Dree Louise Crisman Hemingway (born December 4, 1987) is an American fashion model and actress. A member of the Hemingway family, she rose to prominence after playing the lead in American director Sean Baker's feature Starlet (2012). She has since become known for her high-profile fashion campaigns and her extensive work in independent film.

Early life and education[edit]

Dree Louise Crisman Hemingway was born in Sun Valley, Idaho. She is the daughter of actress Mariel Hemingway and Stephen Crisman as well as the niece of the late model and actress Margaux Hemingway. Author Ernest Hemingway is her great-grandfather on her mother's side. She has a younger sister named Langley Fox Crisman Hemingway (known as Langley Fox).

She grew up in Ketchum, Idaho and attended Ernest Hemingway Elementary School. She later moved to California and lived in Westlake Village. She attended Oaks Christian High School for two and a half years and then dropped out to pursue her modelling career.[citation needed] She was presented as a debutante at the Bal des débutantes in Paris, France in 2003.[3]

Modeling career[edit]

Hemingway has represented major companies in print advertising as well as in fashion shows.

In March 2009, she debuted at the fall/winter 09–10 catwalk show for Givenchy in Paris.[4] In June 2009, she walked in the Calvin Klein resort show in New York. In September 2009, she opened the Topshop spring/summer 2010 show in London.[5]

In January 2010, she became the new face of the Gianfranco Ferré advertising campaign.[6] Later that year, she fronted a new advertising campaign for the Salvatore Ferragamo perfume Attimo.[7]

She was photographed by Bryan Adams for the spring 2011 issue of Zoo Magazine.

Hemingway has also walked for Shiatzy Chen, House of Holland, Karl Lagerfeld, Giles, Chanel, and Rue du Mail shows. She has also done campaigns for Gucci, Jean Paul Gaultier, Valentino, H&M, Chanel, Paco Rabanne, and A.Y. Not Dead. She has also done editorials for Harper's Bazaar, i-D, V, W, Numéro, and multiple national editions of Vogue.[8]

In January 2014, Hemingway was the first significant Instagram plug for a crochet bikini created in Brazil but claimed by a Turkish entrepreneur and branded as a "kiini". [9]

Hemingway is the Playboy Playmate in the March 2016 issue of Playboy, making her a second-generation Playboy model.

In 2018, Hemingway appeared in public and on Instagram having removed most of her hair in a buzz cut. She said the experience helped her find her femininity.[10]

Acting career[edit]

Hemingway followed in her mother and aunt's footsteps by launching her acting career. She has appeared predominantly in independent films. Her first lead role was in the independent film Starlet (2012), directed by Sean Baker. She, along with the rest of the cast, was awarded the Robert Altman Award for the film at the 2012 Independent Spirit Awards. She has since had supporting roles in films such as Listen Up Philip (2014) and While We're Young (2014)[citation needed] and leading roles in The People Garden and Live Cargo, the latter of which premiered at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival.

In 2017, Hemingway appeared in Michelle Morgan's It Happened in L.A., which premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival,[11] as well as Russell Harbaugh's Love After Love, which premiered at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival.[12]
