Colombia is known for its excellent coffee and "Modern Family's" Sofia Vergara, but if Paola Cavalli gets her way, her name might soon join that esteemed list. Cavalli (pictured left) is a shoe designer who has just broken into the U.S. market by way of Puerto Rico. (There's no relation to Roberto Cavalli, the Italian fashion designer.)
Her style is reminiscent of that of 1940s actress Carmen Miranda, a virtual fruit salad of bright colors and patterns. And her background is colorful too.
