Can you smell that? It's the scent of Snooki wafting all over, well, the WORLD really. Jersey Shore's favorite pint-sized meatball may be on hiatus from the show, but she's still out there promoting herself like one seriously savvy (and ambitious) entrepreneur. Not only did she recently launch both her signature perfume and a slew of products on HSN (did you get your hands on one of the coveted Crocodillies?) she's been rockin' all kinds of CRAY outfits to show off her new svelte physique. Remember that super tight black dress and side-swept hair combo at the EMA? Or those blinding Modcloth neon lace-up wedge booties she wore with a red leopard dress? Well, this is the permanently puckered guidette's new style AMMO because she popped by the set of Extra wearing those very same shoes and another body-con dress. Her hair was something else altogether, though. Snookems has been keeping it more natural these days, but it looks like the pouf she made famous has returned—or rather, it has morphed into some sort of '60s-style coiffure teased to EXTRA high heights.
OK, let's take a look at Snooki's ensemble for a mo'. The royal blue she chose actually does wonders for her mega tan. It's just the right shade of azure and doesn't clash too harshly with her leopard necklace, pink star and lips rings, pink hoops, or those fluoro boots (wait, NO, those booties totally clash with everything but Snooks makes 'em work). Miss P still has shades of crimson red she debuted for fall clinging to the tips of her hair, and she's got the smoky eye on lock for her go-to beauty regime. But this hair! It's back to its old self with the high-maintenance teasing up over the back of her head. While it's not a typical guidette pouf, it has a more refined and retro sort of feel that's more along the lines of a Jersey version of '80s TV star Elvira. Could Snooki be the new Mistress of the Dark? In those boots and hair, YES, yes she could.
