Dree Hemingway talks make up and fragrance
Isn't Dree Hemingway gorgeous? The model has been the face of Paco Rabanne's Lady MILLION fragrance since it was released two years ago, and is back again for the launch of the Eau de Toilette version.
Dree stars in the Lady Million ads with the beautiful Matt Gordon (who's been the face of the male 1 MILLION fragrance since 2008) in probably one of my favourite fragrance adverts (hey, I like ads okay? Nicole Kidman's Chanel No5 commercial is probably my all time favourite), probably because it's nice to see a woman being in control, but also because I wish I could click my fingers and have things appear...
Dree, who is an actress as well as a model, talked about why she came back for more Lady MILLION. "I like her determination, her intrepid and go-getting side," she said. "And her sense of humour. She is incredibly glamorous and free, extravagant and stylish... It's a real thrill to play her, she gives me amazing energy!"
Her favourite thing about playing Lady MILLION though is actually Matt - understandably. He'd be my favourite too. "[I love] teasing my partner Matt Gordon, making him disappear and reappear with a mere snap of my fingers as I wish," she joked. "We get on really well and we love this game of cat and mouse or - I should rather say - of dog and mouse..."
The bottle for the new Lady MILLION EDT just like the Parfum, is totally in line with the feeling of luxury that the perfume emits (it was inspired by the Regent diamond once used as a hat ornament by Marie Antoinette but now on display in the Louvre museum in Paris). "The diamond is a symbol," explains Dree. "It is not only sublimely beautiful, but is also a token of love... And a song by Marilyn! For all these reasons, the Lady MILLION bottle is more than a mere bottle, it is an object of desire that is exhibited like a precious object, or even displayed like a jewel."
The model also revealed a love for make up (something she gets to indulge quite a lot through her day job) "I never go out without make-up, even if it's only a lick of mascara, and I always wear perfume... a light or more intense version. But I'm never without that extra seductive touch," she confessed. Bree added, "A fragrance that matches the personality of the man or woman who wears it is an integral part of the memory that you have of him or her. Yes, it goes without saying that it's a formidable weapon of seduction!"
