The History of Vietnamese 'Ao dai'

Ao Dai Le Pho (Áo dài Lê Phổ)

This is also a new combination from the four-body dress, a variation of the Lemur Ao Dai by painter Le Pho, called Le Pho Ao Dai

She reduced the size of the ao dai to fit the body of a Vietnamese woman, pushed the shoulder bridge, stretched the hem of the dress to touch the ground, and brought many new colors. In other words, she made it sexier, more sophisticated, and more attractive. 

After four years of popularity, the "ao dai lemur," painted by painter Le Pho, removed all Western influences and replaced them with details from the four-body dress. From this time to the 1950s, the Vietnamese Ao Dai style became highly famous in the country's tradition.

    I flew Vietnam Airlines a few years ago and the stewardesses were all wearing a modernised version of the Ao Dai.
    They looked so beautiful that I kept ordering drinks so that they would walk by, and I could check them out! I was quite drunk when I eventually landed in Ho Chi Minh! Unfortunately it was just a transit stop for me, but I felt like I got a feel for the essence of Vietnam, just by seeing the Ao Dai!

      Hi Tony , your story is really interesting, cannot imagine how drunken you were if your flight was to the other faraway land:-) The Ao Dai itself always boasts well the woman’s beauty, they even look more beautiful on the stewardesses as many of them are models and Miss Vietnam:-) Thank you for your story, i do like it:-) Cheers!

    What an interesting post! I had no idea that Vietnam had an iconic dress, which is very beautiful. I found very interesting the history of dress and I loved that you put different pictures of the dress.
