Miss Vietnam (Vietnamese: Hoa hậu Việt Nam) is a beauty contest in Vietnam that has been held annually since 1988. This contest was initiated and organized by Tien Phong newspaper and Sen Vàng Productions.

The current Miss Vietnam titleholder is Trần Tiểu Vy from Quảng Nam province, who was crowned on September 16, 2018 in Ho Chi Minh City.


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 Vàng 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.[1] Under this partnership, Miss Vietnam titleholder will participate in Miss World. The first and second runner-ups, depending on which beauty pageant they are more suitable for, will be selected for either Miss Grand International or Miss International.[2] At Miss World 2017, Đỗ Mỹ Linh became the first Miss Vietnam titleholder since Mai Phương Thúy in 2006 to represent the country at the pageant. In 2018, the 2nd runner-up that year Nguyễn Thị Thúy An was initially appointed to participate in Miss International 2018 but she withdrew due to health issues. The contestant with the next highest score in the top 5 Nguyễn Thúc Thùy Tiên assumed Thúy An's spot at the competition.[3]
