We all know Tabatha Coffey, Bravo’s sharp-tongued Aussie style pro, from her stint on Shear Genius and her latest hit, Tabatha Takes Over. And now, she’s bringing her talents online, joining us at PEOPLE StyleWatch once weekly to dish on some of the bestand worst – celebrity looks of the week. Keep in mind the opinions below belong solely to the stylist … though she’s probably saying what lots of you are thinking, anyway!

Today she takes on Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, whose makeunder didn’t seem to last.

Snooki, Snooki, Snooki, what the hell are you wearing? You look like a pint-sized Elvira in this getup. It is completely unflattering.

And you know what else? I’m very disappointed because I know you recently lost a significant amount of weight and this dress is a disservice to all your hard work and efforts.

I just can’t understand why you (or your stylist) chose this. That slit on the side looks cheap, the lace looks like a shredded garbage bag and the fabric looks like an inexpensive polyester blended material. Ick!

What you should be wearing is a dress with subtle ruching in the center and some understated color blocking. This would elongate you instantaneously.

Now, let’s touch on your hair for a second. I know you’ve been rockin’ out some extensions for years and that you’re totally into this red hair color, but I think it is overkill with your current skin tone.

Either lighten up with the tanning or take the Cherry Juicy Juice hair color down a notch. They are not working well with each other.

Tabatha is on the money with this one! Way too much of everything! Hair make up and tan not a good look! Sorry snooks!!!!!!

Sammi on

Pfftt says her.

Snooki is actually an extremely beautiful girl. I would love to see her take it down a notch. She doesn’t need to dress garishly to draw attention, she’s beautiful enough to get that on her own.

She is a very pretty girl without all the makeup & hair color… dress is horrible though & the arms look like a lizard.

Kat on

I find it funny that she keeps saying she’s under 100 pounds. She’s not. By a longshot. Be proud of your accomplishments, but don’t lie.

Bettie on

I agree whole heartedly with Tabatha~

I agree w/ Tab. Snookie looks amazing after losing weight. She shld wear something flattering. A bit short for a ling dress.

Mary on

Tabitha rocks! 110% on the money with this one! I can’t wait to see her tackle Kim K.

I DON’T think Snooki looked in the mirror before she left the house or the mirror she did look in was fogged up with spray tan & hair spray.
