Country singer Kacey Musgraves sexualized, disrespected Vietnamese outfit, critics say

Many Vietnamese Americans are criticizing the country singer Kacey Musgraves for wearing just the top part of a traditional two-piece Vietnamese garment at a show in Dallas last week, saying she was not only culturally appropriating the clothing, but also sexualizing it.

Musgraves, who is white, wore an áo dài during her set Thursday, but just the tunic and not the pants that normally go with the outfit, according to photos posted on Instagram.
