Gisele Will Play a MAJOR Role in This Year’s World Cup Finals!

The ‘Beautiful Game’ is about to get a whole lot more beautiful!

Thanks to the fine people at FIFA, those with little interest in the World Cup will now have new incentive to tune into next month’s championship game as it is revealed that Brazil’s own national treasure, Gisele Bündchen will have the honor of presenting the winning team of the 2014 World Cup with the official FIFA World Cup Trophy.  Gisele, who remains the world’s highest-paid supermodel, will do the honors at the closing ceremony at the Maracana Mário Filho Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, slated to take place July 13.

According to the Telegraph, the super is stepping in for Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff, who’s facing scrutiny on account of the huge amount of money the country has spent to put on the games, when so many of its citizens are living in poverty.

Additionally, WWD is reporting that like Gisele, the trophy will be dressed to the nines for the occasion, sporting a customized Louis Vuitton trunk commissioned by FIFA. So as you can see, whether you’re a football fan or not, the World Cup is definitely something you’re going to want to tune into this summer!

Look of the Week: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s Stylish Stripes

The stripped pant has long been a staple among the rock n’ roll set, but as Rosie Huntington-Whiteley proved earlier this week, it’s also a chic alternative to your basic jeans.

Spotted in New York City on Wednesday, the supermodel looked especially elegant wearing a pair of navy blue and white stripped trousers and a matching menswear-inspired blazer.  To elevate the look, Rosie added a streamlined Givenchy Antigona handbag, complete with subtle, striped trim, a pair of blue suede pumps and Stella McCartney’s famed cat-eye sunglasses.  Of course, you don’t have to be a supermodel to pull the English Rose’s runway-ready look.  Vertical stripes will help elongate the leg, giving you the freedom to invest in a skinny pair like these from Saint Laurent (and they’re on now sale).  Tack on a tailored blazer or menswear-inspired cardigan, a structured top-handle bag and pointy-toe pumps and you’re good to go!

Score Rosie’s rock-star look for less after the jump!
