Thuy shared that the outfit was designed by Nguyen Viet Hung, taking inspiration from the Nghe, a mythical creature in Vietnamese traditional culture.

The dress features a 3D image of Nghe on the shoulder, which is a distinctive highlight.

The costume is also accessorized with a scepter showcasing the head of the Nghe and a headdress with stylized phoenix and sun motifs. It is expected that this unique outfit will contribute to Thuy’s success in the competition.

Doan Thu Thuy is 28 years old and comes from Phu Tho province in northern Vietnam. She was crowned as Miss Fitness Vietnam 2022 during the grand final held in Ho Chi Minh City last year.

Standing at 1.73 meters tall and weighing 56kg with body measurements of 85-62-95, Thuy is currently working as a model and fitness coach.

The Miss Global pageant was first organized in 2013 and is known for its wide age range, allowing contestants between 18 and 35 years old.

This year marks the 10th edition of the beauty contest, attracting the participation of 80 contestants from around the world. The grand final will take place on January 18 in Cambodia.

In the previous Miss Global 2019, Vietnamese representative Nguyen Thi My Duyen made it to the Top 11. However, local beauty Doan Thi Hong Trang did not win any prizes in last year’s pageant.
