Duong Thuy Linh said she was happy to win the top spot at the pageant in the married genre. She devoted a lot of time and effort to make her country proud. “Before leaving, I said that I wanted to improve myself from the 2004 Miss Tourism International. At that time, I did not have much preparation, but last night I heard the name of Vietnam being called the winner. I am very happy, I am very proud to hold the national flag, “she said.

In the finale, Duong Thuy Linh and 24 contestants took part in the national competition and costumes. In the national costume, the Vietnamese beauty chose the white dress of designer Kenny Thai. The dress was inspired by the image of swan, a symbol of purity and beauty of a woman. Designer Kenny Thai used lace and mesh materials in combination with hand crafted techniques to create swan-like 3D images in the chest. In addition, the outer coat also has feathers attached to it which helped Duong Thuy Linh to look like a queen when stepping out on the stage. For the party dress, the Vietnamese representative wore Audrey Nguyen.

After two performances, Duong Thuy Linh entered the top 10 final and the question and answer portion. She received the question “What makes a girl a woman?”. Duong Thuy Linh responded confidently in English. “A girl who becomes an adult woman is at her own responsibility and loving, caring for the people around her. Personally, I find myself becoming a mature woman when I was a mother seven years ago. That’s when I felt the unconditional love. And I know not every woman is lucky to have children and understand the complete happiness of bringing a little angel to this world. “

During the 4 days participating in Mrs Worldwide 2018 in Singapore and Malaysia, Duong Thuy Linh is one of the outstanding candidates in terms of appearance, foreign language ability as well as open personality and friendliness. The busy schedule gave her only 3 hours a day to sleep. In addition, the move between Singapore to Malaysia also made her quite tired. However, when she appeared in the finale on June 24, Duong Thuy Linh still retain her radiance, glowing beauty. Her father, son, and a lot of her friends flew to Singapore to support and cheer her up.

Fans applaud model Phuong Mai’s pole dancing skills

Model Phuong Mai is known to lead large fashion shows, cultural exchanges, especially programs that require bilingual MCs.  She surprised a lot of fans when she posted a video of herself dancing on a pole.

Recently, MC Phuong Mai uploaded a clip on her personal page showing off her pole dancing skills. The MC excitedly said, “Oh my gosh, this is the first time I’ve done this kind of thing … It’s not perfect but I’m too proud to post it!”

The clip surprised many people and it received a lot of praise. Phuong Mai’s gracefulness and acrobatic skills on the pole can be compared to a professional dancer.

Phuong Mai said that from a very young age, she developed a passion of trying out different types of sports. She practiced swimming, martial arts, basketball, tennis, Muay Thai, and most recently, pole dancing. She says pole dancing helps her to be physically fit because it requires a lot of  muscular movements. This specific style of dance is physically demanding and Phuong Mai admitted that her body aches a lot, especially her arms and hands, after every performance. She almost quit dancing after an injury she had years ago but her constant training at the gym regained the confidence she needed to try the sport once again.

Phuong Mai also shared that when she first got interested with pole dancing, her parents prevented her from doing it because they found the style to be inappropriate. She was however, able to persuade them to agree to build a pole in the house to practice on.

You can find clips of Phuong Mai’s pole dancing skills on her instagram page.
