Vietnamese model reportedly being investigated for 'improper' and 'offensive' outfit

A Vietnamese model who turned heads with her revealing red carpet outfit at the Cannes Film Festival might be in hot water.

Ngoc Trinh, 29, wore a see-through dress with thigh-high slits that left little to the imagination at The Hidden Life's premiere on May 19.

According to South China Morning Post, multiple sources reported that Vietnam's Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism has begun an investigation that could lead to a heavy fine against Trinh for breaching the country’s strict decency laws.

"Her outfit was improper, offensive and has caused public outrage," Minister Nguyen Ngoc Thien was quoted as saying.
