'Jersey Shore' girls go for toned-down glam in 'Harper's Bazaar'

jersey-shore-bazaarAfter 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:jersey-shore-bazaar-bwRating 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)?

    pathetic. harpers is losing more and more cred by the minute.

    Snooki hates the BumpIt. She goes out of her way to make sure everyone knows her bump is natural!

    I don’t know how they did it, but the JS cast has somehow totally endeared themselves to me. I now find them hilarious and almost charming in their complete lack of self-consciousness. It’s almost like looking at puppies dressed up in funny outfits. Puppies that drink alot and get in fist fights.

    Also, can someone help a non-watcher – wasn’t there a 4th guidette? What happened to her?

    • devonbanks

      Angelina (and her trash bag luggage) left pretty early on because she didn’t want to go to work (which, from what I gather, was approx. 1 day a week)

      • Q

        uhm, WOW. Has that been added to the official list of all time dumb career decisions? Like right after Shelley Long leaving Cheers?

  • Gwen

    Can the media please stop giving these no-talent, classless “ladies” so much exposure??

  • Lola

    You have to know something is awry when Tinsley Mortimer is held up as a standard of etiquette.

  • Scott

    I’m actually shocked at how they looked cleaned up in that black and white shot, they actually look a tad classy and dare I say almost pretty…?

  • rere

    I’m w/ Q, I don’t know why but these I’ve taken a liking to these
    people. I think the girls look great dressed up. I hope they don’t bring that Angelina back.
    She wasn’t interesting to watch like the others.

    You know it’s funny, but when it’s not orange, Snooki’s face has a real Old-World quality, no?

  • A. Rae

    Remember what Harper’s Baazar was a classy magazine? What the heck is this… and as a proud native of NJ, I have to say that these posers both fail to suprise me with their antics and make me want to barf at the same time…
