Dree Hemingway made a brief appearance at the opening of a Marc O’Polo store in Beijing on Wednesday. Many in the crowd outside seemed clueless about the identity of the great granddaughter of famed author Ernest Hemingway. Throughout the ribbon cutting ceremony, Hemingway played second fiddle to Brunei-Chinese actor and singer, Wu Chun.
This is the starlet’s first visit to China.
“[Chinese] people are very sweet, very nice. Hopefully I can get in a little bit of the culture before I leave [Thursday],” said the model and actress, who just finished filming for Canadian indie film “The People Garden” and will star in upcoming campaigns for Chloe fragrance and Marc O’Polo.
For dinner, Hemingway dined at chic Peking duck restaurant Duck de Chine before jetting off to Poland Thursday morning to shoot a Mercedes-Benz campaign.
