Georgina Rodriguez at Risk of Fine in Saudi Arabia

In a country where modesty and decency are mandatory, Georgina Rodriguez and her partner, football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, recently moved to Saudi Arabia. However, the model found herself at odds with the strict dress code, appearing in a short skirt at a dinner event and risking a financial penalty.
The Strict Dress Code in Saudi Arabia
The dress code in Saudi Arabia dictates that women must wear loose-fitting clothing that covers their elbows and ankles, as well as traditional attire such as the abaya.
Tight-fitting or see-through clothing is strictly prohibited, with no clear list of banned garments available. "It is recommended that, in public, you wear loose-fitting clothes that cover up to the elbow and below the ankle," explains the Visit Saudi tourism website.
Despite this, Rodriguez broke the rule, facing the possibility of a fine for her infraction.
Possible Financial Penalties for Infractions
With Georgina Rodriguez at risk of breaking this rule, this could bring her a financial penalty.
The first time a visitor commits such an infraction, a fine of 100 riyals, equivalent to approximately 25 euros, must be paid. For subsequent breaches, the fine increases to 200 riyals, roughly 50 euros.
Soy Georgina Returns: Set to Debut in March
The highly-anticipated second season of the popular reality series "I am Georgina" is set to hit Netflix screens in March, following the success of the first season.
The show, which delves into the life of Georgina Rodriguez, the girlfriend of football icon Cristiano Ronaldo, has already generated a buzz amongst audiences and critics alike. A teaser video for the upcoming season was recently shared, providing fans with a tantalizing glimpse of what's to come.

Despite the potential financial penalties, the cost of staying in a luxurious five-star hotel with family, friends, and staff, is likely of little concern to the couple. Nevertheless, they will surely aim to avoid any further infractions of the dress code in their new home.
