Belgian teen lands modeling contract after being photographed at World Cup

The championship match will be between Germany and Argentina, but one Belgian fan might be the biggest winner of the World Cup.
Sure, Belgium fell to Argentina 1-0 in a quarterfinal matchup, but 17-year-old Axelle Despiegelaere is leaving Brazil a winner. The beautiful blonde, who was decked out in her country's colors of red, black and yellow, was simply rooting on her team against Russia on June 22 when some photos were taken of her. It didn't take long for them to go viral, and it took even less time for the young fan to receive a modeling contract.
Four days after becoming a worldwide sensation, Despiegelaere set up a Facebook page -- which has 18,000 likes and counting -- and this week she announced she had signed with L'Oreal. In fact, she's already posted a video of herself promoting some of the beauty company's products, which can be seen here.
Now, how about Axelle Body Spray for Men?
