Dree Hemingway is anything but a dumb blonde, nor is she your standard spokeswoman schilling perfume with a permanent smize. While the model and actress is currently the face of Chloé’s ultra-feminine Fleur De Parfum (a floral blend laced with delicate notes of rose, verbena flower, cherry blossom, and almond), she’s not all sugar and no spice. Like Clare Waight Keller’s latest collection for the French house, this willowy creature with her long, golden hair has depth underneath her pretty pleats and carefree ruffles—and she isn’t afraid to let it all hang out. “I would have been happy for my boobs to be out,” said Hemingway of her non-nude Playboy shoot. “We have some photos that are like that, which obviously weren’t run, but I’m not afraid of a boob out ever. Why not? It’s beautiful.”
Sure, she didn’t exactly set the nipple free in her spread for the racy-turned-refined magazine (much to the chagrin of many readers who were “livid” and threated to cancel their subscriptions after her issue came out), but Hemingway gives precisely zero fucks about the male gaze. “I really do things for women more so than men,” she explained. Fashion seemed to make a similar statement for Spring 2017—with the HBICs at Chloé, Dior, and Lanvin, among others, sending garments and flats (!!!) down the catwalk with strong women in mind. Here, Hemingway weighs in on everything from posing nude to plastic surgery to Pamela Anderson, whom she stars alongside in Canadian thriller The People Garden.
