No. Your eyes are not fooling you. That is Sammi Giancola from Jersey Shore following a stunning makeunder by the folks with xoJane.
They call her Sammi Sweetheart and with this new extraordinarily classy look she could live up to the name in a literal sense. What is possibly most shocking about this transformation of the usually super (G)T(L) orange-bronzed done-up reality star is that it took just 5 minutes!
Makeup artist Shannon Grey Williams of Ford Artists joined the crew of xo and is the person responsible for this great work. The team met Sammi down along the shore for the shoot and they even used a sweater that Sammi’s mom had to dress her down. Sammi revealed that her night-out-prep usually is a two-hour process but after the photos at xoJane she should certainly rethink all that!
Here is a side-by-side that really drives home how different Sammi’s look is following her makeunder:
Boom! Serious props to the team with xo for their Samformation. I would love for them to do the same with the other gals from Jersey Shore. What do you think of the simplified Sammi?
