Notes[edit]

  • In early 2009, Nguyễn Thùy Lâm became the first Miss Vietnam Universe placed in Globalbeauties.com Top 100 Miss Grandslam.
  • In 2010, Miss Vietnam Photogenic 2005 - Phạm Thị Thanh Hằng, who competed in Miss Intercontinental 2005, was invited to participate in Miss Universe 2010. She declined due to lack of preparation time and Vietnam subsequently withdrew from the 2010 pageant.[3]
