Sammi Sweetheart is a budding fashionista with her own clothing line, which means that style always comes first. Unfortunately, that also means the odds were not in her favor during the East Coast’s recent Nemo blizzard, rendering her freezing and running through the snow in peep-toe booties!

When Newsday caught up with the Jersey Shore guidette at the Project Runway Season 11 finale on Friday, Feb. 8, she revealed that it wasn’t an easy road to New York Fashion Week this year — even though she wasn’t presenting her own collection!

"Oh my God getting here was a hassle," she told Newsday, revealing that she walked through the snow in a lace dress and peep-toe booties. "It was ruining my hair and makeup and I was freezing … I'm not wearing any stockings."

Oy vey! But to her, being at Fashion Week — and more importantly, at the Project Runway show — was important enough to drive through a blizzard. Yep, she drove from upstate New York to Manhattan to get to the show!

But in the end, it was all worth it. In fact, Sammi got the surprise of a lifetime when her favorite judge, Michael Kors — who was replaced by designer Zac Posen this season — showed up. Hey, maybe they can collaborate one day...

Would you freeze in the name of fashion? Sound off below!
