(Newser) – You know how Project Runway daddy-dearest Tim Gunn hates to be nasty. But dish it out he will if he must. Take Jersey Shore: The fashion is vulgar!" he says on Lopez Tonight. "It's all that stretch material—the Spandex, the Lurex, the tightness, the skin. It's vulgar! I'm sorry! And what is Snooki wearing on her legs?" He gets downright cruel when he compares the Jersey Shore pad to "the monkey house at the zoo," where just like monkeys get used to their stench, the guidettes get used to their own appalling tastes. Asked if Snooki could be some kind of "fashion icon," Gunn shudders: "If Snooki is an icon of fashion, I'm leaving the industry."
