Question Eye-catcher

En Tomísimo: 'cosa que llama la atención'.
¿Se le ocurre a alguien alguna palabra, o una expresión más breve?
"Centro de atención"
"Algo 'vistoso'/'atractivo'"

Es una idea. La 't' doble me llamó la atención. Puede funcionarme en algún contexto. Gracias, Hermit.

I don't have a dictionary with me so I cannot find the correct word but
in Spanish there is a word resembling despampinante (which I know is not the correct word) that really means eye catching. Does anyone know the word I'm trying to find?

An idea come to my brain just now.
Extravaganza.

When you are trying to be more than controversial in your present.
Angelica was extravagant with her food yesterday.

Just is my point.
