It's going to be hot and sexy in Sao Paulo

A World Cup in Brazil is going to be amazing. The fashion scene in Sao Paulo is great. Their fashion week is one of the best in the world. So I expect all the WAG's to come out in their best of clothes. It's definitely going to be hot and sexy in Sao Paulo.

On the footballing front, I hope England win the Cup this time. They have a nice, young side that could throw up a few surprises. But they are in a very tough group with Italy, Uruguay and Costa Rica so it's difficult to say anything.

Apart from England, I'll be supporting Portugal, Argentina and Spain. Lionel Messi has regained form and is eager to prove himself with his national team. And you cannot leave out the defending champs — Spain.

Majority of their players won the 2010 World Cup, so they are still dangerous. Cristiano Ronaldo is unstoppable, and is single-handedly capable of guiding Portugal to the knockouts. Being the hosts, Brazil have an edge. They have skillful players who combine well. Also, having home support and conditions will help.

I remember I was in Berlin during the 2006 World Cup, and it was a wonderful experience. I was lucky to watch Portugal and England play. To see Wayne Rooney come out of the tunnel was a dream come true.

But what was more amazing was how people celebrate the tournament in the host city. The bars were full and there were screens showing the match everywhere. The vibe around it is amazing.

I can't wait for the World Cup to start, even though the games will be shown at night. Will I be up to watch? Of course! Nights will be mornings and mornings will be night.
