Fabiola+Beracasa in InStyle Hair Issue Launch Party Hosted by John Frieda Root AwakeningFabiola Beracasa is frequently pictured on the red carpets of New York wearing ensembles worthy of a quirky Hollywood starlet (a very quirky starlet, indeed), yet to those of us outside the bubble of the New York glitterati, she remains an enigma. Who is this woman, who dares wear gigantic hairy coats French Vogue editrix Carine Roitfeld probably covets?

According to socialite diary Park Avenue Peerage, Beracasa was born into privilege in Caracas, Venezuela to the daughter of a Princess and a leather goods magnate. She's apparently always had an interest in fashion; she's interned for Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel and worked in the special events department of Christian Dior. She's currently creative director of Circa, an estate jeweler.

Here are some of her most interesting red carpet looks over the past couple of years:
