MANILA, Philippines – Miss Universe 2018's coronation event on Monday, December 17, at Bangkok, Thailand was brimming with beauty and grace, not just via the ladies' usual sparkly dresses, but also through the bold fashion statements of Vietnam's H'Hen Nie and Miss Universe 2017 Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters. 

H'Hen Nie sported a gorgeous top and pants during the announcement of the Top 20, straying from the norm of long gowns and short dresses. Aside from the stylish combo of a sequined crop top and flowy velvet pants, she also rocked her pixie 'do, exuding the coolnees and confidence many have been admiring her for. 

Safe to say, H'Hen Nie definitely stood out for all the right reasons.


Outgoing Miss Universe 2017 Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters also came on stage during the program to talk about her continued advocacy of women's rights, all while donning a white pantsuit.
