Phuong Khanh wins national costume contest at Miss Earth 2018

Vietnamese representative Nguyen Phuong Khanh has won a gold medal for her national costume at the Miss Earth 2018 pageant being held from October 7-November 3 in Manila, the Philippines.

Ninety contestants were divided into 5 groups with the Vietnamese beauty Phuong Khanh slotting into the Asia and Oceania Group.

Because of this win at the Asia & Oceania National Costume category, the Vietnamese beauty is expected to find further success in the pageant.

Designed by Linh San, Khanh’s dress is inspired by the images of ancient Greek Gods, especially the sun god.

Linh San cleverly incorporated the goddess image into the design of the Vietnamese ao dai, combining Goddess crowns in Greek mythology and the robes of the Vietnamese female generals. This uniqueness helped Phuong Khanh conquered the jury.

Candidates from Thailand and Philippines received the silver and bronze medals in Asia, respectively.

She left a deep impression on Miss Earth 2015 Angelia Ong during her working visit to Vietnam in August to seek Vietnamese representatives for Miss Earth 2018 and 2019 pageants.

Khanh was one of the outstanding contestants to have been selected through the Leading Stars Project casting session in the northern region.

The Vietnamese representative said her desire to compete at Miss Earth is to make greater contributions to meaningful social activities, especially those  regarding to environmental issues. She also highly appreciated the educational and human values of the beauty pageant.

Khanh is 23 years old. She is 1.72m tall, weighs 51kg and measures 90-58-94. She was the second runner-up of Miss Sea Vietnam Global 2018. Khanh is currently a student of Curtin University Singapore, majoring in marketing.

The Miss Earth Pageant is an International Environmental Event channeling the beauty pageant entertainment industry as an effective tool to promote environmental awareness.

The winner of Miss Earth will serve as the Ambassador to environmental protection campaigns worldwide.

This year, Miss Earth 2018 has attracted 95 contestants across the globe. Last year, the Vietnamese representative finished in the top 16 of the beauty pageant./.
