The outfit has been carefully designed by Doan Phuc Thien, drawing inspiration from Hue’s royal court music known as nha nhac.

Hue’s royal court music was officially recognised by UNESCO as the first Intangible Cultural Heritage of Vietnam back in 2003. Therefore, Nga’s performance whilst wearing the national costume at the global pageant is expected to promote Vietnamese culture to viewers from around the world.

Nga hails from Phu Tho province and stands at 1.74 metres tall with measurements of 89-62-92. She is currently an emcee, model, and actress.

She finished as second runner-up at Miss Globe Vietnam 2022 and is representing Vietnam at Miss Tourism International.

The international pageant was first held in 1994, with this year’s edition drawing the participation of 80 beauties from across the world. Its grand final is scheduled to take place on November 25 in Malaysia.

Vietnam has so far sent a total of 12 representatives to the pageant over the years, with Hoang Thu Thao, Thuy Linh, and Giao Linh winning the Best National Costume award in 2016, 2017, and 2018, respectively. In addition, Hoang Thu Thao also finished among the top 10 in the 2016 contest.

Most notably, 2021 saw Hoang Huong Ly named among the Top 5 of the competition, whilst also won the Miss Tourism Metropolitan International title.
