Context is the expression:

Explanation:
He was after fame and glitz (something shiny what can be stapped on the real substance and hide it to provide a fasade or veneer). Pozlátko does not exactly mean a celebrity status and therefore a fame but depending on the context even those can be potentially used as a broad description.

Thanks for taking the time to answer. I used "glitz" as it could remind readers of the common expression "glitz and glamour"... No other word really came to me :-(
