Assunto:  put on airs (or wannabe)
Mensagem:  Tiago,

I think that "wannabe" is a lot more common idiom than "to put on airs".

A wannabe is someone who wishes to be or do something, but lacks the qualifications or talent.

That wannabe thinks he's too smart

That wannabe thinks she's gonna win BBB 10
