While you watched the final match of the 2014 FIFA World Cup at home, Gisele Bündchen, Shakira and Rihanna enjoyed the action from Maracanã Stadium in Rio de Janeiro.

The Argentina v. Germany match was a star-studded event, with famous football fans cheering on their teams from the sidelines -- and the stage.

Rihanna enthusiastically cheered Germany to a 1-0 victory over Lionel Messi and Argentina, but made sure to show support for the home country by sporting a body paint Brazilian flag on her neck.

Earlier in the day, Shakira took to the stage to set the World Cup on fire! Alongside Carlos Santana and Wyclef Jean, she performed "Dare (La La La)" at the closing ceremonies. The Colombiana even brought her adorable 17-month-old son, Milan, to the stage to enjoy the once-in-a-lifetime festivities. 

Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bündchen played an important role at the match: she presented the 2014 FIFA World Cup trophy prior to the match, alongside retired Spanish footballer Carlos Puyol. After delivering the precious cargo in a Louis Vuitton luggage case, she retreated to the stands where she watched the match with husband, New England Patriots' quarterback Tom Brady. 

Fellow celebs Ashton Kutcher, David Beckham, Daniel Craig, Adriana Lima, Taylor Kitsch, and Sarah Hyland all flew to Rio for the sporting event, as well.
