Vintage Photos of Vietnamese Women Dressing in "Ao Dai" on the Streets of Saigon in the 1960s

Over hundreds of years with many variations, ‘ao dai’ (Vietnam’s traditional long gown) remains the country’s iconic dress which helps highlight the beauty and slenderness of women. ‘Ao dai’ has been seen in the wardrobe of every Vietnamese woman, and it has also been featured in many forms of artwork, including poems, songs, paintings, and photos.

In the past, Vietnamese women wore ‘ao dai’ most of the time, capturing admiring glances and attention from other people. These vintage photos show Vietnamese women wearing ‘ao dai’ on the streets of Saigon in the 1960s.
