After about a month of participating in the Miss International Beauty pageant, held in Urumqi, China, Diep has already earned herself 2 notable secondary titles: Miss Talent (by doing a traditional VietNamese hat dance wearing an Ao Dai) and second runner up for Miss Bikini (not to be confused with the actual Miss Bikini pageant where Huynh Thanh Tuyen will be participating in). But these 2 titles can’t even hold a candle to her biggest accomplishment yet. On August 1st in Daqing, China,  it was announced that our VietNamese representative, Vu Thi Hoang Diep, has won the final crown, gaining her the ultimate title of Miss International Beauty 2009.

1 down; 2 more to go (Miss Bikini & Universe). And speaking of going, Vo Hoang Yen is already on her way to the Bahamas for her pageant. Here are some pictures of Yen’s family & 4 year boyfriend  sending her off this morning (night time in VietNam) :
