Uma Thurman showed off her chic sense of style as she made an appearance at the New York International Children’s Film Festival Benefit in NYC on Thursday. 

The Pulp Fiction actress, 53 – who is mother to Stranger Things star Maya Hawke – was also the honoree during the special event which was held at the Scandinavia House. 

The star – who has been a longtime NYICFF juror – dressed to impress in a black skirt that fell down straight to stop a few inches above her ankles. 

She added a fitted, matching blazer on top that was fastened at the front and for a pop of color, also opted for a red scarf that was tied into a loose knot. 

Thurman slipped into a pair of closed-toed, black pumps to complete her overall ensemble for the evening.

Her blonde locks were parted to side, and effortlessly flowed down to brush past her shoulders in light waves. 

Uma opted for minimal accessories, and wore a pair of small, flashy earrings as well as a red bracelet on her left wrist. 

The star’s makeup was classically done, and comprised of a layer of mascara to her lashes as well as a gold, shimmering shadow around her eyes. 

A light blush was added to her cheekbones for a radiant glow, while a bold, red tint was worn on her lips. 

The Kill Bill actress was spotted striking a few poses upon arriving to the venue, and later in the night, took to the stage to give a speech after being honored during the benefit. 

The event helped support the ‘FilmEd Field Trip program with food, drinks, an auction, and short films’ while honoring ‘actress, advocate, and longtime NYICFF juror, Uma Thurman,’ per the festival’s website.  

The Oscar-nominated actress is mother to actress Maya Hawke, 25, and actor Levon Hawke, 22 – whom she shares with ex Ethan Hawke. The pair were married from 1998 through 1995. 

She was also married to Gary Oldman from 1990-1992, and Uma also shares another daughter Luna, 11, with ex Arpad Busson.

Last year in October, Thurman opened up to People about her relationship with Maya at the Room to Grow 25th Anniversary Gala. 

‘What isn’t a mother-daughter bond? Good communication. That is a big challenge, to make sure we keep communication healthy, strong, and open with your family,’ she expressed to the outlet. 

Maya has followed in her mother’s acting footsteps, and has appeared in projects such as Stranger Things, Do Revenge and Maestro. 

While talking to Access earlier last year, the Dangerous Liaisons star discussed her eldest child stepping into the ‘public arena’ in the entertainment industry. 

‘It’s a complicated career,’ Uma explained, later adding that her daughter is ‘a sensitive person.’ 

‘Any protective parent would be anxious for their child to go into the public arena, not because they want to be in the public arena, but because they’re so creative. You just wish they’d find any other way to be creative.’ 

However, Thurman recognizes Maya’s talent, stating, ‘She’s, in the end, such a brilliant actress. Obviously, there’s nothing else that she would have ever done. Her talent was so big. It’s what she had to do.’ 

Her son, Levon, is also an actor and most recently, he took on a role in the series titled, The Crowded Room (2023) – which also starred Tom Holland and Amanda Seyfried.
