The 2013 Movie Awards show has officially started, but we're still busy breaking down getting ALL the fashion details behind some of our favorite MTV stars' red carpet outfits. The Jersey Shore crew certainly wasn't short on (style) drama—ladies Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola, Jenni "JWOWW" Farley went all-out glam in glitzy gowns, while the guys Vinny Guadagnino, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro opted for some classicly-cool black and grey duds.
Sure, we've been finding ways to have THE most perfect prom all week long, but have you ever wondered how some of your favorite celebs celebrated their big night out? Well, we certainly have, and since we work at MTV (NBD), we thought we'd find out how some of our biggest stars stacked up. We rounded up prom pics from Jersey Shore, The Hills, Laguna Beach, Awkward., and TRL cast members, and, OMG, we are so excited to share them with you. Warning: Lots of awesomeness ahead.
NICOLE 'SNOOKI' POLIZZI FROM 'JERSEY SHORE'
Our girl Jersey Shore girl Snooki didn't look so much different back in the day. She definitely had the "T" of "GTL" on lock, and, um, that up-do with the tendrils cascading down the side? SO mid-2000s. She went for the classic smoky eye and nude lip look paired with a strapless teal dress, which she said she swiped up from JC Penney. Not bad, Ms. Polizzi!

Can you believe the LAST SEASON of Jersey Shore kicks off tonight (10pm EST, y'all!)? We gueeeess it makes sense since Snooki is a mom now and JWOWW is getting married soon, but MEHHHHHH. We had really gotten used to our seasonal fix of fist-pumping. *pouts while cracking open a fresh jar of pickles* It's been a fun 5 seasons, but we suppose it's time to let everyone's favorite summer residents of Seaside Heights fly the coop and pen the next chapters of their respective books. We can't wait for Season 6 to officially get underway (again, the episode premieres at 10pm EST - DON'T FORGET!), but you better believe we're going to milk these final moments for everything they're worth.

These days it seems like ALL the Jersey Shore girls have been inching their way into the fashion world—JWOWW launched her Filthy Couture line back in 2010, Snooki has been KILLIN' it in the accessories department (sunglasses, flip-flops, slippers—you name it!), and now Sammi is finally making her stylish debut. The Jersey Shore girl launched her own fitness line (called The Sammi Sweetheart Collection) in conjunction with SXE Fitness at New York Fashion Week yesterday, and we were there to watch it all go down from the front row.
One of the great things about the VMAs is that, well, we can invite all of our favorite MTV friends to the big show! Whether it's the fierce and fashion-forward cast of Teen Wolf or the fit and tan roommates of Jersey Shore, we totally welcome everyone's individual style—let's peep who wore what on the red carpet tonight!

The cast of Teen Wolf is just dang cute, and while we adore them on the small screen, we are always pleasantly surprised to find out the cast is just dreamy in real life! Tyler Posey did the perfect mix of a dressed-up-dressed-down look with his gray Hugo Boss jacket and pants paired with a graphic tee and sneakers. Crystal Reed stepped out in a vivid red lace overlay number with sheer booties and a high bun, while Colton Haynes showed off his typically-stylish self in a fitted Hugo Boss suit, blue shirt and studded Christian Louboutin loafers. Last, but CERTAINLY not least, our MTV.com red carpet host Holland Roden looked absolutely stunning in her '60-inspired Pamella Roland get-up.

Pour a little Ron Ron Juice out, guys. When Jersey Shore premieres on Thursday, October 4, it will ceremoniously mark the beginning of the end. This upcoming sixth season will also be the show's last. From bump-it poofs to baby bumps, we've watched the cast of Snooki, The Situation, DJ Pauly D, JWOWW, Vinny, Sammi Sweetheart, Ronnie, Deena, and even Angelina evolve into style stars (of their very anthropologically specific style) over the past five seasons, and while we're so happy these guys are breaking the binding on a few new chapters of their lives, the end is bittersweet. In commemoration of the seasons past and celebration of their final act, click through for the extensive style evolutions of our favorite Seaside sweeties. Enjoy!

That's it! Season 5 of our beloved fist-pumping, boardwalk dominating Jersey Shore is officially over, and what a season it was. From hair-raising drama with Deena to hard-hitting lessons with Pauly D, this fifth season at Seaside Heights has been equal parts entertaining and educational. Nowhere was this more true than in the style department, and this last episode took the cast out in one gigantic Snookilicious leopard print bang. Thus, we're spotlighting the sign-off ep's top 5 style moments. Here we go!
5. VINNY'S TOO-TIGHT TEE
Vinny wears a too-tight tee on the season finale of "Jersey Shore."
Getting ready for one of the roommates' last nights out, Vinny polls the house for some style advice. Fortunately (or unfortunately depending on how you look at it) for Vin, the Shore House loves fierce like family and doesn't intend to let their dude go out looking like a fool. Bestie Pauly D says, "Bro, that t-shirt's screaming, 'I. Don't. Fit. You.'" While Ronnie stands on the steps chuckling, Deena chimes in, "Where'd you get that? BabyGap?" Ouch. But think about how difficult spitting game at the club would have been if they let him out like that.
The Situation's custom Vinny tee.
We'll give you a minute to put down the box of tissues, fix your running mascara, y'know, take a breath and stuff. We know you're undoubtedly BUCKLED OVER in a puddle of happy tears at Vinny's triumphant return to the Jersey Shore. Us, too. It took a lot of coaxing (or forcibly robbing him from his doting mama, Paula), but they did it! The rest of the roommates were able to convince Vin to come back to the house. What did it, though? When the girls called earlier that weekend to invite him to Mike and Pauly's surprise party, Vinny didn't seem that interested in returning to the land of fist pumps and hair gel. So what was the deciding factor? What made him change his mind? His roommates seem to think it was finally seeing their smiling faces, but we know better. No one can resist the power of a custom T-shirt homage.
Last night's Jersey Shore season finale wrapped up 12 glorious episodes of insane drama, one-of-a-kind style moments, and memories SO hilarious that they will last us forever. But there's no reason to be too sad just yet—you can continue the Jersey Shore legacy by dressing up as your favorite housemate for Halloween! And if you REALLY want to score some bonus points, get all of your friends to dress up as the cast and have an Italian-style Sunday dinner right before you head out—just like at the Jersey Shore house! I know, I know, it's SUCH a good idea. You're welcome.

Snooki's moved on since her high pouf and towering stiletto days—now she rocks leopard print and furry Mukluk-style boots on (almost) a daily basis. Cop the new meatball look by adding colorful extensions, studs, and booty shorts. NOTE: You'll need a spray tan before diving into this ensemble, but that goes without saying, right? If you want even MORE ideas, try these five twists on the traditional Snooki costume.

Go ahead and rub your eyes, but this picture of Jimmy Fallon and the cast of Jersey Shore (or most of it) is no dream. That is 100 percent Vinny and Ronnie in seventies era golf-dad-meets-used-car-salesman attire. Yes, that's JWOWW rocking a conservative hemline (and a hairstyle swacked straight off Madge from The Golden Girls). You're not making up that Snooki is blowing a kiss straight at the camera lens beneath a glossy chin-length bob. And for the last time, you really are seeing Sammi "Sweetheart" in a bun and shoulder sweater peering out from behind Deena in a top-buttoned cardigan and full A-line skirt. The Jersey kids' new looks are part of a HI-LARIOUS edition of Jimmy Fallon's Jersey Shore parody series, Jersey Floor, featured on Wednesday night's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
