Dree Hemingway would like to be a “Wes Anderson character.” In her acting career, at least, she’s getting pretty close: Next month, the Iowa native’s latest film, L.A. Times, will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, and she has several other films wrapped and awaiting release including The People Garden with François Arnaud, 7×7 with James Jagger, and Live Cargo with Keith Stanfield. Hemingway is still modeling, too, with recent campaigns including Miu Miu’s Resort 2017 advertisement photographed by Alisdair McLellan and Tiffany & Co.’s Fall/Winter 2016 campaign by Peter Lindbergh.
