Smokin' World Cup Fan Wins Big With A Modeling Contract

We may have lost to Belgium at the World Cup, but the pain doesn't stop there. Even their fans are kicking our butts.

Images of Axelle Despiegelaere, a Belgium fan in Red Devils gear who attended the World Cup game where Rio went up against Russia in June, went viral after getting posted around the web. And for good reason. Go Belgium?

The girl on the right received ZILCH.

Turns out not only did the internet appreciate Axelle's talents, but also the executives at the world's biggest beauty empire, L'Oreal. Following her June 22nd appearance at the Cup, L'Oreal offered her a modeling contract to be in Belgium's latest social media campaign. They have also made clear she will not act as a spokesperson. They reserve those spots for people like Blake Lively and Jennifer Lopez apparently.

We didn't have to wait long to see her first effort with the company. Here's a  "beauty tutorial" made by L'Oreal which has almost 1 million views since being posted on June 8th. I wish someone would pay me to get my hair cut.

So good for her. She was certainly in the right place a the right time. Shame I was never discovered after going to my 10th Oak Ridge Boys Concert. Oh well, maybe next year!
