The caption further explained, “In Vietnamese culture, rich colors are adored, but for this special celebration we wanted Kelly Marie Tran to feel like royalty, so we went with the black and gold. The hand beaded “Gold” of phoenix and lotus motif details represent the intricate art and culture of Vietnam. The headdress “khăn đống” symbolizes power. The image of a phoenix rising from the ash perfectly suits the beautiful and strong Kelly Marie Tran combined with the lotus motif in the center of the headdress, which is the national flower of Vietnam.
