A 17-year-old Belgian sports fan, who was shown on television during Belgium’s group match against Russia in Brazil, has landed a gig as a model.
Axelle Despiegelaere’s horned hat and red, black and yellow-painted face began circulating around the Internet and sparked the interest of L’Oreal, who gave her a modeling contract.
She now has a unofficial Facebook page that has amassed over 280,000 likes since its creation.
Talk about being in the right place at the right time.
And Despiegelaere is already experiencing what life is like in the spotlight: Much like everyone’s favorite safari girl Kendall Jones, a photo of Despiegelaere posing next to an oryx gazelle in Africa is gaining negative media attention.
It’s unknown how much Despiegelaere’s contract with L’Oreal is worth, but the company released a video to celebrate their new client. Check it out.

Surprised there aren’t more stories like this one. Not that modeling contracts grow on trees, but the cameramen getting crowd shots at World Cup matches had quite a knack for finding the most attractive football supporters in attendance.
