Brandi Chastain's moment of joy as she clinched the first-ever women's World Cup in 1999 by scoring the winning goal is an image that will not be forgotten. In a moment of sheer excitement, Chastain fell to her knees and took off her shirt, screaming with glee. "Brandi proves that we should have no excuses as women to go out there and be the best that we can be," said actress Elisha Cuthbert, who poses as Chastain for Glamour.
