To accessorize, Roccuzzo matched her top with a pair of gold dangle earrings that featured a purple gemstone hanging down. She added a pair of gold rings with a silver-toned bracelet to the look.

The model completed the look with a pair of white and pink Louis Vuitton sneakers. The leather shoes featured a color block pattern with the sides embossed with Louis Vuitton’s signature Monogram pattern. The model was designed by the late Virgil Abloh who drew inspiration from vintage basketball sneakers.

When it comes to footwear, Roccuzzo often gravitates towards chunky sneakers when off-duty. If she’s making a red carpet appearance or sitting in front row at a fashion show, she goes for a pair of heeled boots or stiletto pumps.

She’ll continue to watch the games in practical style as Adidas-sponsored athlete Lionel continues to lead Argentina on the field.

The FIFA World Cup — also known as the World Cup — is an international soccer competition between senior men’s national teams within the Fédération Internationale de Football Association.
