H’hen Nie, a 26-year-old of the Ede ethnic minority group in the Central Highlands province of Daklak, won Miss Universe Vietnam 2017 on the coronation night held at the Crown Convention Center in the central coast city of Nha Trang in Khanh Hoa Province on Saturday night.

The final round of the Miss Universe Vietnam 2017 competition was attended by 42 beauties nationwide who displayed their catwalk skills through ao dai (traditional Vietnamese long dress), evening gown and bikini performances. Then, the top five contestants entered a Q&A session to compete for the crown.

H’hen Nie, who is 1.72 meters tall, took home a crown worth VND2.7 billion (US$118,800) and a cash prize of VND200 million thanks to her outstanding performance. In addition, she will represent Vietnam at the Miss Universe beauty pageant this year.

First and second runners-up were professional models Hoang Thuy and Mau Thuy respectively.

This was the third time the Miss Universe Vietnam had been organized since 2008. Earlier, Nguyen Thuy Lam from the northern province of Thai Binh was honored Miss Universe Vietnam 2008 while Pham Thi Huong (also known as Pham Huong) from the northern city of Haiphong was crowned Miss Universe Vietnam 2015.

The 2017 edition of the beauty pageant was suspended for two months in November last year by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism in the wake of online backlash as the semi-final round of the contest was live broadcast from the flood-ravaged Nha Trang City in Khanh Hoa Province at a when thousands of residents in the coastal province were coping with Typhoon Damrey.
