According to Thanh Nien newspaper, the beautiful woman in the picture is the 33-year-old Ha Dieu Linh, who lives in Hanoi. She is currently working as a nurse in the hospital.

At the beginning of July, Dieu Linh visited France for a trip with her 8-year-old little daughter. In her suitcase, she also brought a silky Ao Dai dress to take pictures of the most famous French architecture.

“I really enjoy wearing Ao Dai and have always wanted to take photos with this traditional costume in France. The architecture of Paris is very charming, gorgeous, and classic, so I chose a delicate Ao Dai with white color to exude the spirit of Vietnamese women. I never thought my photos could go viral on social media,” Linh said.

Linh also felt a little bit awkward when she wore Ao Dai walking on the streets, as she was different from everyone. She covered her costume with a long coat but took the coat off when the photographer assured her it was okay, as Paris is the kingdom of fashion.

“When French people saw me in the Ao Dai dress, some realized it is a traditional Vietnamese costume and asked me if I came from Vietnam. They also complimented me and the costume. After that moment, I felt very proud of my nationality and became much more confident showing off my beauty,” she said.

Linh and her daughter took pictures at the 100-year-old Alexandre III bridge, then hurriedly moved on the subway to the Petit Palais art museum and Rivoli – one of the most famous streets in Paris to catch the last rays of sunshine. At that time, the sunset went off very quickly, so she had to take advantage of every minute to capture the best moments.

“I, my daughter, and the photographer had to take the subway station since our car could not move in the city. I left my bag and cellphone at my friend’s place, so I had no way to contact them. It was fortunate that the photographer was able to send my GPS location for them, and we waited for half an hour as they arrived to pick us up,” she said.

Introduce Ao Dai to the world

This was the second time that she had taken photos with her daughter in France. The first time was 3 years ago, and her daughter always showed her excitement when she posed with her mother for the most gorgeous pictures.

“I feel very happy and proud of having a chance to introduce our traditional Ao Dai to the outside world. I love to explore beautiful landscapes, cultures, and cuisine of the new places that I have gone to, and learn more about different aspects of life,” Linh said.

Nguyen Anh Lukas, the young aspiring photographer said this was one of the most special sets of photos that he has taken. He has been working as a professional photographer for 4 years, and always introduces the customers to the most beautiful places in France. He was proud to see his works getting praised and complimented on social media.

“She chose the sunset time to take pictures instead of the morning and wore a very beautiful traditional Ao Dai. At first, I was also confused because she didn’t tell me in advance so I couldn’t think of where to shoot the photographs. After discussing with her, she said she liked the scenes of the streets, so I took her and her daughter to Rivoli Street. At 8 pm in the summer in France, the sun does not come down, it gets dark after 10 o’clock, so you have to take advantage to capture the best moments with your camera lenses,” he said.
