Jersey Shore's Snooki Is the Next New York!

Spencer Cherasia
My new obsession and style icon is Snooki from MTV's new reality series Jersey Shore. Basically, MTV rented a house in Seaside Heights, NJ, stuck eight self-proclaimed guidos in it, and furnished it with a roof-top deck (hot tub included). While I admire the entire cast for their brazen confidence and love for everything guido, Snooki (known lovingly as Snickers or Shnookums by her castmates) is really the standout star for a few reasons. For the first half of the two hour premiere, Snooki kept it classy by taking shots of vodka with her roommates, getting wasted and stripping in the hot tub, and then falling down a flight of stairs and yelling at her roomies to hold back her hair as she puked in the bathroom. Talk about a good first impression! The self-described "Princess of Poughkeepsie" then proceeded to show up late for her first day of work, cry, and dial her parents on her duck-shaped phone to tell them she was coming home. My favorite part of the whole ordeal was Snooki's reasoning for wanting to leave the house -- it wasn't because she was embarrassed, but rather because she was used to being the center of attention at home and now her new roommates were ignoring her. In short, this bitch is BOSSY.  

I haven't seen a reality TV diva in such epic proportions since Tiffany "New York" Pollard from VH1's Flavor of Love. In terms of style, I think we can all take a cue from this sassy guidette. It takes big, erm, cajones to rock a dirt-color spray tan, hoop earrings, and a sky high guido poof and think that shiz looks good. I would also like to send out an honorable mention to JWoww for the daring neckline on her yellow halter top. Get it girl!
