Magazine Sham: Jersey Shore in Harper's Bazaar and Interview Magazine

If I knew all I had to do to make in a major Fashion magazine was live in the tanning booth, wear an exorbitant amount of hair gel and fist pump, I would've done it a long time ago.

The alien species of Guidos and Guidettes is now, sadly, the toast of the Fashion world, being shot by the industry's most renowned photographers and landing features in Fashion Magazines.

Is tacky the new trendy? Judging from Interview Magazine's photo shoot, shot by (gasp) Terri Richardson, and Harper's Bazaar's spread featuring Snooki & cohorts, the answer is a resounding Yes.

Sidenote: Apparently, J Woww tweeted she was shooting for "Harper's Bizaar" from her Twitter account. Bizaar?! (I'm currently giving the most vicious sideeye I can muster).

Maybe fashion insiders think orange skin and gelled-down bouffants are the new hot trends of the Summer season (barf). Maybe the industry tastemakers believe they can transform Snooki into a polished, fashion darling who wears clothes that aren't made with 75% spandex and lycra and sold in a cheap store that smells like polyester on the boardwalk. Maybe we're so shocked that functional human beings have no problem being seen, and filmed, in trashy clothes that we can't stop staring at it.

No matter the motive, the fact remains that your favorite magazines will run shoots with the Jersey Shore crew in the following months. See pics below...and weep.

Someone, make it stop.

ugh, really?! C'mon guys!!! I refuse to believe that orange tans and sticky, gel hairstyles are really fashionable and worth reading about. *sigh* If you can't spell it, you shouldn't have anything to do with it.
