Model Ngoc Trinh could be heavily fined in Vietnam for 'offensive' dress worn on Cannes red carpet


Vietnamese officials are looking to fine the model Ngoc Trinh for wearing a very revealing dress when hitting the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival because it was ‘offensive.’

Trinh, 29, was photographed from every angle while wearing a see-through, black bodice-style dress on the red carpet for the premiere of A Hidden Life — about conscientious objector Austrian Franz Jägerstätter who refuses to fight the Nazis in World War II — at Palais du Festival, in Cannes on May 19.

While at the National Assembly session in Hanoi, Vietnam’s Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism, Nguyen Ngoc Thien, told legislators Wednesday that Trihn’s ‘outfit was improper, offensive and has caused public outrage’ in their home country, according to VNExpress.

Furthermore, he said, she ‘is not an artist that the ministry sent to the event.’

Thien is now said to be ordering officials to investigate her for violating public decency laws and potentially fine her as a result of wearing that dress at the film festival. 

Vietnam is said to levy cash penalties on people who wear too revealing clothing in public. Many of those who are fined are said to be celebrities.  

Thien grabbed headlines by leaving nothing to to the imagination as the bombshell offered a look at her cleavage in the raunchy keyhole neckline. 

Double thigh-splits ensured a lot of leg was on display but glistening beaded detailing was stitched into the train to preserve some of her modesty.

Trinh was on the Cannes red carpet to make a statement as she sauntered her way through the crowds in extremely steep block heels. 

All eyes were on her slender figure as she arranged her chocolate shade locks into a pinned back bun and defined her features with striking make-up.

Trinh was also spotted at the star-studded Chopard party where she joined Nick Jonas, 26, and his wife Priyanka Chopra, 36. 

Among the crowded A-list pack of stars at Cannes, she stands out as one of Vietnam’s most glamorous models known for her eponymous line Ngoc Trinh.

Thanks to her modelling credentials, Ngoc has achieved the title Photogenic Supermodel Vietnam.

Since her late arrival in the south of France on Sunday, the beauty has given her 2.2m followers social media fans a look into her trip to Cannes. 

Days after Trihn wore the dress, designed by Do Long, on the red carpet, a spokesperson for Vietnam’s Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism told VNExpress that the dress was ‘overdone and offensive’ and that ‘It goes against Vietnamese tradition and people should speak out against this uncultured behavior.’   

Trinh, who is supposedly called the ‘lingerie queen,’ did not offer any apologies for deciding to wear the scandal-causing dress. 

‘I’ve got a lot of praise for my outfit. I don’t care if people criticize it because I felt pretty in the dress, which made a good impression on the Cannes red carpet,’ she told VNExpress. ‘I cannot satisfy the whole world.’
