It model Dree Hemingway (a.k.a the new face of Liu Jo) dishes on style stars, hot denim and cool Fall 2014 essentials.

Dree Hemingway hit the fashion world in 2009 like a high-style meteor, walking all the major runways and rendering all questions about her last name redundant: Yes, that Hemingway. (Ernest was her great-grandfather. #NBD) Mariel is her mother, with whom she shares all-American-girl appeal and acting ambition. This year, Hemingway stars as the titular Camille in a comedy by Whit Stillman, and next year she’ll appear alongside Naomi Watts in the comedy-drama While We’re Young. This fall, she succeeds Kate Moss as the face of Liu Jo, the Italian fashion heavyweight now enticing Canadian shoppers with its chic mix of edgy-casual separates and world-class denim. (With their shape-shifting reversed yoke and double darts, Liu Jo’s Bottom-Up jeans will change your life.) Here, Hemingway shares her fall fashion forecast.
