Miss Universe Vietnam 2017 H’Hen Niê wore her terno-inspired dress during an event that announced her being chosen as the ambassador of this year’s Ao Dai Festival in Ho Chi Minh City.
The ao dai is the Vietnamese national garment, which consists of a tight silk tunic worn over loose trousers. The 2019 ao dai festival is set to be held in Ho Chi Minh City from March 2 to 17.
During a press conference yesterday, Feb. 26, to promote the upcoming festival, Niê wore a white ao dai designed with terno sleeves by designer Song Toan for the brand Kinzu. The beauty queen first wore the creation in a Naga youth event last Feb. 2.
Niê posed with the pristine white ao dai and her crown yesterday, as seen in pictures on her Instagram account. She wrote, “This is the second time I wore this special costume, the combination between Vietnamese and Philippines culture, in a special occasion Ao dai Festival 2019.”
