The episode will be aired on August 4.

The dress is from Phong’s “I am Superstar” collection. The short V-cut strapless dress compliments Paris’s bare shoulders and curves. Its sequins make the model stand out.

“I’m very eager to see her wearing my design,” designer Chung Thanh Phong told VNE. “I’m very happy the beauty’s stylist came and asked me for some sexy dresses. Vietnamese fashion has been gaining more recognition from international stars.”

Phong reportedly tailor-made five dresses and sent them to Paris in February without knowing which outfit would be selected. “They only let me know when the show was almost on air. That’s how the international fashion industry work,” Phong said.

Last year, the designer unveiled a Save Yourself collection featuring protective outfits and face masks. With the Covid-themed outfits, he said he wanted to encourage fashion lovers to adopt protective measures to avoid Covid-19 infection risks. He also wanted to spread positivity and help workers in the textile industry since many have been hit hard by the pandemic.
