I was kicked out of the Vatican for being ‘too sexy’ – I was told my coat and knee high boots 'weren’t appropriate'

A WOMAN claims she was thrown out of the Vatican for looking “too sexy” in an overcoat and knee-high boots that reveal a few inches of thigh.

Juju Vieira says staff at St Peter's Basilica in Rome asked her to leave because she was "not dressed properly".

The influencer, originally from Brazil, said: “I went to the Vatican like everyone else goes to take pictures.

“A gentleman who worked there came close to me and said that the place was for prayers and that I was not dressed properly and invited me to leave -kicked me out of the Vatican.

“I was embarrassed because there were other people there who heard this.  

“I felt disrespected.”

The Vatican has a strict dress code for both men and women, which involves covering shoulders and knees.

The website states: “Women are not permitted to wear sleeveless tops, crop tops, or tight shirts.

"Shoulders should be covered, and if wearing a skirt or dress, it must cover the knees.

“It is usually a good idea for women to bring a shawl and a pair of leggings when visiting during the colder months, as well as a light jacket that can be rolled up into a pleasingly tiny bag.”

Juju says she was not aware of the code before her visit on January 30 and was dressed as she would normally for a day out.

The model said: “I didn't even know there were rules.

"I was stylish in my winter clothes, everything matched.

“I went in comfortable clothes that I would feel good in for long walks.

"Comfort was my only concern.”

Juju posted about her experience to her 26,400 Instagram followers yesterday.

She called it an “unpleasant situation”.

One follower replied: “This is absurd my friend,” and others posted shocked face emojis.

However some said that it is common for people to be asked to leave for not following the dress code.

One person wrote: “Well, if you go dressed with deep necklines, very tight clothes, that's normal.

"They didn’t let my niece in also with a miniskirt and belly out.”

Earlier this week another model claimed she was barred from Universal Studios theme park because her big boobs made other visitors "uncomfortable".

And last year we told how a Wetherspoons refused to serve two women because of their revealing tops.
