Whereas for Kim Kardashian or any of her clan dresses like these are nothing new, the up and coming economy Vietnam is not yet used to seeing any of it’s celebrities wear flesh-revealing fashion in public.
29-year-old local celebrity and known Asian fashion designer Miss Ngoc Trinh showed up to the Cannes Film Festival last month in a glittering dress that barely concealed her intimate areas.

Just as neighboring China does to anyone not ‘adhering to social standards,’ Vietnam is now copying that tactic and has issued a fine to the celebrity.
The dress, which Trinh paired with spiky black heels, was “improper, offensive and has caused public outrage,” fumed Nguyen Ngoc Thien, Vietnam’s Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism, according to a report.

“She is not an artist that the ministry sent to the event. Her outfit was improper, offensive and has caused public outrage,” Thien told legislators at the National Assembly session in Hanoi, according to the Vietnam Express.
