Ex-Miss Croatia Ivana Knoll is defying Qatar’s ‘dress modestly’ ruling and claims she is ‘never afraid’ of arrest in Qatar for skimpy outfits that have seen Croatian national showcase skin-tight, flag-themed attire
Former Miss Croatia Ivana Knoll has expressed a lack of fear over being arrested in Qatar as she parades stadiums in a series of skimpy outfits.
The Croatian national appears fearless in the face of wearing her “comfortable” World Cup outfits, declaring that she has no fear of arrest in the Middle Eastern country.
Initially left “super angry” by the dress code laws of the Gulf state, it would appear that Knoll is defying the “dress modestly” rulings with a series of outfits that leave little to the imagination.
Despite her potential flagrancy in the face of the law, the 26-year-old Instagram star has claimed enforcement officials do not particularly care.
Qatari authorities are “not making any problems” for the ex-Miss Croatia, who boasts a series of World Cup-based snaps on her 700k follower strong Instagram account.
Her selection of outfits at the tournament so far have seen the 26-year-old, under the username knolldoll, appear at stadium after stadium looking fresh and ready for World Cup action.
She is following the Croatian national team, whose Luka Modrić-led squad got off to a slow start in their first game, Knoll claimed.
Her full-length red and white checkered dress with a hood was sported for Croatia’s opening match, a 0-0 snooze with Morocco.
Knoll has claimed that her outfits, which have also included skimpy bikinis and a series of swimsuits, have been received with “very good” reactions from the Qatari people.
She said: “The reactions are very good. Many of the Qatari people came to me to photograph me.”
The 26-year-old even attended the second match of Croatia’s tournament, a 4-1 drubbing for Knoll’s home country against Canada.
Speaking on the dress code rules at the time, Knoll said: “First I was thinking if the World Cup is happening there (Qatar), for sure they will allow us everything to make it comfortable for all fans without any of the restrictions.
“Then I heard about the rules and I was shocked. The dress code forbids showing shoulders, knees, belly and everything and I was like ‘Oh my God, I don’t even have the clothes to cover all of that’.”
She added though that she was “surprised” that there were few problems about the dress code, and that Qatar would “allow you to wear everything what you want – except in government buildings”.
