Dear Jenni "Jwoww" Farley,

We applauded your knockout bod and sensibly stylish wardrobe decision at the Ab Cuts event in December in NYC. It was at this very gig that you surprised us all, and we selected you as our Look of the Day.

Let us remind you of what you wore. That violet-hued frock had such flattering draping, and you even cinched it with a wide embellished belt. Your oversized cocktail ring was a bit brash for us, but you pulled it off with ease.

And let's not forget about your hair. Your soft waves looked bouncy and elegant. We approved of the entire ensemble.

But old habits die hard, and on New Year's Eve, you showed up in a cringe-worthy showgirl-meets-hooker outfit. MTV, a network based on the very premise of breaking down boundaries and creating new views of music and entertainment, deemed your choice too risqué for basic television. (This from the folks who let three pop queens lock lips at the 2003 VMAs and dangled butt-baring Bruno onto Eminem at the 2009 VMAs!)

Thank goodness the producers suggested you cover up with a blazer, otherwise you would've sent all of us into a state of shock.

Aside from flaunting your new abs (we get it, it's working!), we're unsure what you were trying to accomplish with your see-through beaded chandelier top, under which you stuck on a pair of reflective flower pasties. Sure, the mindset of New Year's Eve is to party-hearty, but girl, that look is more tragique than très chic.

Though there may be one person who might be in your sartorial corner. Perhaps you should connect with newly sober Lindsay Lohan, Ungaro's former "artistic advisor," who oversaw those strategically placed neon heart coverups.
