It has been a busy few days for 17-year-old Belgian soccer fan Axelle Despiegelaere. On June 22, 2014, she was photographed along with other fans in the crowds at the Belgium vs. Russia match in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The stunning teen's photogenic appeal earned so much attention that, on July 9, the she was offered a modeling contract with L'Oreal. However, a Facebook image then emerged of her on a hunting trip in Africa and L'Oreal (coincidentally?) announced that her "contract has now been completed."
