'Jersey Shore' girls go for toned-down glam in 'Harper's Bazaar'
After this month’s issue of Interview magazine featured a shirtless romp with the Situation, Vinny, Ronnie, and Pauly D, it was only a matter of time before the female quotient of The Jersey Shore got their own pictorial. Now, our wish (curse?) has been granted in the form of an charm school-themed photo spread in in this month’s Harper’s Bazaar.
The ladies grace the pages with New York socialite and CW reality star Tinsley Mortimer along with Emily Post’s great-great-granddaughter. In the spread, Snooki, Jwoww, and Sammi look exactly as you’d expect: hair bumps, cleavage, and that “I’m-the-sweetest-bitch-you’ll-ever-meet” look — in that order.
But flip a few photos down and the girls are stripped of their trademark accoutrements , dressed in regal gowns and pictured in a black-and-white that emphasizes the downplay:Rating these self-termed “guidettes,” I give Sammi and A+ for her pose, elegance, and overall comfort level (mind you, this is all relative) in that gorgeous Marchesa number. She looks the most ready to walk a red carpet and not throw an impromptu dance party on the boardwalk by herself.
Speaking of, Snooki seems like she’s totally lost without her Bump It, and Jwoww, who strikes the most pained pose of them all, would — let’s be real — much rather wear one of her ladylike tops.
In the behind-the-scenes video below, Snooki and Co. talk about already their etiquette skills and biggest fans: “I’d say I definitely have a lot more female fans just because I guess they look up to me or whatever,” says Snooki.
What do you think of the pictorial? And is all the omnipresent Jersey Shore PR starting to annoy anyone else (more so)?
