The organizing board of Miss World Vietnam 2021 has made an allowance in the biennial beauty pageant’s regulations for women who have undergone plastic surgery to participate in the contest.

The new allowance, based on a government decree, was introduced at the competition’s press conference in Ho Chi Minh City on Wednesday.

This is the second iteration of Miss World Vietnam – a pageant held to select a Vietnamese representative for the Miss World competition and other international beauty contests. 

The first Miss World Vietnam edition was held in 2019.

Themed ‘Suc Song Viet Nam’ (Vietnamese Vitality), this year’s competition will focus on volunteer projects and advertising the country as a safe and friendly destination in order to help boost the local tourism industry.

The pageant’s preliminary round is scheduled to take place in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi this September, with the semifinals planned for October. 

The finale will be held in the tourist city of Vung Tau in southern Ba Ria – Vung Tau Province in November.
