Prior to this, Vietnamese beauty Do Thi Lan Anh received the Best Appearance award on the opening day of the Miss Earth pageant.

These impressive achievements will provide a significant advantage for the Vietnamese representative in the race for the Top 20.

This is the second time Vietnam has hosted this prestigious global pageant, with the previous edition taking place in 2010.

In previous events, Nguyen Phuong Khanh defeated 86 other contestants to win Miss Earth 2018, making her the first Vietnamese beauty to win one of the Big Four international pageants.
