From Wikipedia: The ao dai (áo dài) is a Vietnamese national costume primarily for women. In its current form, it is a tight-fitting silk dress worn over pantaloons. In modern Vietnamese, áo refers to an item of clothing that covers from the neck down. Dài means “long.”[1]

The ao dai is now standard for weddings, for celebrating Tết and for other formal occasions. A plain white ao dai is a common high school school uniform in the South. Companies often require their female staff to wear uniforms that include the ao dai, so flight attendants, receptionists, restaurant staff, and hotel workers in Vietnam may be seen wearing it.


The most popular style of ao dai fits tightly around the wearer’s upper torso, emphasizing her bust and curves. Although the dress covers the entire body, it is thought to be provocative, especially when it is made of thin fabric. “The ao dai covers everything, but hides nothing,” according to one saying.[14] The dress must be individually fitted and usually requires several weeks for a tailor to complete. An ao dai costs about $200 in the U.S. and about $40 in Vietnam.[20]

” Symbolically, the ao dai invokes nostalgia and timelessness associated with a gendered image of the homeland for which many Vietnamese people throughout the diaspora yearn, ” wrote Nhi T. Lieu, an assistant professor at the University of Texas at Austin. [ 4 ] The difficulties of working while wearing an ao dai link the dress to frailty and innocence, she wrote. [ 4 ] Vietnamese writers who favor the use of the ao dai as a school uniform cite the inconvenience of wearing it as an advantage, a way of teaching students feminine behavior such as modesty, caution, and a refined manner. [ 18 ]The ao dai appears in many movies with Vietnam-related themes. In Good Morning Vietnam ( 1987 ), Robin Williams’s character is wowed by ao dai-clad women when he first arrives in Saigon. The 1992 films Indochine and The Lover inspired several international fashion houses to design ao dai collections. [ 21 ] In the Vietnamese film The White Silk Dress ( 2007 ), an ao dai is the sole legacy that the mother of a poverty-stricken family has to pass on to her daughters. [ 22 ] The Hanoi City Complex, a 65 – story building now under construction, will have an ao dai-inspired design. [ 23 ] Vietnamese designers created ao dai for the contestants in the Miss Universe beauty contest, which was held July 2008 in Nha Trang, Vietnam.
