The beauty pageant, which gathers 67 beauties from different countries and territories, will take place in Japan, Hong Kong and Macao from October 19 to November 8.

Duong won the Miss Talent due and was among the top 10 finalists of the Miss Sport 2007 in Viet Nam. She said she is preparing for this contest by improving her English skills and knowledge of culture and history.

She is also practising other important skills, including performing, communicating, and doing her make-up.

“I also have practised some martial arts to perform in the exchange programme during the pageant,” said the beauty, who graduated from the Yen Bai Sports College.

During the beauty contest, Duong will present evening dresses by designer Hoang Hai, while her ao dai (traditional dress) will be made by designer David Minh Duc.

Duong, who works as a model with the international modelling agency Elite, will leave Viet Nam on Saturday to join the other contestants in Japan. Duong competed in the same pageant last year and won the Miss International Image title, thanks to on-line votes from the audience.

The Miss International contest was first held in 1961 in Long Beach, California and now is one of the five most prestigious beauty contests in the world.
