jwoww snookiWhen MTV rang in the New Year from their prime spot in Times Square, they had two of the year's biggest stars on hand to host: Snooki and JWoww emceed the big night, and while the evening went off without a hitch for the most part, our friends over at Wetpaint pointed out that JWoww suffered a wardrobe malfunction.

Wuh-oh. Wellll, when you sport a sparkly mini-dress barely long enough to cover your hoo-ha like she did, you're gonna have to accept that you're taking a serious fashion risk to begin with, amirite?! And so, rather unsurprisingly at one point, Jenni's dress hitched up to the point where you could see pretty much the entire tops of her thighs and bottom of her booty ... not to mention, something all sorts of funky we can't quiiiite identify. Um, OMG, could those be ... butt pasties?! Butt IMPLANTS?!

No, seriously, what the heck!? Are they? Otherwise, maybe it's butt padding or distorted-looking Spanx (due to the angle of the camera?). Whatever it is, it was a really bad idea underneath such a teeny tiny dress. I wouldn't be surprised if whatever it was actually played a part in causing her dress to hitch up too high. You know how sometimes shapewear actually works against your outfit? Hello, this could very well be an illustrated example of that. On national TV. Ouch.

What makes me feel even worse for her is that we all know she doesn't need anything at all to make her figure look hotter. She looks amazing, period, the end. If the desired effect was for her to look like she had MORE junk in her trunk in that dress, I'm sorry, but ... no. She still looked sort of flat-assed ... but still awesome. And if it was the opposite -- aka what Bridget Jones might call shaping "granny knickers" -- then hopefully she's learned her lesson that such a bulky undergarment may not work out so well under a dress like that.

Bottom-line: Maybe next time, she can consider adding an inch or two to her skirt, and skipping the not at all subtle attempt at butt shaping. Cuz when you're wearing a dress that teensy-weensy on national TV, you're just setting yourself up for a fashion faux pas.

What do you think is going on there under JWoww's dress?
