Miss Cambodia's National Costume for Miss Universe 2018

Have questions or resources regarding Khmer Culture? This forum is all about the Kingdom of Cambodia's culture. Khmer language, Cambodian weddings, French influence, Cambodian architecture, Cambodian politics, Khmer customs, etc? This is the place. Living in Cambodia can cause you to experience a whole new level of culture shock, so feel free to talk about all things related to the Khmer people, and their traditions. And if you want something in Khmer script translated into English, you will probably find what you need.

The fans are canvassing hard for support for Miss Cambodia in the up-coming Miss Universe, but some say the candidate doesn't look Khmer enough for their taste. What is Khmer (enough) ?

She's generically very attractive, but not really smoking, and not that Khmer. No hint of Khmer lips.

I agree, she's beautiful but not really all that stunning or remarkable. She doesn't look at all Khmer, more like the ideal of beauty for many locals though: white-skin, straight nose, and weirdest of all she appears to be wearing blue/gray contacts. :?

I believe that the mongoloid look comes from far north, Chinese/ Thai/ Vietnamese genes. The true Khmer has round eyes. 8-)
Silence, exile, and cunning.

I'm partial to a flat nose. She doesn't look like any Khmer women I've seen/dated. Her eyes are green?

Expats and tourist discussing of Miss Cambodia is real Khmer? :facepalm:
