loved doing the Chanel show most, I thinks he's a genius the way he used clothes that would work anywhere and then put them in a barn! I like the theatre of his shows.'

Her favourite designer…
'[Calvin Klein’s] Francisco Costa, he’s the nicest person I’ve ever met. His clothes are so beautiful.'

Her style is influenced by...
'Whoever I work with. I did the Giles show and loved all the fluoro bits. That might be my next look…'

Favourite stores…
'In the UK: Brick Lane; in Paris: April77, Les Eclairs; in New York: Kirna Zabete.'

And given the choice from the whole Mango collection, what did Dree choose to wear? An oh-so-classic black blazer, ballet pumps, and vest, but the coolest stone-wash denim jeans with leather inserts – HOT biker style. Oh, and worn with a Louis Vuitton hot pink and purple leopard mega scarf.

This girl exudes coolness! Not fair…

Check back on Graziadaily tomorrow for pictures of Dree and fellow Mango model Scarlett Johansson from tonight’s fashion show.
