We all know Tabatha Coffey, Bravo’s sharp-tongued Aussie style pro, from her stint on Shear Genius and her latest hit, Tabatha Takes Over. And now, she’s bringing her talents online, joining us at PEOPLE StyleWatch once weekly to dish on some of the bestand worst – celebrity looks of the week. Keep in mind the opinions below belong solely to the stylist … though she’s probably saying what lots of you are thinking, anyway!

Today she takes on Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, whose makeunder didn’t seem to last.

Snooki, Snooki, Snooki, what the hell are you wearing? You look like a pint-sized Elvira in this getup. It is completely unflattering.

And you know what else? I’m very disappointed because I know you recently lost a significant amount of weight and this dress is a disservice to all your hard work and efforts.

I just can’t understand why you (or your stylist) chose this. That slit on the side looks cheap, the lace looks like a shredded garbage bag and the fabric looks like an inexpensive polyester blended material. Ick!

What you should be wearing is a dress with subtle ruching in the center and some understated color blocking. This would elongate you instantaneously.

Now, let’s touch on your hair for a second. I know you’ve been rockin’ out some extensions for years and that you’re totally into this red hair color, but I think it is overkill with your current skin tone.

Either lighten up with the tanning or take the Cherry Juicy Juice hair color down a notch. They are not working well with each other.

The subtext to this conversion is the indefinable concept of taste. Some women have grown up with a different definition of “classy” or “sexy” than others…so there’s no point to saying mean things about someone like this, even if we are all thinking it. We need more civility, and less cruelty.

You can’t wear these long dresses when you are so short.. and I agree lighten up on the tanning and go natural with the hair.. you are a mom now dial it down ..

i really wish she would have left her teeth alone! her teeth look like an old person’s false teeth. her natural teeth and smile were just fine. she looks weird now. in snooki’s case, less is more. she’s pretty when she isnt all painted up….

Jenn on

I think Tabatha was a little unfair. For Snooki, this is a vast improvement. Baby steps, people, baby steps…

She’s a teeny woman. She should cut that hair about 10 inches and wear much more form fitting, simple dresses. This is just a hot mess.

You gotta love Tabatha- because not only does she call ‘em how she sees ‘em, but you know she isn’t doing it to be mean. She is saying the TRUTH, spade’s a spade.

Snookie would look cute in an understated, natural look I bet

Lisa on

Tabatha is right on the money. This is a mess.

Snooks, You have a special place in my heart. You make me laugh when you share your outlook. It’s so innocent. Anyway, about your appearance ……lose the red hair and go back to what God gave you. I really think that color cheapens your look. Sincerely, Betho
