For many of us, when we last saw Snooki, she was fist pumping or eating pickles, or maybe she'd left the shore house and had begun to focus on her then-soon-to-be-born baby, Lorenzo. Either way, it's been a long time, Snooks. And, in this photo we spotted from the red carpet at last week's Jingle Ball in New York, she looks awesome.
Is this the same person who wore slippers on the Jersey Shore boardwalk? The redhead in the killer white-and-black getup? Clearly, Snooki's sartorial skills have evolved quite a bit. She sticks with classic hues but a fun silhouette, and she adds pops of color with accessories that highlight her red locks. Hey, we'd never knock a girl who loves leopard print, but we much prefer Snook's style circa '13 than anything we witnessed at Seaside Heights.
And, on a separate note, if you have never seen Snooki shake it on Dancing With the Stars, then please, reserve the next several minutes to do so. Snooki/Nicole, who are you?! We don't know, but we've never been more happy to see you.
