Miss Universe Vietnam 2019 (Hoa hau Hoan vu Viet Nam 2019), the 4th edition of Miss Universe Vietnam, hosted its grand coronation night on 7th December 2019 where forty-four delegates competed for the national crown and the opportunity to represent Vietnam in Miss Universe 2020. At the end of the event finale, Nguyen Tran Khanh Van was crowned the new queen by Miss Universe Vietnam 2018 H’Hen Nie.

From Ho Chi Minh city, Nguyen Tran Khanh Van competed with sincerity and elegance at the national contest. Standing 175 cm tall, she was the epitome of grace and knew what she was doing as she won the crown defeating so many beautiful divas. Not new to the pageantry, Van first participated in Miss Vietnam 2014 where she placed in the Top 40. Then, she went on to participate in Miss Universe Vietnam 2015 but was only able to make it to the Top 10.
