Võ Hoàng Yến (born October 29, 1988) is a Vietnamese beauty pageant contestant and occasional actress. She won the Vietnam Supermodel 2008 contest and is the 1st runner-up of Miss Universe Vietnam 2008. She represented Vietnam in the Miss Universe 2009 pageant in the Bahamas.[1]

Miss Universe Vietnam 2008[edit]

The winner: Nguyễn Thùy Lâm (Thái Bình), competed in Miss Universe 2008 and was one of the 15 semi-finalists.

Miss Universe 2009[edit]

A controversy made headlines when the Ministry of Culture passed a regulation that allowed only one national pageant to be held in one year. This year, 2009, the license was given to the Mrs. Vietnam contest.

The Hoan Vu company, which organized the 2008 Miss Universe contest in Nha Trang, picked Hoàng Yến, who had been the 1st runner-up, to compete at Miss Universe 2009 in the Bahamas. In final night on August 23, 2009 she missed the first cut. No contestant competing from Asia made the first cut in Miss Universe 2009 and the first time since Miss Universe 1991.
