22-year-old Lưu Thị Diễm Hương, Miss World Việt Nam 2010, is in Las Vegas to represent Việt Nam at this year’s Miss Universe contest.
At the national costume round to take place on December 14, the 1.74-meter beauty will wear an ao dai designed by Thuần Việt.
The dress is made from natural silk and decorated with brocade patterns.
In 2010, Diễm Hương represented Việt Nam at the Miss Earth competition held in Nha Trang and won the Best in Swimwear contest and entered the Top 14 at the contest.
One year later, in February, she was voted by Global Beauties online magazine as one of the three most beautiful Asian women.
Founded in 1952 in California, Miss Universe is an annual international beauty contest that is run by the Miss Universe Organization.
