A photo exhibition, initiated by fashion stylist Vo Thuong, is on display at the five-star Rex Hotel Saigon in Ho Chi Minh City’s District 1 to feature Vietnamese women’s beauty in traditional dress.
There are 50 photos featuring ten famous beauties, including Miss Grand Slam Asia 2009 Huong Giang, supermodel/actress Thanh Hang, Miss Vietnam 2008 Thuy Dung, Miss Vietnam World 2010 Diem Huong and Vietnam’s Next Top Model 2011 winner Hoang Thuy in white Ao Dai (traditional long dress) designed by Duc Hung, Viet Hung and Thuan Viet.
The photos were taken by three fashion photographers Trinh Quoc Huy, Nguyen Long and Le Thanh Tung.
According to Thuong, the exhibition’s purpose is to raise funds for scholarships for poor students in remote areas and to honor the beauty of Vietnamese women.
Benefactors who wish to help poor students can buy a photo priced at VND10 million each. Organizers expect to hold ten charity trips to the provinces of Tay Ninh, Tien Giang, Dong Nai and Vinh Long from April to December.
The photo display runs until March 20 at the Rex Hotel Saigon at 141 Nguyen Hue Boulevard, District 1.
