Pauly D. is our Jersey Shore Style Icon of the Night.
While we didn’t have any ZOMG SUITCASES moments in tonight’s episode of Jersey Shore, we forgot how cleeeeeeean it gets when our favorite fist pumpers just go out and get down. And no one does fresh to death quite like DJ Pauly D. So we gleefully anoint our second Jersey Shore Style Champ for Season 4. In case you didn’t know, this is the plan: for each Italy episode, we here at MTV Style use our unimpeachably awesome sartorial judgment to select the best JS style moments of Pauly D., Snooki, The Situation, Sammi, Ronnie, Vinny, Deena and JWOWW, measure them in a fair and shrewdly scientific manner (we eyeball it and go with our guts, sometime there is production assistant bloodshed but so it goes…), and deem a SINGLE housemate the episode winner.
We factor: commitment to fashion in the faraway, medieval (did you SEE that coffee grinder?) land of Italy, GTL-isms and any other trials and tribulations our strangers-in-a-strange-land cast members endure. And after seeing the way The Situation keeps his kicks…well, Pauly D. is a shoe-in for Season 4, Episode 2 Style Star. Badum.
Pauly D.’s massive kicks collection
While the dudes are getting ready to go out for some beat beating, we get a little peek (as we do) into each of their grooming routines. Check out the absolutely impeccable organization of Pauly’s kicks selection. They are perfect. Meticulous. Each immaculate pair, facing the same way. The Nike’s, Chucks and ’Boks are fresh out the box…making us think that Pauly may be the tidiest roommate in Italy.
That Pauly D., always prepared
Quoth Vinny, “Nice windbreaker bro!” Later, when the girls head out, they are surprised to be so cold. But not our boy Pauly. He came prepared. He knew what the weather would be like, he had his windbreaker planned, he probably even had it folded up all nice and neat in his suitcase and it’ll go back to hanging there, unwrinkled, when he returns.
Matching earring, necklace and watch in the club with Snooki.
It’s a little hard to see, but Pauly D’s jewelry game shames the ladies. His rocks are COORDINATED. He’s got his typical Pauly earring in (of course), but he ups his shine with a thick (we are talking two fingers here) chain that takes front-and-center whenever we see his glinting (often literally) face. And to nail the trifecta, he’s got a wrist watch that veers into cuff territory with the amount of jewels/sheer-size of the accessory. FLOODED.
Want to know who’ll GTL-it better than the rest? Come back here Thursday night to see who’ll get named the next Jersey Shore Style Star. It’ll blow your mind. And ours.
