Vo Hoang Yen – Miss Vietnam Universe 2009

Posted on Wednesday 27 May 2009

Vo Hoang Yen, a 21-year old model (born in 1988) and student from Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) has been elected by the Hoan Vu Company to represent Vietnam at the Miss Universe 2009 pageant to take place in the Bahamas on August 23rr 2009.  A controversy made headlines when the Ministry of Culture passed a regulation that allowed only one major pageant a year in Vietnam.  This year, the license was given to the Mrs. Vietnam contest.  Pageant officials tried to appeal this decision, stating that Mrs. contests could not be compared with Miss contests, but no agreement was reached.  The Hoan Vu company, which organized the 2008 Miss Universe contest in Nha Trang, picked Hoang Yen, who had been the 1st runner-up in the 2008 Hoa Hau Hoan Vu Vietnam pageant.
