A Vietnamese socialite who had attended some of the shows during last month’s fashion weeks in Europe had tested positive for COVID-19 upon returning to Vietnam.

Nga Nguyen, the 27-year-old daughter of a steel magnate, was at the Yves Saint Laurent and Gucci shows in Paris and Milan, respectively, according to South China Morning Post (SCMP).

Her sister, Nguyen Hong Nhung, 26, was with her on the trip and later tested positive for the virus as well.

SCMP reported that Nga originally posted photos of her visit to the fashion shows on Instagram, but has since deleted the photos. A quick search on Instagram also revealed that she seemed to have deactivated her account.

The Saint Laurent show on Feb 25 was part of Paris Fashion Week, one of the biggest fashion shows in the world. Before that, the sisters attended the Gucci show for Milan Fashion Week, which took place on Feb 19.
