17-year old Belgian Axelle Despiegelare caught the Internet's attention when she was spotted in the stands rooting for her national team against Russia at the World Cup, and the people at beauty brand L'Oreal noticed and offered her a modeling job.

Despiegelare has already appeared in a series of advertisements for the brand on their Facebook page showing her in fan regalia cheering on the Belgian national team, as well as the above video of the L'Oreal makeover she received.

It seems as though her good fortune has taken the edge off Belgium's quarterfinal loss to Argentina.
