Khanh Van, Miss Universe Vietnam 2019, has been named as the Vietnamese representative at Miss Universe 2020. With Van deciding to wear an Ao Dai, a traditional long dress, during the national costume segment of the competition, the dress is to be the main theme for this year’s design contest.

Indeed, Van has plenty of experience of competing in beauty pageants, having previously won the Miss Ao Dai sub-titles twice in the 2015 and 2019 versions of Miss Universe Vietnam. The beauty says she feels comfortable and confident when wearing the outfit.
