Harper’s Bazaar makes over the girls of Jersey Shore

Harper's Bazaar makes over the girls of Jersey Shore, Snooki, JWoww, Sammi

Okay, so did I mention I’ve been sucked into watching Jersey Shore?

At first, it was all rather horrifying—the tanning, the nails, the lingerie-as-outerwear—but like a trainwreck, I couldn’t turn away.

Now, it’s doing something crazy to my brain. I’m at Season One, Episode Eight, and I’m starting to think that Ronnie is kind of cute… and that maybe JWoww’s chunky highlights kind of work for her. What is happening to me?

Anyway, I was intrigued to hear about Harper’s Bazaar‘s May issue, in which they give the Jersey Shore females a “charm school” makeover (with a little help from Tinsley Mortimer and Lizzie Post).

You can see the slideshow here. Do they look uncomfortable or what?

P.S. My favourite line from the Stylelist.com write-up:

“Snooki… rolled up to the shoot in a trucker hat, while JWoww attacked from all fronts in a hooded pink sweat suit, Ugg-style boots, a studded Christian Audigier bag, purple-streaked hair and a hot-pink, bedazzled French manicure.”

God I love this show.

Snooki looks half demure Italian widow half Black Widow who would kill a man just to watch him die (and empty his bank account.) The girl on the right looks good though. And don’t worry. If you start wearing Juicy sweats with flipflops and a French pedicure (Gah!), we’ll know they got to you. And we’ll stage an intervention.

Totally – I’m scared of both Snooki and JWoww in this pic. Only Sammi cleans up well.

I take it this means I can’t wear Juicy on the plane tomorrow then… :-)

That’s why god invented straight-leg yoga pants: feel like sweats, look like leggings. (And yes, no pants with words on the bum and yes, we will be doing a pre-boarding french pedicure check.)

Or jeggings. I was initially against them, until I realized they were the perfect hybrid jean-sweatpant for homebound workers. (i.e. you can look presentable when the UPS guy arrives, etc.)
