Claudia Kim Is The First Korean Actress To Attend Annual Women In Film Gala
Claudia Kim (also known as Kim Soo Hyun in Korea) is the first Korean actress to attend the red carpet event for the annual Women in Film gala.
The Women in Film gala takes place every year to support the organization of the same name, which was created in 1973 to advocate for women and gender equality in the entertainment industry. The 2019 gala took place on June 12 at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles.
Claudia Kim was photographed on the red carpet in a Max Mara tuxedo jumpsuit alongside Maria Giulia Maramotti (retail director for the U.S. branch of Max Mara and the granddaughter of the label’s founder) and American actress and model Jaime King.
Italian fashion house Max Mara has been an official sponsor of the Women in Film gala for 17 years and presents one of the awards at the gala, the MaxMara Face of the Future Award. In the 2019 ceremony, this award was won by Australian actress Elizabeth Debicki.
Claudia Kim was born in Seoul but spent six years of her childhood in the United States before returning to South Korea. She also studied abroad and is fluent in English, which led to her being cast in Hollywood films such as “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.”
