The 'Jersey Shore' cast has come a long way since the show first premiered on MTV in December 2009. And their styles have evolved as well. As we gear up for the finale of season two, we're looking at the transformations of each star. Today we take a look at Vinny Guadagnino. How did he go from Shore to Superstar? Let's take a look …

Jersey Shore's Vinny Guadagnino has been wearing printed tees since the inception of the show, and judging from his yearlong style photos, he's not stopping anytime soon. We tracked 19 of Vinny's top looks in the past year, and he wore tees with fancy designs in more than half of them! However, since we were looking for a transformation, we found one — he's moved beyond Ed Hardy tees (which he wore in January) to more shirts with sayings on them, such as "I ♥ Soccer Moms" and a band shirt for The Who. Way to add a twist to classic Vinny style! But check out all the photos of Vinny's fashion from the last year and see for yourself.

Do you think Vinny's style has gotten better?

The 'Jersey Shore' cast has come a long way since the show first premiered on MTV in December 2009. And their styles have evolved as well. Today we take a look at Ronnie Ortiz-Magro. How did he go from Shore to Superstar? Let's take a look …

If there's one thing Jersey Shore's Ronnie Ortiz-Magro knows about style, it's that he doesn't need a shirt to look good. We tracked 23 of Ronnie's top looks in the past year, and he's shirtless in most of them. Sure, we were looking for a transformation, but Ronnie's change in looks is not as major as some of the other cast members, like his girl, Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola. Mostly, he got tanner since last year. Instead, Ronnie stayed true to his roots, and remained in his shirtless comfort zone through most of the year, often exposing his nipple ring for all to see. Because if Ronnie's proven anything with his style, it's that sometimes going shirtless looks better than wearing clothes.

Do you think Ronnie's style has gotten better?

Ed Westwick on October 14, September 10, and July 28.

Ed Westwick loves to show off his chest hair ... and we love to see it! The Gossip Girl star unbuttons his shirt every chance he gets, hitting the red carpet with his little chest bush popping out one time after another. Just last night, Ed attended annual Gotham magazine gala in New York and left the top three buttons of his mauve shirt open, so there was at least nine inches of hairiness for the world to gawk and drool over. That's why we need more! So, we've collected a bunch of photos of Chuck Bass Ed Westwick showing off his straggly strands. We think his chest bush is kinda sexy — so hug-able, bear-ish, manly, hot, and ... OK, we'll stop now. But what do you think?

+ Do you like when men show off their chest hair like Ed Westwick?

Justin Timberlake on Oct. 6, Justin Bieber on Oct. 13, and Mark Salling on Sept. 16.

Justin Timberlake, Justin Bieber, and Mark Salling are three of our favorite heartthrobs who've recently gone nerdy on us — and trust us, we mean that in a great way. We love that these guys have been switching up their style and going for geeky chic glasses every once in a while. But who looks hottest in thick black frames? You tell us. But first, let's take a closer look ...

Hotter with glasses? Our vote: YES.
Justin recently attended the premiere of The Social Network in a black and blue blazer and hipster glasses with thick black frames. But just last month, he showed up at the 2010 Video Music Awards in a sleek black leather jacket and left the eyewear at home. He looks awesome in glasses, like a serious, intense, studious guy. And wouldn't you want him to study you?

Hotter with glasses? Our vote: NO.
Justin Bieber looked more like an indie singer than an R&B crooner when he wore glasses, a hat, and an orange plaid shirt during a performance in Tokyo. But like Justin T., he leaves the glasses at home regularly, like when he attended last month's VMAs. We kinda like him without the glasses. They're too much of a distraction when we'd much rather focus on his famous tossed, long, side-swept hair and big brown eyes.

Hotter with glasses? Our vote: SOMETIMES.
Mark Salling pulled out his glasses when he showed up at a Macy's event last month in Los Angeles wearing thick square frames and a black shirt with a bright orange stripe. But one week earlier, the Glee star looked cool in plaid at the premiere of his show's second season. Mark Salling looks equally hot both ways, so we're really undecided on this one.

When Enrique Iglesias dropped by the MTV studios recently to chat about his hit song "I Like It" (the video features the Jersey Shore cast), we couldn't help but wonder how he perfected his play-it-cool style. Turns out, he's a natural! "I hate going shopping for clothing," he says. "I hate having to get dressed up for a performance. I’m lazy when it comes down to that. If I had to be a stylist, I would probably starve." But there is one pre-show styling move that Enrique Iglesias never skips. WAXING! Find out what this hottie waxes — yes, it's more than one place — in the clip below.

Swizz Beatz dropped by the MTV2 Sucker Free studios this week to talk fashion with host DJ Envy, where Swizz confirmed his appreciation for high-fashion accessories. Aside from sitting on the design board of Swiss watch company Audemars Piguet, he also has a steady collaboration with French luxury shoe designer Christian Louboutin. "That's like a brother from another mother," Swizz says of Louboutin. "We met two years ago — now it was on my friends boat. And he was sitting there and he was chilling, and I'm thinking it was going to be a 10-minute conversation and it turned into being six hours. We came up with concepts right there." The most famous of the collaborative designs are the spiky loafers, lace-ups, and sneakers, which have landed on everyone from Kanye West to Diddy to Chad Ochocinco. And Swizz is still working with Louboutin. "Now we're leading to a lot of different things," Swizz said. "Now, it's showtime."

Nelly at the BET Awards on October 2 in Atlanta.

Nelly loves himself some bling. The rapper has worn it on every body part capable of being accessorized — including his teeth. But Nelly debuted some new bling when he showed up to the BET Hip Hop Awards with three necklaces with studded American Express credit cards hanging as charms on bold ball chains. There was the invitation-only Black card, a Gold card, and the Platinum card. While he's a walking advertisement for American Express, it's kind of awesome that he's like "Hey world, rappers don't always flaunt stacks of cash money. Sometimes, we use credit cards — multiple ones — and maintain very good credit scores. OK? Now back off. Thanks."

Kanye West released a new track over the weekend named "Christian Dior Denim Flow" featuring Kid Cudi, Pusha T, John Legend, Lloyd Banks, and Ryan Leslie. Kanye West loves fashion, this we know, and he has name-checked high-fashion labels in his songs before. But what's most interesting about this track is how he names all of the models he wants to date in one verse! We counted 20 models in the song total, ranging from supermodels like Kate Moss to Victoria's Secret angels like Alessandra Ambrosio. And what did the models think? THEY LOVED IT! Check out how four models — Coco Rocha, Selita Ebanks, Jessica Stam, and Veronica Webb — reacted to their Kanye West shout-outs below! And the modelizer lyrics, of course.

I'm in my Christian Dior with a Veronica Webb
Noemie Lenoir, Chanel, Sessilee Lopez
Arlenis Sosa, Selita Ebanks
If you work with my people, speak that Jourdan Dunn language
Make a phone call, out to Joan Smalls
I wonder how it feel to lower Stone's walls
Jessica Gomes, y'all, I would damage her
And see if Jessica Stam got the stamina
I'm in the car with Leo and the Benz swerve
I heard Bar was friends with Esti Ginzburg
Coco Rocha, Kate Mimosa
Alessandra Ambrosio, Anja Rubik
Get Olga Kurylenko, tell her I'm very single
Abbey Lee, too — I'm a freak, boo
I'm wylin', I’m on a thousand
I wanna see Irina Shayk next to Doutzen.

I got the world in my hands, the master plan
But I don't know why I keep calling
Why I keep all of these girls at my shows
They loving me but I don’t know why
I keep calling, why I keep calling you

Christian Dior denim flow
I told her I'm tryna eat out so what we going for dinner for

JACKETS!!! BET filmed its annual Hip Hop Awards in Atlanta on Saturday night, and the boys showed up with outerwear everywhere, especially for the performances! B.o.B. wore a camouflage leather look, Swizz Beats put on textured black leather, Gucci Mane wore a varsity-inspired jacket, and finally Soulja Boy wore a black zip-up hoodie. Who had the best jacket? For us, it's a tie between B.o.B. and Swizz Beatz, but what do you think?

Sean 'Diddy' Combs got into the Scottish spirit yesterday when he performed wearing a kilt with Diddy-Dirty Money in Glasgow, Scotland, during the MTV Crashes Glasgow concert. Diddy accessorized with a baseball hat, sunglasses, and two iced-out cross chains. Though, Diddy's best accessory here might just be those shiny legs of his, don't you think?

+ Do you think Diddy looks good in a kilt?
