Axelle was a fan they kept panning to during a world cup game. If they picked her out of a crowd to film to be shown during the world cup soccer match she already has worldwide exposure. It was just a matter of time before she was offered a modeling contract
Yes, Axelle Despiegelaere has gone from a World Cup fan to an international beauty model. After images of the 17 year old supporting Belgium in the World Cup went viral online, she was contacted by the cosmetics company L'Oreal and offered a contract to model for them. Pictures of the model hunting in Africa have caused some controversy with her modeling career, however.
Sometimes, big breaks result as a matter of being in the right place at the right time. For World Cup fan Axelle Despiegelaere, the timing was perfect as her image was capture on screen and in film. Despiegelaere has a healthy, youthful, innocent appearance, which is useful to many brands targeted a young audience.
She recently got a contract with L'oreal to model their products. This isn't the first time something like this has happened. People get discovered on the streets everyday. Jennifer Lawrence was one example. It makes even more sense why this would happen at a globally televised sporting event. This seems to be a case of right place, right time.
To Belgian's beating the United States in a world cup match to her hunting animals.
