Miss Vietnam (Vietnamese: Hoa hậu Việt Nam) is a beauty contest in Vietnam that has been held biennially since 1988. This contest was initiated and organized by Tien Phong newspaper. The current Miss Vietnam is Đỗ Mỹ Linh, from Hanoi.

History[edit]

Miss Vietnam is the biggest beauty pageant and the first nationwide beauty contest after the unification of Vietnam. The contest was initiated and organized by Tien Phong newspaper, called "Miss Tien Phong Newspaper", starting from 1988 and is held every two years. The first person to hold the title is Bùi Bích Phương. The contest was officially renamed as "Miss Vietnam" in 2002.

While Tien Phong did not hold franchise licenses to send representatives to international beauty pageants, from 2002 to 2006, Miss Vietnam winners represented Vietnam at Miss World. In 2008, due to her incomplete high school education, Trần Thị Thùy Dung was not sent to Miss World 2008. Since then, no Miss Vietnam titleholders have participated in the international pageant. However, Miss Vietnam 2010 first runner up Vũ Hoàng My was appointed to represent Vietnam at both Miss Universe 2011 in São Paulo, Brazil and Miss World 2012 in Ordos, China.

From 2014, Sen Vang Productions became involved in the production of Miss Vietnam along with Tien Phong Newspaper. In 2017, they partnered with Elite Vietnam to secure licenses to send Miss Vietnam winners to various international pageants, including Miss World and Miss International, in even years.[1] Đỗ Mỹ Linh was then selected to compete at Miss World 2017. She was the first titleholder since Mai Phương Thúy in 2006 to represent Vietnam at the competition. Additionally, Miss Vietnam World winners will compete at Miss World in odd years while the previous Vietnamese preliminary for Miss World (Miss Ao Dai) will go on a hiatus.[1]

Notes[edit]

  • All 3 Misses Vietnam in 2002, 2004 and 2006 arrived late at Miss World since the Miss Vietnam contest was held too close to Miss World.
  • Phạm Thị Mai Phương is the first Miss Vietnam to get into the semifinal round at Miss World.
