Model Bertram shows off her stunning figure
Sharing photos wearing a red and white football shirt-inspired ensemble, there was no Mbappe.
Just a mention of the organisers and a thank you.
She captioned the snaps: “What a beautiful night walking for Qatar Fashion United! Big thank you to Carine Roitfeld, CR Runway and Vladimir Roitfeld.”
In recent months, reports in his homeland have claimed Mbappe is smitten by the Belgium beauty.
Their paths crossed on one of their fashion jaunts in Paris, although either is yet to confirm a romance.
But Bertram is known to the football world…
Her ex played
The two got together when she was just 19, and had a whirlwind romance – where she followed his career from Paris to Istanbul to Sardinia and Toronto.
They would welcome two children in their time together.
But cracks began to form in their relationship as van der Wiel suffered some mental health problems such as anxiety and panic attacks, which began to affect the couple.
Earlier this year, Rose said: “There are a lot of people who deal with this.
“It’s not talked about enough and in my case if you don’t know enough about it, it’s very difficult to understand that person.
“It hasn’t always been easy to deal with. It breaks my heart that he feels this way and that I can’t help it.”
After eight years together, they sadly parted ways.
She says she still has a good relationship with Gregory .
Rose said: “He is the father of my children and I would be very sorry if we broke up in a bad way.”

A career to fall back on
However, despite van der Wiel’s problems off the field – Bertram’s career went from strength-to-strength.
At 13, it was her mother who managed to sign her on to a modelling agency.
By 16, she was cast by the Dominique agency at 16 and appeared in a photoshoot by famed German photographer Juergen Teller.
Through the years, Bertram has starred in ad campaigns for H&M, L’Oréal, Hunkemöller, Primark and Agent Provocateur.

The same year, she became the first Belgian model to appear in the Sports Illustrated Swim Issue.
Keeping it private
Mbappe has always kept his personal life private and remained tight-lipped about his girlfriends.
For years, it was suggested he dated former Miss France Alicia Aylies.
But now it appears that mother-of-two Bertram has charmed the PSG forward.
She admitted she’s ready to move on from van der Wiel.
