Ivana Knoll is officially recognized as a popular figure on Instagram!
Since the World Cup, the ex-Miss Croatia's popularity has skyrocketed. Astonishingly, her Instagram page was viewed by an astonishing one billion people in December alone.
Ivana's striking appearance and penchant for provocative clothing certainly contribute to her appeal. But it's not just her physical appearance that draws in followers.
Her Instagram also offers a glimpse into her luxurious lifestyle, showcasing her travels to exotic destinations, attendance at red carpet events, and interactions with celebrities such as Drake and Jamie Foxx.
Additionally, her being interviewed by Piers Morgan also adds to her fame.
At the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, Ivana first gained attention for her appearances in the stands, wearing revealing and patriotic Croatian attire. However, amidst the vibrant and colorful atmosphere of the event, she did not stand out significantly.
In contrast, at the World Cup in Qatar, where a highly conservative dress code is expected of women, Ivana immediately caught attention. She was seen walking on waterfronts wearing G-strings, posing in barely-there bikinis and attending matches in tight-fitting and revealing costumes, all of which broke the norm.
Ivana faced criticism for her disregard of the country's Islamic customs. However, she maintains that she had only positive interactions with the locals throughout her six-week stay.
"I was very surprised and very happy that they accepted my clothing," she told Piers Morgan during an interview last month.
"Lots of Arab and Qatari people came to do photos with me. Males, females and kids … everyone. It was really nice to see.
"I didn't have any bad reactions, and I was very happy about that because they accepted us, the people from other countries, and I was happy about this."
