Roz Purcell forced to cover up at the Vatican for shoulder baring top during romantic trip to Rome
Irish model Roz Purcell admitted she was initially denied entry to the Vatican for wearing a shoulder baring top.
The former Miss Universe Ireland (28) is currently in Rome on a romantic weekend getaway with her boyfriend, music promoter Zach Desmond and the pair had geared up to visit Saint Peter's Basilica. Seemingly unaware of the dress code enforced with all visitors, which requires guests to wear long sleeve shirts and long trousers as a sign of respect.
Like most in her situation, she purchased a new t-shirt with Pope Francis' face emblazoned on it and took the opportunity to style it for Instagram.
Tours for The Vatican also recommend purchasing plastic cloaks at a gift shop to wrap around your shoulders or knees. The best-selling cookbook author has been busy documenting her travels on social media and while her beau has been notably absent from her pictures, one accessory has been taking centre stage in her holiday pictures - a velvet Prada Cahier bag, which retails for €2,200.
The couple have been busy jet-setting during their year and a half romance, travelling to Hong Kong, Paris, New York and now Rome together.
Roz, who previously revealed she works out 10 times per week, has been keeping up her active lifestyle while away and keeping followers up-to-date with her makeshift exercise regime abroad. She will soon be promoting her second cookbook Half Hour Hero, when it arrives in Irish stores later this month.
