A photo featuring supermodel Thanh Hang in white ao dai is among the exhibits
A photo exhibition called Ao dai huong sac Viet (Vietnam's charming ao dai) is now open at the Rex Hotel.
The exhibition displays the work of local photographers Le Thanh Tung, Quoc Huy and Nguyen Long. It features ten Vietnamese beauty queens, models and actresses attired in white ao dai designed by Duc Hung, Viet Hung and Thuan Viet.
Stylist Vo Thuong, who is organizing the show, said that he has nourished the idea of organizing a photo exhibition to honor the ao dai for years.
He wishes the show can be held annually, Thuong said.
Each picture will be sold for VND10 million (US$500) and all profits donated to help underprivileged students.
On the opening night on February 5, two photos of supermodel Thanh Hang and actress Thuy Nga were sold.
The exhibition will remain open until March 20.
