Vietnamese women’s recent achievements in international pageants have seen the nation’s beauty ranking rise.

Missosology.org, a leading pageant-related community forum, has published Top 20 Timeless Beauty 2018 rankings based on the total score in five contests: Miss Universe, Miss World, Miss International, Miss Supranational and Miss Earth.

Vietnam has risen to fifth place with a total of 507 points, 10 ranks higher than in 2017.

According to Missosology, the country gained when Phuong Khanh won Miss Earth 2018, and slipped when its representative did not progress at Miss International.

H'Hen Nie's top 5 finish in the Miss Universe contest late last year will keep the spotlight on Vietnam in the coming years, the website says.

With 647 points, Venezuela topped the list, marking the 18th time the country has won the title. The Philippines came in second place with 616 points. Mexico was in third place with 598 points.

In addition to the above achievements, Vietnam also ranked eighth among the 10 countries with outstanding achievements in beauty contests in 2018, as assessed by Global Beauties.

This achievement was included among the Top 10 Typical Cultural Events of the Year by Vietnam's Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.

Phuong Khanh and H'Hen Niê ranked fifth with 3,939 points. Minh Tu, a Supranational Vietnam contestant, ranked 22nd with 3,273 points.
