The Brazilian supermodel is set to present the prize to the winning team on July 13.
Gisele Bundchen is heading back home to Brazil, where she’ll present this year’s World Cup winning team with the FIFA World Cup trophy.
The Boston Globe reports that the supermodel is doing the honor in place of Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, who has been criticized by the country’s citizens for spending a large amount of money on the games, despite Brazil’s high poverty rate.
The trophy will also come with a custom-made case, designed by Louis Vuitton, according toWWD. This isn’t the first time LV has collaborated with FIFA; the luxury French label first designed for the World Cup in 2010, when it was held in South Africa.
Bundchen who was born in Três de Maio, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil will present the prize at the closing ceremony at the Maracana Mario Filho Stadium in Rio de Janeiro on July 13.
