Miss Universe Vietnam (Vietnamese: Hoa hậu Hoàn vũ Việt Nam) is a national beauty pageant in Vietnam to select the country's representative to the Miss Universe, one of the Big Four major international beauty pageants. This pageant is unrelated to Miss Vietnam or Miss Vietnam World or Miss Ao Dai Vietnam pageants.


Dương Trương Thiên Lý - 2nd runner-up Miss Universe Vietnam 2008 - Miss People's Choice Miss World 2008
  • The 2008 Miss Universe Vietnam was held at the Vinpearl Land resort in Nha Trang on May 31, 2008. It was the first official Miss Universe Vietnam contest[1]. Miss Vietnam Universe took place at Diamond Bay, Nha Trang, with 20 contestants participating. The final included four competitions: evening gown, swimsuit, áo dài, and interview. This was the first edition of Miss Universe Vietnam.

- The winner, Nguyễn Thùy Lâm, was host delegate for the Miss Universe 2008 pageant held July 14, 2008, also in Nha Trang. She made the Top 15.

  • The selection of Miss Universe Vietnam 2017 is accompanied by a reality television series called I Am Miss Universe Vietnam, in which contestants are put through different challenges and training programs in each weekly episode. Initially, the contest finale was scheduled to be held in August 2017. However, it was subsequently pushed back to December 2, 2017.[3] The final was once again pushed back to January 6, 2018 amidst ongoing recovery efforts in Nha Trang - the host city - after Typhoon Damrey hit the region in early November.[4]

- 70 contestants were selected for the 2017 pageant and 63 of them took part in the preliminary competition. Top 45 finalists were then chosen for the final round. Phạm Hương crowned her successor H'Hen Niê at the end of the event. Being an E-de, H'Hen was the first Miss Universe Vietnam to be of a minor ethnicity.
