- The representative of Vietnam in Miss Intercontinental is now the subject of public interest
- She was accused of copying the walk and gown of Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray
- A lot of netizens expressed their disappointment but other defended her
The recently-concluded Miss Intercontinental pageant has been making rounds on social media after some netizens noticed something about the candidate from Vietnam.
KAMI learned that there were 85 participants in the said international beauty contest where Karen Gallman of the Philippines was crowned as the winner.
However, out of these ladies, Ngan Anh Le Au of Vietnam seemed to have caught a lot of attention from netizens as she was accused of copying Catriona Gray’s magma gown and lava walk.
The gown and walk of Catriona were said to be few of the biggest factors why she won the prestigious and highly-coveted Miss Universe crown.
Because of this, some people in the online world believed that Miss Vietnam wanted to win the crown just like how the Pinay beauty queen did more than a month ago.
According to netizens, Ngan Anh Le Au was successful in her attempt since she won the People’s Choice Award and was recognized as the fourth runner-up in the pageant.
Here are the mixed reactions from netizens:
“Nice! But as Catriona said from her advice, you should have your own uniqueness. That's it!”
“Obvious naman na ginaya nya. Dapat kumuha sya ng magaling na designer.”
“Kaloka nga pati paghawi ng buhok. Ultimo Q&A na pagkahaba-haba din ng sagot. Talagang ginaya!”
“Nakakaloka naman kung sino ang glam team ni Vietnam. Hndi man lang binigyan ng pagkakataon si Vietnam bilang siya at hindi yung ginaya. Sayang! Sana nabigyan ng gown na tatatak sa kanya at hindi yung tumatak sa iba.”
“Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Isa pa, the whole universe knows who did it first. Cool lang tayo.”
“She's just trying to win the attention and the hearts of the host country. Sa pageantry may tinatawag na strategy, kahit mga pinay queens ginagawa din to sa mga events.”
In a previous article by KAMI, the epic answer of Karen Gallman that sealed the first ever Miss Intercontinental crown for the Philippines was reported.
Miss Intercontinental 2018 is the 47th edition of the pageant and was held at the Mall of Asia Arena on January 26.
