That 17-Year-Old World Cup Fan Just Signed a Modeling Contract With L'Oreal

And our hair envy is through the roof.

You might think it's only the World Cup players that have a lot at stake during a match, but a fan could have just as much to win.

Two weeks ago, a 17-year-old fan from Belgium named Axelle Despiegelaere was rooting for her country's team when a photo of her decked out in Red Devils paraphernalia in the stands was taken. The internet was captivated by the Belgian stunner and the image immediately went viral, earning Despiegelaere a colassal 227,000 likes on a Facebook fan page.

As if that wasn't enough of a life-altering win, the teenager was approached by L'Oréal for a modeling contact and has officially signed on. Her first endeavour with the international beauty brand? A beauty tutorial video as part of the brand's social media campaign, which has already racked up a monster 437,200 views and counting. Full disclosure: our hair envy is through the roof. Watch the video, below, and remember your big break could just be a fancam pan away.

Update:

L'Oréal has ended its contract with Despiegelaere after a photo of her surfaced in which she's holding a rifle over what appears to be a dead gazelle. Fans immediately took to social media to voice their outrage.

Soon after, L’Oréal released the following statement:

"Axelle de Spiegelaere is not one of L’Oréal Professionnel’s spokespeople. L’Oréal Professionnel Belgium collaborated with her on an ad hoc basis to produce a video for social media use in Belgium. This has now been produced."
