Dynamic Duo Joins VNTM Season 7
Two new judges heat up the popular reality series
Vietnam’s Next Top Model is back and looking better than ever! On board this season is fashion designer Ly Qui Khanh and Dep Magazine’s creative director Ha Do, amping up the already formidable judging panel made up of supermodel Thanh Hang and fashion photographer Samuel Hoang.
Ly Qui Khanh is one of Vietnam’s hottest emerging fashion talents. Not only have his glamorously and sultry creations won the hearts of many female celebrities in Vietnam, but he’s also amassing a sizeable group of followers for his own “elegant-with-an-edge” street style.

His partner-in-crime, Ha Do, is widely admired for her visionary art direction for the pages of Dep Magazine. The new judge will also be coming on board as the show’s creative director. We’re beyond excited to see the stunning shoots she’ll dream up for this season.

The all-star cast of judges is not the only factor augmenting the latest installment of the popular reality show. They’ve also introduced “Top Model Online,” in which fans of the show can vote for eligible hopefuls based on the profiles and modelling photos submitted electronically. This pre-show campaign has found Season 7’s very first contestant, Vu Tran Kim Nha.
