Mai Phuong Thuy was crowned Miss Vietnam 2006 at the Vinpearl Resort in Nha Trang, Vietnam on August 26, 2006. She represented Vietnam at the Miss World 2006 pageant in Warsaw, Poland on September 30th, in the Asia-Pacific group. She made the top 17 in Miss World 2006 by winning the viewers’ votes around the world. In 2006, she was voted by globalbeauties.com into the Top 50 of the annual Miss Grand Slam.
Mai Phuong Thuy had posed for photographs late in 2007 for the photographer Tran Huy Hoan, the set is described as “nude photos” – perhaps artistic but still risque for a “Miss Vietnam”. Tran Huy Hoan has sold oil paintings of a nude lady which bear a likeness to Mai Phương Thúy. She supports numerous social causes, notably the Vietnamese traffic problem. She is the goodwill ambassador for the Asia Injury Prevention Foundation.
