Amazing Cambodia’s page has posted a photo of three Miss Cambodia 1955 winners to remind viewers of the golden age of Khmer art.

In a black and white shot, the women were smiling to the audience as they held up their awards and flowers while wearing traditional Khmer clothing.

Some Facebook users admired their beauty, and some were reminded of their own experiences.

Vuthea Sim said that their bodies are nicely natural and do not need any surgery: “As I am the next generation, I think that they are so beautiful including body and height.

Chea Vich seemed happy with the photo: “TepKennary is my mum’s friend. I’m glad to see this picture.”

Long Live said: “I used to study dance with Ms Hem when she was at Soryavaramon II Hight School.”

According to Amazing Cambodia, Ms. Hem, 70, is currently living abroad, and she is the elder sister of Mr Ev Vong Hem, a famous film director from the 1960s.

The page’s fans request that more people share stories from the 1950s and ’60s, especially about Miss Siem Reap 1957.
