In many beauty competitions, I can see they have a part to show traditional clothes. In my country, the traditional clothes are " ao dai", which are known as long dress. Tell me about your traditional clothes. Thank you very much.

Thanks Pink Pearl very much for your care of my subject. I think your country and traditional clothes are really nice.
There are my pictures about our traditional clothes:
Female: In addition to being worn at traditional and festive occasions, plain white Áo Dài is the uniform for female students in many Vietnamese highschool and some universities . Many companies also require their female staff to be attired in the Áo dài.

Typical plain white Áo Dài - worn as a uniform for high school girls in Vietnam.

Royal one.
Especially , the " Áo Dài" can be worn by both man and woman, girl and boy. You can see it in the pictures about APEC 2006 meeting :
