Nguyen Thi Loan, the second runner-up at a last year’s local beauty contest, caught an earlier flight Friday morning to London where she'll compete in an international beauty pageant.
Loan, 24, the third winner at the Miss Ethnic Vietnam 2013, had earlier got into the Top 5 of the Miss Vietnam 2010.
The 1.76 in height former baseball player is now a student of the Hanoi Trade University.
Two noted Vietnamese fashion designers Vo Viet Chung and Le Thanh Hoa have designed and sponsored all of her costumes for the upcoming contest.
Loan told Thanh Nien News that she would be carrying around 100 kilos of luggage with her to London.
The 2014 Miss World attracts contestants from over 100 nations and territories.
Around 2 billion of viewers are expected to watch the Final Round on December 14.
