The sexy songstress wowed in a red hot play suit by non other than Charbel Zoe. You’ve probably heard Charbel’s name countless times this month, since he was behind Jennifer Lopez’ look at the opening ceremony of the World Cup last month.

ARGENTINA VS. HOLLAND – The WAG Edition

After Brazil’s humiliation yesterday against Germany, the semi-finals continue tonight as Argentina take on Holland in Sao Paolo.

And as the star players battle it out on the field, let’s take a closer look at the WAGs who will be cheering them on!

I can’t but start with Lionel Messi’s stunning wife, Antonella Roccuzzo. The star player’s lady love – who is often photographed hitting the beach in skimpy bathing suits- has known the infamous number 10 since his early childhood days. The twosome officially became a couple in early 2009 and welcomed their first son- an adorable baby boy, named Thiago- a few years later.

The now Mrs. Messi can be seen cheering her husband throughout his matches for Barcelona, and there is no doubt that she will be there tonight as well!

Here’s what you need to know about Robin Van Persie‘s Wife: A former Ms. Nigeria Holland, Bouchra Van Persie received countless death threats on Twitter and was labeled as a “gold digger” when fans assumed that her husband changed football clubs under her pressure. The twosome also had a rocky start to their romance when Van Persie was accused of assaulting a stripper a few years ago. However, the couple seem to have moved on from all this drama and are often seen looking polished and fashionable in every photograph!

Gonzalo Higuain literally hit the jackpot when he started dating German born journalist, Daniela Saurwald. With dark hair, colored eyes, full lips, and a body to die for, the Spanish based reporter is absolutely drop dead gorgeous!

Wesley Sneijder met his match when he married Spanish Dutch actress Yolanthe Cabau. The Dutch star married his second wife in 2010 in a lavish ceremony, where the two looked as happy as ever in their designer wear. Since then, the couple have enjoyed several getaways and countless shopping trips together.

BRAZIL VS. GERMANY – The WAG Edition

Everyone seems to be so pumped up for tonight’s big game between Germany and Brazil! And as fans fight over who the star player of the match will be and how Germany have an advantage over Brazil who lack 2 of their key star players, I decided to shed some light on the ladies who will be cheering their men from the bleachers.

In case you’re unaware, the term “WAG” stands for “Wives and Girlfriends”; the acronym was coined by British tabloids who used it to label the English squad’s wives and girlfriends (obviously!) during the 2006 World Cup. The name caught on since then!

Let’s kick things off by introducing Manuel Nueur‘s girlfriend, Kathrin Gilch. This short-haired beauty is always photographed standing by her man, as they attend major functions together. The German model’s style can best be described as classic, favoring understated designer dresses over cleavage baring outfits. Here’s a peak at some of her memorable looks.

Neuer’s counterpart, Julio Cesar hit the jackpot when he married model Susana Werner in 2002. Werner-who was previously engaged to footballer Ronaldo- is a Brazilian model with German roots. (wonder who she’ll be cheering for tonight ;) )

But don’t let her gorgeous looks fool you- this stunner was robbed at gunpoint in Rio De Janiero last year, and emerged a stronger woman. Take a look at her best moments with her dreamy footballer husband.

Lukas Podolski‘s long-time girlfriend, Monika Puchalski is always photographed cheering her now husband on live from the stadium. The German blondie reflects an effortless style- always favoring comfy jeans, a leather jacket, and her husband’s football jersey while attending football matches.

Neymar‘s recent injury may have him reaching for his phone to dial his ex-girlfriend’s number! The Brazilian star recently split up with his young love, Bruna Marquezine. In happier times, the rising Brazilian actress was constantly photographed wearing Neymar’s Barcelona jersey.

Finally, Bastian Schweinsteiger has been happily dating Sarah Brandner for over seven years now. Aside from attending glamorous parties together, the German model dropped jaws when she posed for Sports Illustrated’s Body Painting issue a few years ago!

Jennifer slipped into a stunning emerald leotard by Charbel Zoe. I did a little digging and found out 4 things you probably didn’t know about this up and coming Lebanese designer.

He’s been designing for longer than you think!

This Lebanese young designer is quite the sensation! He’s being doing what he’s best at since 2012; in fact he even designed Miss Lebabon’s evening gown for the 2012 Miss World competition. His designs are so intricate and detailed, clearly showing off the female figure in a flattering way.

This is not the first time JLo wears one of his designs!

Charbel previously dressed Lopez in an equally stunning electric blue leotard for her performance on American Idol’s finale. The design featured sexy cutouts and lots of fringe.

He’s got a rather sizable list of international celeb clients

Charbel has previously worked with several models including Tyra Banks. Check him out below posing with non other than Carmen Electra while meeting with her for an upcoming project, as posted on his Facebook page recently.

He considers the Lebanese starlet Haifa Wehbe as his muse

Charbel has designed countless looks for Haifa Wehbe. Whether it’s for a video clip or for a stage performance, the designer always seems to know how to accentuate Haifa’s flawless silhouette, even designing a wedding dress for her character in a new series named “Kalam 3ala Waraq”. Check out the singer giving Charbel a shout out on her Instagram a few weeks ago!
