Axelle Despiegelaere had quite a productive trip to Brazil for the World Cup.
Not only did the 17-year-old get to see her home country, Belgium, dominate its group and reach the quarterfinals, she also returned home with a modeling contract thanks to her newfound fame.
Despiegelaere attended several of the Red Devils' group games clad in her country's colors, and she made her way into lots of photos (like the one below).
Despiegelaere's photos caught the eyes of soccer fans across the world, and her good looks and flowing hair even earned her several endorsement offers. Upon returning home to Belgium she signed with L'Oreal:
