Back in the day, we had Joan Rivers on the red carpet asking celebs, “Who are you wearing?” These days, as proven by last night’s Grammy Awards red carpet rundown, media outlets tap famous guest correspondents to handle fashion reports. “Entertainment Tonight” hired former “American Idol” fave Adam Lambert to rock the fashion questions while MTV sent Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi of “Jersey Shore” fame.
But which “reporter for a day” did you like better?
As “ET” Fashion Correspondent, Lambert had three patented moves. First, he told the ladies that their outfits were “beautiful.” Then Lambert asked to see their backs. Finally, he flew into his falsetto to let out an adorably high-pitched, “Whaaaaat?!” Lambert’s selfish microphone handling needs improvement (the mic belongs in your interview subject’s face, Adam!), but he more than makes up for that by calling Taylor Swift a “glamazon” and Taboo from the Black Eyed Peas a “spaceman.” Win!
Snooki’s style was a smidge less refined than Adam’s. Just as she was on “Jersey Shore,” Snickers had zero filter. When she had a thought, she said it. In most cases, that “in your face” style yielded spectacular results. (Did you ever think you’d live to see Miley Cyrus and Fergie act star-struck?) But there were a few awkward instances, like when she told grunge gods Alice in Chains she had no idea who they were. But bonus points for Snooki getting celebs phone numbers! I’d like to see Barbara Walters try that.
So what do you think? Which celeb guest correspondent do you prefer? Leave your preference in the comments!
