A Vietnamese representative has beaten 80 other contestants to become the winner of Mrs Universe 2017.

Contestant Luu Hoang Tram – a Vietnamese mother living in the U.S. – was chosen by ERM Vietnam to represent Vietnam in the contest.

The winner was announced in the early hours of September 3 (Vietnam time) in South Africa.

“Despite being a mother of two, Luu Hoang Tram has been able to maintain breathtaking beauty, which takes a lot of effort and dedication,” said director of ERM Vietnam Nguyen Thi Thanh.

She explained how in awe she was when she met a youthful, energetic Tram.

The contestants had to compete in three different categories: ethnical dress, traditional dress and evening gown.

Thanks to her thorough preparation across all aspects including the design and talent challenges, Tram was awarded the Mrs Universe Business title, and successfully went on to become this year’s Mrs Universe.

Her outstanding ethnic dress, weighing 20-kilograms, was inspired by the rice plant called “The Golden Seeds”.
