Extreme Makeover: Jersey Girls

I bought the May issue of Harper’s Bazaar US for the sole purpose of seeing the Jersey Shore girlsSnooki, Sammi & JWowwout of their usual uniforms of too-short short shorts, “pleather leggings” and acrylic nails and into something a little more classy.

My first instinct while watching the show was to cover my eyes but, like a car crash, it’s just too fascinating not to watch. Jersey Shore is nearing the end of season one on Australian screens, but never fear Snooki, the Situation and co. are currently filming season two.

On the whole, Bazaar was disappointing, but the beautiful shots of the girlsin particular those of Sammiin formal wear was worth it alone.

I found the accompanying article patronising and it pigeonholed the girls, who I do think have good hearts and minds underneath it allyou just have to chisel through the mountains of silicone and hair extensions to get to them. It has nothing, though, on Interview’s spread on the Jersey boys, Mike “the Situation”, Pauly D, Ronnie and Vinnie, which was quite revealing and made me see most of the guidos in a different light.

Mike, you’re still a douche.
