Rusty has a spectacular aura aboutRusty has a spectacular aura about
poner(le) la guinda =
add the finishing touch(es) | add the crowning touch
top it off | cap it off
put the icing on the cake
put the cherry on (the) top

I didn't see anywhere where adding 'al pavo' to the saying changed the meaning. Am I mistaken?
