It doesn’t hurt to have friends in high places—or, in designer Chase Cohl’s case, model pals ready and willing to show off your wares. The beautiful mind behind L.A.’s Littledoe, an accessories line that harks back to the hippie headpieces of yesteryear, Cohl hosted a party to fête her new bridal range in New York last night, where catwalking star and friend Dree Hemingway was on hand to do some pro bono work. That beaded feather number is enough to make you want to frolic barefoot in a field, no?
When we got backstage at Matthew Williamson last night, we arrived at the Tate Modern just as Dree Hemingway did. We came via cab; she came via plane. “I just flew in for Matthew,” Hemingway said fresh off a flight from New York, where she’s been double-timing her fashion career with another medium: film. “I just started production on a new movie in New York. It’s two French directors and it’s called Nous York.” It’s the second feature Hemingway, who studied acting after college, has been cast for in the past year; the first, Sean Baker’s Starlet, wrapped in August. “I play Jane, who comes from Florida to L.A. and ends up in the porn industry,” Hemingway says of what will be her second lead, but the first that she thinks will “go somewhere.” Despite her pursuit of the silver screen, Hemingway hasn’t given up on the rag trade. “I don’t want to quit modeling because I love it. I’m actually flying to L.A. right after this for a fashion shoot.” So that’s two trips across the Atlantic, in 72 hours. What does the petite blonde keep with her to ensure that she stays hydrated and fresh-faced, no matter the altitude? Here, she opens up her black suede Loewe bag (“Stuart [Vevers] gave it to me,” she told us) and gives us a peek inside.

You’ve likely already read about this week’s launch party for Salvatore Ferragamo’s latest fragrance, Attimo—a perfume that, according to its press release, is meant to represent “the essence of life’s most precious instants.” Models Irina Lazareanu, Agyness Deyn, and Lindsay Ellingson; photographer Craig McDean; jewelry designer Gaia Repossi; and Greek shipping heir Stavros Niarchos all turned out to fête the instant of the fragrance’s coming-out party on Wednesday night—as did one Dree Hemingway, who stars in its print (and video) campaign, cradling a bottle of the light gold eau in her palm while wearing nothing more that a pale pink nightie with unfastened red satin Ferragamo stilettos. For those of you who had the pleasure of actually making it up to Le Bain’s rooftop soirée, something else, aside from the glitterati, may have caught your eye—or nose, as it were. Described by Firmenich noses Jean-Pierre Bethouart and Annick Menardo as a “floral green woody,” notes of nashi pear and lotus flower hit you first. A floral center of gardenia and frangiapani blossoms then begins to take shape, until the scent fully evolves on your skin with a warm dry-down of powdery musks and patchouli. If you couldn’t get past the list-holders at the Standard, you can still have the Attimo experience. Get ready to celebrate your own precious instants when the flacon hits counters at Bloomingdale’s on July 23.
The pink lip, the blond hair, those dark roots? That thick, kicked-out black cat-eye with filled-in brows? Call us crazy, but we can’t help but see a little bit of Edie Sedgwick in Dree Hemingway’s editorial for the July issue of Vogue China. Sure, that gigantic David Yurman cocktail ring and Ellen von Unwerth’s overexposed film help conjure images of Warhol’s pretty little rich girl, but the resemblance is hard to ignore, no?
Last night’s CFDA Awards ceremony boasted its fair share of models, but Jessica Stam still managed to stand head and shoulders above her long-legged counterparts with a knockout beauty look. First there was her side braid, which we much preferred to Doutzen’s voluminous updo, Sasha’s low-slung chignon, and Dree’s trying-too-hard headband. Then there were her spectacular brows, which Stam appears not only to have left unplucked but also to have covered in shadow for a subtle, super-thick shape. Put them together, and she’s basically unstoppable. What do you think of the catwalker’s off-runway transformation?
