Ivana Knoll, a former Miss Croatia, has earned the title of sexiest fan at the FIFA World Cup currently taking place in Qatar thanks to the eye-catching, daring outfits she chooses to support her nation.
The 30-year-old model and influencer has donned some of her sexiest attire during the competition despite Qatar’s conservative dress codes.
Some people have called her “disrespectful.”
She nevertheless wore a figure-hugging one-piece bikini decorated with the country of Croatia’s national checkerboard pattern in red and white. Ivana flaunted her booty to her 1.4 million Instagram followers while posing on a Doha beach.
After previously strolling around Qatar in a G-string swimsuit and violating some cultural norms, Knoll has earned the title of the World Cup’s hottest fan.
Tight dress codes have been implemented by Qatar for the World Cup. Visitors are urged to cover their shoulders and refrain from wearing short skirts. Fans who flash their figures face steep fines and even jail time.
Commenting on the potential culture clash, 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 continued, “I was super angry because if I’m not a Muslim and if we in Europe respect hijab and niqab, I think they need also to respect our way of life, our religion and in the end me wearing dresses, bikinis because I’m Catholic from Croatia who is here because of the World Cup.”
When asked if she felt that there was any risk of her being arrested, Knoll said: “I am never afraid of something like that.”
Knoll previously hit the headlines in 2018 for her choice of outfits at the World Cup in Russia.
