Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that the 2014 FIFA World Cup is underway. But what we bet you didn’t know is that fashion is a big part of the events.
According to Women’s Wear Daily, the World Cup trophy is being protected in a Louis Vuitton-designed case. “The case opens from the front and at the top to allow the trophy to be easily removed when, at the final game on July 13, it will be delivered to the captain of the winning game,” the company said.
Pretty fancy, huh?
As if that wasn’t cool enough, the world’s most famous supermodel, Gisele Bundchen, will present the trophy to the winners. According to The Boston Globe, the head of state usually bestows the winning team with the cup, but because Brazil’s president Dilma Rousseff isn’t a fan-favorite, Bundchen will be doing the honors. That makes total sense because if the president isn’t available to represent the country, the next best thing is Gisele (nope, we’re totally not being sarcastic.) Bundchen is super open about her love for her native country and for soccer. She posted an adorable photo to Instagram of herself holding a Brazilian soccer ball just the other day…
So, it’s clear, all eyes (even our fashion ones) will be on the final game come July to see three of our favorite things: Louis Vuitton, cute guys and Gisele Bundchen.
Are you excited to see the World Cup trophy be presented this year?
