Ao Dai of days gone by

Ao Dai, a long gown with buttons down the front that is worn with trousers has become the national symbol of feminine beauty and a source of national pride for the Vietnamese people.
On the occasion of Vietnamese Women’s Day, let’s take a look back at photos of the graceful Ao Dai on the streets of Saigon taken in 1961 by US Life magazine photographers.

Ao Dai are dresses for all ages. It has become the standard costume for any important or formal occasion such as a national holiday or a traditional festival.  

Ao Dai is also considered an intangible cultural heritage.

A plain white Ao Dai is a common high school outfit.
