With garish, brightly coloured gear which she would clash with animal prints and lashings of make up and hair extensions, the reality star was definitely more trashy then classy.
But in the past nine years, Snooki – real name Nicole Polizzi – has not only transformed her wardrobe, but her body as well.
Gone are the bouffant hair dos and skintight mini dresses, and in there place is sleeker locks and a more fashionable wardrobe.
The transformation has coincided with a number of things; one being her journey into motherhood, having welcomed son Lorenzo in August 2012 and daughter Giovanna in September 2014 with husband Jionni LaValle.
The second is her staggering weight loss with Snooki losing over three stone.
The star has been open about her weight struggles, writing in an Instagram post in 2016: "It's no secret that I've been struggling with my weight my whole life.
"From being completely unhealthy skinny growing up, to how the world met me — binge drinking/eating and the heaviest I've ever been — to NOW, being in the best physical shape of my life and stronger than I've ever been.
“It wasn't an easy journey getting here, but it's all about hard [work] and dedication.
"I do it for my kids and I do it most importantly for myself.
"And I LOVE this life way more than my skinny/overweight days for sure! Strong is the new sexy.”
That doesn't mean to say Snooki has given up her wild antics of years gone by now she's a yummy mummy though, having been pictured looking all partied out after the Jersey Shore cast met the Geordie Shore stars for the first time ever in London this week.
But she now knows how to strike the right balance between having fun and being good, as well as how much is too much when it comes to clothes, hair and make-up.
So much so, she even launched her own fashion line in 2015, and told Refinery 29: "I definitely love tight dresses and leopard print, still.
"But after settling down with Jionni, having children, and growing up as a person, I realised that I wanted to grow up with my style, too.
"I still have fun with my outfits, but there’s a limit."
