Credit: Instagram Photo: JWOWW's Gangsta Look in 2008

Jenni Farley is obsessed with fake eyelashes, high heels, and sequin tops these days, but back in 2008, she was just hanging out on rooftops with her friends, wearing trucker hats (Ashton Kutcher style), and a lot of bright-colored, clunky jewelry.

With her head tilted to the side, baggy pants, and lack of makeup, she looks entirely different than she does now — dare we say unrecognizable? Look at those shades!

JWOWW posted this crazy photo to her Instagram recently, captioning it, “#throwback #neptunes 08! #rooftop #mikeMC #creationofJWOWW.”

Is she saying that this mystery Mike created her now-famous nickname, JWOWW? Well, she is rocking dark-washed jeans with some sort of metallic bikini top — we’d say “wow,” too!

However, she doesn’t look as different as some of her castmates did back in the day (Pauly D, pre-blowout, anyone?)

But do you think JWOWW looks better now, post-Jersey Shore, or do you prefer her gangsta throwback look? Tell us below!
