Earlier it became known that the Iranian state IRIB channel would have been forced to interrupt the broadcast, if the host of the show is "inadequately dressed." In this regard, thousands of residents of the country asked the journalist to put on an outfit that would not lead to the termination of the broadcast.
Following the request, the journalist and her team promised to dress down for the event.
During the ceremony Komandnaya was wearing a black suit with a shallow neckline with open shoulders.
Many Iranians took to Twitter to thank Komandnaya for listening to their request.
