There is an old saying: “football isn’t life or death; it’s far more important than that.” Look around any recently eliminated nation and you’ll see—there’s definitely some truth to it.
Round here we have another saying: fashion is forever. While trends come and go, one’s ability to resurrect a style (or invent something new) is rarely as evident as it is during the FIFA World Cup, as a bunch of superstars strut their stuff in front on an international media gallery.
From longstanding, global phenomenons like Neymar and Ronaldo, to newly-minted superstars like Iceland’s Rurik Gislason (whose follower count now—allegedly—consists almost entirely of Argentinian women), we have a variety of recognised faces on our hit list. And how could we forget the lesser known hirsute heroes, like Iran’s Ramin Rezaeian or Sweden’s Jimmy Durmaz, who prove you don’t have to be famous to rock an a la mode cut.
Imagine being sooooo good looking that your Instagram followers go from from 30,000 to 207,000 by playing 30 minutes at the World Cup. Take a bow, Rúrik Gíslason #fyririsland pic.twitter.com/Xr9uLRkoCk
