Classic Vietnamese Beauty: The Ao Dai

ao dai

Regular readers will know of my opinion that Vietnamese women are the most beautiful in the world. And that beauty is never more apparent than when they are wearing their traditional dress, the ao dai (pronounced "ow yie" by southern Vietnamese, and "ow zie" by northern Vietnamese*, with a downward inflection). Read on for more about this incomparable outfit - as the sheer beauty and elegance of Vietnamese women in their ao dai is almost indescribable, I've included videos and lots of photos!

*The way northern Vietnamese pronounce the letter d is actually softer than a z in English - kind of half way in between a z and a soft g. The English d sound in Vietnamese is represented by a d with a crossbar - I have no idea why the French decided on this convention! (Frenchman Alexander de Rhodes converted the Vietnamese alphabet from Chinese characters to the Roman alphabet in 1651.)



Above are examples of the classic white ao dai, worn by young, unmarried girls in Vietnam to symbolise their "virginal purity" (it is their standard high school uniform, for example). As can be seen, the ao dai is a two piece outfit consisting of a long-sleeved, body length gown of soft, flowing fabric, over light and loose fitting full-length pants. Yet in spite of the fact that it covers the entire body, the ao dai is actually quite sensuous, as the top is both figure hugging and has long slits up the side, which frequently show a seductive flash of bare midriff (as in the photo above).

Once they finish school (but are still unmarried), young Vietnamese women tend to prefer soft pastel shades, such as these ao dai below:



Only once they are married do they normally wear ao dai in stronger, more vivid colours, such as these examples below:



The modern ao dai has actually only been around since 1930, when Vietnamese fashion designer Cat Tuong lengthened the top so that it reached the ground, made the bodice conform to the curves of the body, and moved the buttons from under the neck at the front to an opening along the shoulder and side seam - surely the greatest fashion triumph in history! Early versions of the ao dai date all the way back to 1744 however - here is an example of a more traditional ao dai:


In the austere climate of early communist rule, the ao dai almost disappeared after the Vietnam war, as its extravagance and elegance was considered too excessive for hard work. Mercifully however, it has come back with a vengence in subsequent decades, both amongst expatriate Vietnamese and in Vietnam itself. It has since spawned many modern stylistic variations - here are a couple of examples:



This last one in particular shows just how provocative the ao dai has become, even to the point of being overtly sexual: see through fabric is now quite common, and some (such as the one above) have even removed the sleeves to show more skin!

The resurgance of the ao dai has even inspired a new generation of Vietnamese artists to create works such as this stunning Flash sequence (I very strongly recommend you watch this one - it also features a beautiful soft Vietnamese pop soundtrack). Here is the story behind the creation of this presentation - it was commissioned by, who have some awesome calendars, posters and cards with lovely, arty photos of ao dai.

Here are a couple of video clips featuring the ao dai:

As this last clip is a music video, it is obviously somewhat stylised, but Vietnamese high school girls really do look like this!

Here's a few good links:

is there an article of clothing that more perfectly illustrates class and glamor than the ao dai? and it is the vietnamese women that these look best in it. western women just do not have the figure or even look right wearing it.
(yeah, the chinese have the qi pao, and the japanese and koreans have similar, but it can be worn with ease by western women and so not the same.)
i guess men wear it too or at least have a version for them to wear.
great post dr. lee.

Posted by: oedipusrex on Aug 22, 07 | 6:08 am

Thanks oedipusrex!

Yes, there is a version for men, but it is only worn very rarely on ceromonial occasions, and I figured it wouldn't be of much interest to Asian Sirens readers - besides, this post was already lengthy enough! ;-)

Posted by: Dr. Lee on Aug 22, 07 | 6:12 am

holly scheiŖ! nice post doc. like oedipus said, there are no other women article clothing that epidomize femininity(i hope i spelled that right :) ) I am so glad i am vietnamese...too bad for you big doc :) but i bet you enjoy ao dai just the need for boobster here..that little skin triangle where the dress split is enough for me...3 cheers for doc man! :)

Posted by: LawBoy on Aug 22, 07 | 6:32 am

i dont want to see the guy version please...otherwise you will shrink little lawboy :)

Posted by: LawBoy on Aug 22, 07 | 6:33 am

Karm ern. ;-)

Posted by: Dr. Lee on Aug 22, 07 | 6:36 am

That's an Anglicised spelling of the Vietnamese expression for "thankyou", BTW. :-)

Posted by: Dr. Lee on Aug 22, 07 | 6:39 am

hey doc you violated non-english...we have to ban you now :) let me help ya...

"cam on"

you are welcome "khong co chi" nice go find half naked women wearing ao dai :))

Posted by: LawBoy on Aug 22, 07 | 6:40 am

I just gave myself a formal warning. ;-)

Posted by: Dr. Lee on Aug 22, 07 | 6:43 am

the only other article of clothing that i would considered feminine is the kimono but it seems too cumbersome and hard to take off ;) hides too much of the woman's form.

Posted by: LawBoy on Aug 22, 07 | 7:05 am

Yeah, the full kimono is actually quite unsexy, IMHO. The yukata (the simplified summer kimono) is fine, but no comparison with the ao dai!

Posted by: Dr. Lee on Aug 22, 07 | 7:11 am

I find the good ole' thong quite sexy also...and feminine. How about you guys? I do love every one of these beauties above though. Vietnamese women are like asian beauties at their finest. Very elegant to me.

Posted by: arf on Aug 22, 07 | 11:57 am

Dr. Lee and I are in agreement. Imagine that. ;)

Posted by: redlaw on Aug 22, 07 | 3:21 pm

Of added sensual pleasure is the translucence of many of the white slacks worn under the long top - especially coupled with lacey panties.

I always order a calendar from:

because it features some great photography of Vietnamese women in ao dais. Proceeds from the sales of calendars and other products go towards support of Vietnamese orphanages, so it's even more of a win-win purchase.

Posted by: Boxster2004 on Aug 22, 07 | 6:28 pm

Thanks for the link Boxster2004! It looks like they were the ones who commissioned the Flash sequence I link to in my post, so I've added info about this company to my article - not sure how I missed it in the first place!

Posted by: Dr. Lee on Aug 22, 07 | 7:25 pm

Great post; thanks.
My Japanese GF wants to go there and have one custom made!

Posted by: luvjgirls on Aug 22, 07 | 7:40 pm

I think it is safe to say I could never be an effective teacher in a Vietnamese High School.

Great post, Doc. Thanks

Let Armani takes idea about Ao Dai from A-S.
They are

Posted by: Niners on Aug 22, 07 | 10:00 pm

Superb post Doc! Great explanation and illustration of the various types and their significance. There's not a more beautiful national dress than the ao dai, and there's probably no women more beautiful than Vietnamese to wear them. You can see that the dress and the woman are really integral, one enhances the other.

I'd love to see more women wear them generally; here in the Bay Area at Vietnamese weddings etc. the women always wear ao dais, but I don't see any reason why more of them don't wear them everyday--they probably don't want to appear FOB-ish; but some of the modern ones like this, or
this would look great every day. Any petite, slender woman with long hair (I do think long hair is a part of the whole effect--it imitates the fluidity and flow of the gown; short hair would kill the whole look) could wear them. You see some women wearing cheongsams, but they are far from the feminized elegance of the ao dai.

There's a saying that "it covers everything but hides nothing." You've got to give credit to any culture that would cultivate a look for its women like that.

Unless someone can come up with some amazing stuff, I think the whole national dress thread idea (kimono, cheongsam, sari, etc.) is done with this one! There's no topping a Vietnamese woman in an ao dai.

Posted by: Bubalabobo on Aug 22, 07 | 10:58 pm

And once again, thanks for all your help with this post Bubalabobo, not to mention suggesting such a great topic in the first place!

I absolutely agree that the beauty of Vietnamese women and the beauty of the ao dai are integral, and long, straight hair is necessary to maximise the effect. IMHO, a Vietnamese girl in an ao dai is the epitomoy of elegance, grace and beauty (in the truest sense of the word). I also wish expat Vietnamese girls would wear them more regularly!

Posted by: Dr. Lee on Aug 22, 07 | 11:09 pm

Sorry for the miniphoto links! Better pic and pic here.

This girl is such a fox:

"Arf, could you help me cross this busy street?..."

Posted by: Bubalabobo on Aug 22, 07 | 11:12 pm

I agree with you on that one Doc!--we should see more of these.

Christine, you have to get your college coeds wearing these things!... I will promptly re-enroll!

Posted by: Bubalabobo on Aug 22, 07 | 11:15 pm

Looks like they block direct links!

I agree about the girl in the green dress - I wanted to get this photo into the article, but I thought the other photo of her in the same dress with another girl in an orange dress (who I think is even hotter!) was better for the article.

Posted by: Dr. Lee on Aug 22, 07 | 11:16 pm

Yeah, those two are total stunners! It looks to be pages from an ao dai manufacturer's catalog.

I'll try again!

In digging around for this I was impressed by the variety of modern styles of ao dai, which makes me hopeful that we can see more of them.

Posted by: Bubalabobo on Aug 22, 07 | 11:36 pm

Bubalabobo, seems if you send another beautiful girls with ao dai, i will make plan to move to Vietnam.
How about that???
Those are very beautifull.

Posted by: Niners on Aug 23, 07 | 12:10 am

I'd like to do that myself! I might have to make some vacation plans...

Luvjgirls, you have to encourage your lady to be an ao dai fan--you'll befit!

Posted by: Bubalabobo on Aug 23, 07 | 1:15 am

Luvjgirls, if you do not mind, share your lady picture when she use ao dai.
and let see what commentator say.

Posted by: Niners on Aug 23, 07 | 1:41 am

holy cow!! the girl in the first pic is my ex!!

Posted by: booyah399 on Aug 23, 07 | 5:28 am

holy cow!! that was my ex too :))

Posted by: LawBoy on Aug 23, 07 | 5:54 am

Great profile! It is refreshing to see a Vietnamese American girl who both looks truly Vietnamese and is proud of her heritage (and not some trashy Tila Tequlia wannabe!). You must be bummed out that she's your ex. ;-)

Posted by: Dr. Lee on Aug 23, 07 | 6:01 am

i was sad at first but my wife got me over her :))

Posted by: LawBoy on Aug 23, 07 | 6:07 am

I think if my wife and I ever split, I'm gonna travel to vietnam and do a little wife shopping/searching.

Posted by: arf on Aug 23, 07 | 11:49 am

Ouststanding profile. Love the pic of her with Lily. She certainly has a wild mix of friends, some looking like traditional sweet Viet girls, a couple more like female impersonators (the "blond")!

Posted by: luvjgirls on Aug 23, 07 | 12:05 pm

Yeah, I was wondering about the blonde too, especially as they are kissing in one photo! ;-)

Posted by: Dr. Lee on Aug 23, 07 | 6:49 pm

How come all of you say she was your ex??? :))))))
meaning she was my ex also.
I love Vietnam.

Posted by: Niners on Aug 23, 07 | 9:29 pm

I guess she's been around the block a few times. ;-)

Posted by: Dr. Lee on Aug 23, 07 | 9:54 pm

Doc, i think including your block.
What do you say?
Interested or curriousity?

Posted by: Niners on Aug 23, 07 | 10:16 pm

I acquiesce with the comments re: ao dai. It is sublimely pulchritudinous. I prefer the classic ao dai-tailored, solid or white without any adaptation, ornateness & modernization to enhance the graceful, sinuous lines of the wearer's femininity & movements. In my beloved ao dai, I am transformed from an ugly duckling to a swan. Ao dai is Viet Nam, part mystery, part revelation...

Posted by: cat-tien on Aug 24, 07 | 1:35 am

my head hurts from reading all the big words...what i got from cat was that she likes ao dai the old fashion style :) let us be the judge if you are really an ugly duckling or a swan eh. :) send doc a pix :)

Posted by: LawBoy on Aug 24, 07 | 2:31 am

Yeah cat-tien, you have quite an English vocabulary for a Vietnamese lady! And I agree with LawBoy - would love to see how you look in your ao dai. ;-)

I'm also wondering where Kim Nguyen has been lately - we want to see her in an ao dai too. ;-)

Posted by: Dr. Lee on Aug 24, 07 | 2:51 am

would you like to see me in an ao dai too ? :) : ) you horny bastard :) : )

Posted by: LawBoy on Aug 24, 07 | 3:48 am

So you're a cross-dresser? Does an ao dai feel as nice as it looks? ;-)

Posted by: Dr. Lee on Aug 24, 07 | 5:14 am

only on weekends doc :))

Posted by: LawBoy on Aug 24, 07 | 7:16 am

Hey Mr/Dr. Lee,
1/ Learn humility... the first line of your comments was vacuous & chauvinistic... NO... i am not a feminist & you're forgiven...
2/ You're not the only dr. ... down, down with self-aggrandizing... seek enlightenment...
3/how one's attach a pic? will grant you both this one-time only wish...
Enjoy your day! Thanks for the lovely comments re: ao dai

Posted by: cat-tien on Aug 24, 07 | 11:06 am

what the hell was that? :))

Posted by: LawBoy on Aug 24, 07 | 1:49 pm

I do believe she wants to send a picture...just needs a lesson on how to do so. Maybe.

Posted by: arf on Aug 24, 07 | 3:47 pm

Please provide her instruction immediately! Pics await!

Posted by: Bubalabobo on Aug 24, 07 | 4:45 pm

Hell...even I'll learn humility, if we can see some pics of cat. ^_^ I forget what humility is, though.

Posted by: arf on Aug 24, 07 | 5:20 pm

Cat-tien, I fail to see how the first line of my comment could be interpreted as vacuous - I merely commented that your English vocabulary was surprsingly large for a (presumably) non-native speaker. This is meant to be a compliment! As for the chauvnistic part, my comments did not mean to imply that ladies usually have a smaller vocabulary than men - I just though it was nicer to refer to you as a lady rather than just a 'person'. And I have no idea where your impressions of self-aggrandisement and lack of enlightenment come from!

Posted by: Dr. Lee on Aug 24, 07 | 9:02 pm

As for posting an image, upload it to a photo sharing site, and post the image URL here with the following syntax without spaces (I have to put them in there so it displays as text):

[ img ] insert image URL here [ / img ]

Posted by: Dr. Lee on Aug 24, 07 | 9:06 pm

I guess Cat-tien doesn't like you using the 'Dr.' in your name. Anyway, she recommends enlightment which is a good, spiritual thing.

Cat-tien is this the first time you post? Are you a doc too?

Posted by: daznlover on Aug 24, 07 | 10:15 pm

additionally, i fail to see how "dr." is self-aggrandizement. it is an epithet that was jokingly coined because lee is extensively knowledgeable about biology. the moniker also connotates an authoritative position here, which is a good way for us to distinguish him from the other commenters - he is a moderator! while enlightenment is always good, i don't see it as very relevant here. in general, the internet should not be taken seriously.

as an aside, i appreciate that you wrote some very poetic lines re: ao dai, as you have put it, but i unfortunately have to comment that -i think- your use of the word pulchritudinous is a little off. from what i understand, it is used typically to describe persons only, and not objects. i made this mistake a few years ago without really knowing its definition (in latin, the word for beautiful is pulchra, which led me to just assume pulchritudinous meant very beautiful in english), but i received some marks off for this error - in particular, my teacher thought i had been awkwardly pulling straight from a thesaurus.

Posted by: christine on Aug 24, 07 | 10:32 pm

my head is starting to hurt again with all these smart people....i wish i can speak gooder english too :))

Posted by: LawBoy on Aug 24, 07 | 10:50 pm

Yeah, I was originally just 'Lee', but a lot of people around here started calling me 'Dr. Lee' as a joke (in reference to, as Christine suggests, my extensive knowledge of biology and plastic surgery), so the name stuck. And I also have to agree with Christine that your use of pulchritudinous in this context is somewhat awkward - my vocabulary isn't bad either, but I prefer to use terminology that will be more comprehensible to the majority of our readers whenever possible!

Posted by: Dr. Lee on Aug 24, 07 | 10:57 pm

Me too boobs-boy, I didn't know the word pulchri... something. And I don't intend to know, lol.

Posted by: daznlover on Aug 24, 07 | 11:24 pm

all right that is enough, quit calling me boob-boy :) like you yahoos dont like soft fluffy boobs :))
hey does this mean we can all doc vagina-boy? :)

more Vietnamese women please!

Posted by: steviewong on Aug 25, 07 | 10:23 am

Hello Dr. Lee, christine, LB, & "comrades",
1/Hm... unknowingly i have caused some reactions based on a few assumptions/interpretations... I wrote 1. &2. because of Lee's "Yeah cat-tien, you have quite an English vocabulary for a Vietnamese lady!"... he assumed... i assumed that it was a male's ego... the chosen words were meant to be sarcastic or wry... instead creating nebulousness... apologies... i am learning & thanks for sharing...
2/ "Pulchritudinous" can be used literally, figuratively & humourously... objects, people, ect... it pertains to "beauty" that delights one's senses or excites intellectual or emotional admiration... glad to know we all want to learn... Here is one of man defs: Today's Word:
Pulchritudinous (adjective)

Pronunciation: [pÍl-kri-'tud-nÍs or -tyud-nÍs] Listen

Definition: Possessing physical beauty.

Usage: Doesn't sound like its meaning, does it? But this word can be used to describe anything that is exceedingly beautiful.

Suggested Usage: The natural world offers a lot of inspiration. A beautiful sunset, for example, is usual enough, but a remarkable one deserves to be called pulchritudinous. "My favorite resort is on Mt Pisgah in the Smokies. It offers a pulchritudinous view over the rolling mountains." Of course, you could confound people who don't subscribe to our WotD feature of YDC. Tell those colleagues to "have a pulchritudinous day." But always say it with a smile!

Etymology: Latin pulchritudin-, from pulcher "beautiful, fair or handsome in shape and appearance." In a spiritual or moral sense, pulcher means "fine, noble, honorable." Also, it's akin to the Latin parere "bright or shining." In light of the Latin connotations, pulchritudinous amounts to the highest praise that one can give a beautiful object or person.
ĖDr. Language,

Thanks for sharing your intellectual curiosities... knowledge is power right! Take care...

Posted by: cat-tien on Aug 25, 07 | 10:27 am

Love the topic, reminds me of my country, sorry doc but I haven't got the use of ao dai for awhile since I go to american catholic church.
Doc, I will send you a picture of me in ao dai if I can find one.

Posted by: kimnguyen_03 on Aug 25, 07 | 10:30 am

Thanks Kim! I'll look forward to it. :-)

And yes cat-tien, my original choice of words was meant to be in jest (hence the whink). I think you took them a little more seriously than I intended - we joke around a lot here! Anyway, I'm glad we got our misunderstanding sorted out. Now, don't forget to post a picture of you in your ao dai. ;-)

P.S. I've never liked 'pulchritudinous' because, as you say, it just doesn't sound beautiful!

Posted by: Dr. Lee on Aug 25, 07 | 10:41 am

That's a very difficult word, not as beautiful as the meaning.

Who is that Tracy chick? Stunning and brainy too, it seems. She seems taken, too bad.

I only had time to read this big article now, I'm enjoying the ao dai quite a lot, plenty of elegant women!

Posted by: daznlover on Aug 25, 07 | 4:07 pm

why do people insist on getting on a blog about boobs and butts and try to show us how smart they are...cant we just enjoy the views and not overwork the Roget's Thesaurus? unless you want to show us your boobs and ass, get off your highhorse will ya...we're too stupid here to understand what you are trying to say.

Posted by: LawBoy on Aug 26, 07 | 2:39 am

I am a total idiot...butttt I like girls and boobs. So I am happy. ^_^

Posted by: arf on Aug 26, 07 | 6:29 am

Posted by: LawBoy on Aug 26, 07 | 6:55 pm

Hey guys, you've probably pissed off cat-tien now, so she won't show us her ao dai pics! We have to be nice to the ladies you know. ;-)

Posted by: Dr. Lee on Aug 26, 07 | 7:58 pm

Unlike LawBoy, I like food, shelter, boobs and some brains too (besides the beer). He's scaring off the smart chicks around here, I protest!

Posted by: daznlover on Aug 26, 07 | 8:38 pm

All right then, cat-tien kindly put your pictute(s) on A-S now in oreder to stop or avoid further speculation about you.

Posted by: Niners on Aug 26, 07 | 9:34 pm

sorry dazn but who cares about her brain. plus christine is a pretty smart girl but she doenst come across as a pompous ass. plus dazn, is this really a forum to show off your robust vocabulary? if you like her brain so much have her email you her thesis, i just dont like her spouting off her mouth viet chick or not, personally i dont really care for a show off. lets not have a double standard, we surely didnt like the guys who show up here shooting off their mouth, like that ph.d guy, why would someone get a pass just because she has a vagina. sorry bro but i stand by my comment about cat. "put up or shut up"

And cat-tien...I don't think I could ever possibly indiscriminately enjoy bones. Now some meat on the other hand...that's a different story...:) I about some tenderloins of the boobs type. -_-

Posted by: arf on Aug 29, 07 | 11:41 am

Niners and LawBoy, what a dialogue. No boobs, but funny! :)

Posted by: daznlover on Aug 29, 07 | 7:17 pm

Arf, I got your point of course. And seems yummy tenderloin rare or well done boobs is very welcome.
Daznlover, where were you? It's a quiet long time ago dialogue man.
I think this is not about funny, but about how a person who said would give something but then cancelled by him/her self because someone's talking but we already did apologize, didn't we?
Then what? You see, there is nothing. It makes out of our mind. This is not a logic decision.
That's why we made a joke about yummy rare / well done tenderloin boobs. How about you?
Keep smiling ok and take it easy :)))

I'm going to introduce the term "yummy boobs tenderloin" to as many people as I can. That is the best phrase ever and just rolls off the tongue. Niners, you've got to trademark that!

Posted by: Blue Skies on Aug 30, 07 | 12:11 am

Thank you my brother.
Trademark? I have to think twice before do it. I do not want to make competition with another guys who already has one before.
Cute isn't it?

While Niners is cooking the boobs tenderloin to a yummy well done, one thing not mentioned in this thread are the funky hats that sometimes are worn with the ao dai. Up close they look like a coiled dart board made into a hat. I don't think they are a particular complement the dress.

Posted by: Bubalabobo on Aug 30, 07 | 12:36 am

Yes, I agree with you Bubalaboo. Those are very funky hats, especially the feather one.

Posted by: arf on Sep 02, 07 | 1:04 am

Posted by: cat-tien on Sep 02, 07 | 1:19 am

Where are dicks? Right here, Cat. OK, I wish I were him. Let's make a deal, I'll show you mine if you show us yours...

Posted by: Blue Skies on Sep 02, 07 | 1:30 am

Email them to Doc using "Contact Asian Sirens" and he'll be happy to post them for you.

Posted by: Bubalabobo on Sep 02, 07 | 1:34 am

Posted by: cat-tien on Sep 02, 07 | 2:04 am

Hi cat-tien. Just send me a message using the "Technical Support" link, then you'll have my email address so you can send them to me.

Posted by: Dr. Lee on Sep 02, 07 | 4:24 am

Posted by: LawBoy on Sep 02, 07 | 5:55 am

Hi Dr. Lee... the master has spoken...
LawBoy... com'on, you know what CATs look like... anyway, thanks for the laugh...

Posted by: cat-tien on Sep 02, 07 | 11:26 am

What a tease. Laaaaame!

Posted by: Blue Skies on Sep 02, 07 | 11:50 am

That's it, I am officially done with ao dai's forever. Never again will request to see pics of girls in this type of clothing again. NEVER. That is a promise. Let's move on. And I shall. Of course I may change my mind in the future.

Posted by: arf on Sep 02, 07 | 1:10 pm

Ooops, I forgot my smiley...:) Never ever serious.

Posted by: arf on Sep 02, 07 | 1:12 pm

Hi cat-tien - I've just responded to your email, so you can finally send me your pics!

Posted by: Dr. Lee on Sep 02, 07 | 8:58 pm

Here we go again. We are waiting, and please give a note, this time there will be no any delay.
Guys let's back to work on A-S, bring as much as you can ammo.

Posted by: Niners on Sep 02, 07 | 9:29 pm

Hi Dr. Lee,
Thanks for your reply but... i checked my email & there's nothing from you... did you send it CIA style or what??? i looked in the trash bin to be ascertained... nothing... thanks...

Posted by: cat-tien on Sep 02, 07 | 9:31 pm

You used a Yahoo address, which often delete perfectly legitimate emails for no good reason in my experience - please try again with another address!

Posted by: Dr. Lee on Sep 02, 07 | 10:10 pm

It might be faster if she were simply to mail 8 X 10 glossies by post....

Posted by: Bubalabobo on Sep 03, 07 | 3:37 am

I've already responded to your last email cat-tien - let me know if you don't get this one!

Posted by: Dr. Lee on Sep 03, 07 | 10:52 pm

If cat-tien is using yahoo, then maybe the email from Doc went straight into the Bulk (spam) folder. Better look there.

Yes, LawBoy, we will wait to see cat-tien in her ao dai and then see you eat your words, lol.

Posted by: daznlover on Sep 04, 07 | 8:42 pm

Okay guys, here's the pics cat-tien sent me (but as you can see, she's still teasing us!):

Posted by: Dr. Lee on Sep 05, 07 | 12:36 am

Indeed she is. I see some curves and the ao dai looks good (silk)? Oh well, teasing is a powerful female characteristic... :)

Posted by: daznlover on Sep 05, 07 | 8:12 pm

Arf, what do you think about Cat Tien? According to my oppinion, those pictures are not close enough to see how she looks. But the ao dai, yes looks good, I think that is super satin.

Posted by: Niners on Sep 05, 07 | 10:52 pm

I think I just ate my words...or was that some chicken adobe and twelve beers? Not quite sure anymore. Niners you ROCK! man.

Posted by: arf on Sep 06, 07 | 3:14 am

Yes probably satin, not silk. Niners scores again. :)

Posted by: daznlover on Sep 06, 07 | 7:29 pm

No, it's not... it's organza/silk/crepe... quite sheer & lustrous... so nothing came between me & my ao dai... anyway, thanks you, carnal comrades, for your inputs... take care...

Posted by: cat-tien on Sep 06, 07 | 11:21 pm

Lovely dress cat-tien, elegant. Thanks for finally posting them!
