On September 18, Tien officially received the Miss Grand Vietnam 2021 ribbon from her predecessor, runner-up Ngoc Thao, to attend the Miss Grand International 2021 to be held in Phuket, Thailand, in December.

Talking about the meaning of the newly-chosen national costume, she said the angel is soft but also very brave and persistent in the fight against COVID-19.

“This design exploits the characteristics of the ao dai (long dress) and depicting the resilience and strength of Vietnam in the fight against the epidemic,” she said.

Stylist Louis, who supports Tien in preparing outfits for the contest, said he planned to prepare 40 sets of costume within 17 days of the competition for her with sexy image orientation, showing off the advantages of curves through body-hugging or cut-out dresses.

Designer Nguyen Minh Tuan revealed that the semi-final costume for Tien has an unprecedented colour in the costumes of Vietnamese representatives so far, although it still has the appearance of a fancy dress.
