The United States is known as a melting pot, rich in diversity from the many people who have arrived on our shores. A group that came somewhat later with a very rich cultural heritage is the Vietnamese, now a vibrant part of our history. With the goal of promoting the Vietnamese culture, Caesars and GEM Planners present the Miss & Mrs. Globe Vietnam-US International 2013 on Aug. 31.
Recently, I was invited to an overview of what the Miss & Mrs. Globe Vietnam-US International 2013 hopes to bring to the Atlantic City community and the world. We sat in the Palladium Ballroom at Caesars and listened to Ricky Hoang, Executive Director of Asian Marketing at Caesars, along with Julie Nguyen, Cory Tran and Wong La, pageant promoters and organizers, expound upon the highlights of the pageant.
Like all beauty pageants, it will have beautiful women. One difference from a pageant like Miss America or Miss Universe will be the age of the contestants. The Miss Division will be young women from 18 to 28. The Mrs. Division will be women from 30 to 50. Contestants must be Vietnamese citizens to enter.
The pageant will be judged by four international celebrities:
- Miss Top Model of the World, Alessanda Alores Loredana Salanta
- Miss VN World, Luu Diem Huong
- Mr. International Manhunt, Ngo Tien Doan
- Miss National Asia 2012, Victoria Phuong Nguyen
The pageant promises to have all the excitement of the best national and world beauty pageants. There will also be singers and musicians from both Vietnam and the Vietnamese community in the United States. The pageant will be a bi-lingual presentation in both Vietnamese and English. The music will need no translation.
The Miss & Mrs. Globe Vietnam-US International 2013 takes place on Saturday, Aug. 31 from 11 p.m. to 2:30 a.m. in the beautiful Circus Maximus Theater at Caesars.
