Chanel Model Sung Hee Kim Bucks Korean Surgery Trend

Sung Hee Kim is an international model hailing from South Korea. Her versatility and natural beauty have won her a number of high profile campaigns.

At a statuesque 5’10, 26 year old Sunghee – as she’s sometimes known in the Anglophone world – is hot property in the fashion world. She has just come back from walking the F/W 2015 catwalk for Kenzo, Hermes and Just Cavalli among other big names, which came after a successful stint modelling pieces from Chanel’s A/W 2014 collection in Chinese Vogue.

Sung Hee Kim is also something of an off duty style icon. She often blends traditional Eastern accessories with boldly patterned dresses and skirts, advocating an edgy, non-conformist style. Having spent a lot of time living in NYC as well as Asia, it’s understandable that her style represents the hybrid of different cultures that she’s encountered throughout her modelling career.

Sung Hee Kim is also notable for her unique and natural Korean features, which remain untouched by the surgeon’s knife. Unlike the cosmetics and commercial modelling industries, the world of high fashion is not known for championing a very prescriptive idea of facial beauty; models with unique and inquisitive features are often chosen over ‘pretty’ girls, who are better suited to catalogue modelling.
