Jersey Shore's Guidettes Get a High-Fashion Makeover in Charm School

Good-bye Ed Hardy! The ladies of the Jersey Shore have ditched their bedazzled minidresses for some serious high-fashion–courtesy of Harper’s Bazaar, which also sent Snooki, J-Woww and Sammi “Sweetheart” to etiquette lessons with Emily Post’s great great grandaughter Lizzie Post and Manhattan socialite–and fellow reality star–Tinsley Mortimer. “I know a couple things about manners,” Snooki tells the fashion magazine. “I just haven’t been using them.” Donning gowns from Marchesa, Chado Ralph Rucci and J. Mendel, the self-described “guidettes” looked every bit high-society, but their Jersey Shore style isn’t something they are giving up for good–and for Snooki, that means keeping the infamous bump. “It was a teen Guidette thing, and when everyone grew out of it, I just kept it,” she says. In fact, the pint-sized reality star is even “launching the Snookit,” her own version of the Bumpit! To hear more from the Jersey Shore guidettes, pick up the May issue of Harper’s Bazaar, or visit Tell us: What do you think of Snooki, JWoww and Sammi’s high-fashion makeover? Is this a look they should keep? -Andrea DeSimone

I love it! I think they love absolutely gorgeous in those pictures! Totally running out to grab an issue of Harper’s Bazaar!!

Wow that one sitting looks like a very old Italian woman. How old is she? So not flattering. The other two look okay but they are some HARD looking chicks

Kat on

They all look beautiful in the first shot, especially Sammi.

I think that there is no hope for Snookie.

hey, these girls almost look human. how can Jersey be so different (i mean behind in fashion, hair,clothes) from the west coast or even the mid-west? girls look soooooo much better here than in reality.

Snooki looks unattractive….if professional make-up, expensive clothes doesn’t help you then nothing will.

I am shocked. They actually look amazing.

Gert…these girls are NOT from NJ they are from NY….they don’t look New Jersey….they look STATEN ISLAND! You’d completely understand if you were from the “real” Jersey Shore! ;)
