We’ve certainly come a long way since the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa… The last tournament saw suited-and-booted Presidents’ Sepp Blatter and Jacob Zuma hand tournament winners the coveted World Cup trophy…

But this year things are going to go a little bit differently… This World Cup won’t follow in the tradition of seeing ‘old-men-in-suits’ handover football’s most sought-after title to the World’s best team… This year, it will be someone better!

If the latest reports are to be believed, Brazilian-born supermodel Gisele Bundchen will bestow football’s newest champions with the greatest honor the sport has to offer. Among the richest women in entertainment, she will reportedly step in for Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff, who has come under intense fire from the public recently for gross mismanagement and negligence.

And with FIFA President Sepp Blatter’s popularity also low amid allegations of corruption inside football’s governing body, Bundchen seems to be the perfect replacement.

Putting aside the fact that she is one of Brazil’s hottest and best-known exports, the thing that really seems to be working in her favor is that she is a ‘safe’ choice. A model, producer and philanthropist she is married to NFL superstar Tom Brady, and works as a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations Environment Programme. With no political affiliations or agendas, she is simply a beautiful Brazilian girl who has made her mark on the international stage.

Considered one of Brazil’s most-treasured assets, Bundchen most-recently featured on this month’s cover of Vogue Brazil alongside Brazilian football sensation Neymar Jr. Last year, she was revealed by Forbes magazine as the world’s highest-paid model for a record seventh year running, earning $42 million thanks to numerous endorsement deals including, being chosen as the new spokeswoman for iconic fragrance Chanel no. 5.
