The vote for the Best National Costume segment was announced on October 23 via the pageant’s fan page. Moving forward, contestants will continue to compete for the “Best National Costume” award, with the winner being unveiled in the grand finale on October 25.

Most notably, the winner of the sub-contest will progress to make it through to the Top 20 finalists of the international pageant.

As Miss Grand Vietnam, Thien An successfully received the highest score in terms of votes in the Best National Costume segment. In the competition she performed in an outfit with the theme of “Truc Chi”, with her clothes drawing inspiration from a kind of traditional painting originating from Hue in the central province of Thua Thien-Hue. The Vietnamese beauty greatly impressed both judges and audiences by wearing an outfit weighing 14 kg designed by Tran Thanh Tam.

This comes after An also won the “Country’s power of the year” sub-contest at the ongoing Miss Grand International 2022, earning a place into the Top 20 in the process. In addition, she was also named among the Top 10 of the ‘Best in Swimsuit’ sub-contest.
