Hollywood Reporter magazine has named Cong Tri as one of three fashion designers to earn popularity on Hollywood's red carpets, according to VnExpress.

Three designers that are favoured by Hollywood’s red carpets are Singapore-based Chelsea Scott-Blackhaill, Vietnam-based Nguyen Cong Tri and Lagos-based Mai Atafo.

"Before launching his label in 2009, self-taught designer Nguyen Cong Tri already was a favorite of Vietnam’s celebrities," it said.

His "entrée stateside arrived when Rihanna and Katy Perry embraced his inventive silhouettes, dramatic draping and intricate cutouts" in 2017.

Ever since 2019 New York Fashion Week at which Tri showcased his collection and earned a lot of kudos, his global popularity has been on the rise, with a number of celebrities choosing to wear his creations to high-profile events.

"Over the past two years, Cong Tri’s A-list moments have grown exponentially to include Beyoncé, styled by Zerina Akers, in gilded ruched velvet at the Lion King premiere and Charlize Theron with Leslie Fremar, in an ornamented sheer blouse on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," the magazine went on.

Actress Kelly Marie Tran wore Cong Tri’s design twice during her Raya and Last Dragon promotion tour.

His collections have been covered by Vogue and acclaimed by several media outlets.
