Belgian beauty lands modelling contract at World Cup


This is the stuff of dreams. When Belgian teen Axelle Despiegelaere showed up to support her country at the World Cup last month, we bet she didn’t expect to come away with it with a modelling contract.

Axelle was photographed cheering on her country’s team wearing a Viking style hat in her country’s colours and the snap went viral, as these things do, appearing in magazines all over the world. So, obviously Axelle set up a professional Facebook page as soon as she stepped foot on home soil.

It was here that she announced to her followers that she was offered a modelling contract for L’Oreal and obviously she said yes to it. The contract definitely must have taken away from the fact that Belgium lost against Russia in their match! Seems like the 17-year-old came away from the game with the best result.

We couldn’t imagine this ever happening to us at a Dublin game…
