Just days before he reports to prison, Mossimo Giannulli is nearly unrecognizable.
The 57-year-old fashion designer and husband of Lori Loughlin, who is due to begin his five month prison sentence this week for his role in the college admissions scandal, was spotted leaving an office building in Beverly Hills on Monday, Nov. 16 with a noticeable new look: a shaved head. While the star has ditched his full head of hair, he was sporting a white-gray beard. The facial hair is not new for Giannulli, though, as he’s been photographed with a beard on several occasions since he and wife were first arrested in 2019. At the time, they were accused in an FBI affidavit of agreeing to “pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team—despite the fact that they did not participate in crew—thereby facilitating their admission to USC.”
After the couple pleaded not guilty in April 2019, they agreed to a plea deal in May with Giannulli pleading guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud and honest services wire and mail fraud. In August, he was sentenced to five months in prison, two years of supervised release, 250 hours of community service and a $250,000 fine.
The former Fuller House actress pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud and was sentenced to two months in prison, which she is currently serving after reporting to FCI Dublin on Oct. 30.
