First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy hosts a tea party for wives of new ambassadors.  The guests stand in front of the grand staircase in the Entrance Hall of the White House. 
Guests include: Neila Zouiten Bourguiba (wife of Ambassador Habib Bourguiba, Jr. of Tunisia); Mrs. Frédéric Guirma of Upper Volta; Mrs. Sergio Fenoaltea of Italy (first name unknown); Helena Drozniak (wife of Ambassador Edward Drozniak of Poland); Mrs. Michel Gallin-Douathe of Central African Republic; Seelawathie Rambukwella Gopallawa (wife of Ambassador William Gopallawa of Ceylon); Mrs. Matrika Prasad Koirala of Nepal; Nepalese interpreter Bhinda Malla; Mrs. Il Kwon Chung of South Korea; Mrs. Emmanuel Datnongo Dadet of Congo; Virginia Rusk (wife of Secretary of State Dean Rusk); Mrs. Ousmane Diop of Senegal; Mrs. Seydou Conte of Guinea.

Though it was the convention of the time, I really hate it when women are listed as Mrs. Husband’s First and Last Name.  A quick google search suggests Mrs. Il Kwon Chung may be Park Hye Soo as that is the name given for his wife in this 1994 obit (although it may be a later marriage).
