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 (airing tonight at 10/9c on MTV), we're looking at the transformations of each star. Today we take a look at Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi. How did she go from Shore to Superstar? Let's take a look …

We've been looking at the style transformations of Jersey Shore cast members all week, and today we've come to one of the biggest transformations of them all — Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi. When Snooki first emerged, she popularized the pouf and mixed it with orange tans, thick eyeliner, heavy bronzer, and pale lips. But over the past year, she tweaked the look so it's sleeker, got bangs, kept her straggly ends trimmed, and dyed her hair red (twice). As for clothing, she hasn't ditched her signature leopard print, though she is wearing more flattering clothes that still show off her Snooki personality. Overall, we're calling this year a continuous upgrade for Snooki's style! But take a look in this gallery of Snooki's style transformation and see for yourself.

Do you think Snooki's style has gotten better?
