The Washington Convention Center was full of poufs and spray tans Monday night as infamous Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, one of the stars of MTV’s “Jersey Shore,” descended upon D.C. for the annual Washington Auto Show.

Snooki look-a-likes from the look-a-like competition sported her signature look with matching tight dresses, platform heels and pouf hairstyles.

Emma O’Hara, a University of Maryland student, waited in this line for three hours to get an autographed from the pint-sized reality show star.

“I love her. She’s just really funny…It’s not often that you can see a real celebrity around here,” O’Hara said.

Polizzi shared the floor with automobiles from big names in the auto industry like Lexus, BMW and Saab. A full listing of featured vehicles is available on the show’s website.

More celebrities will arrive to sign autographs at the show in the following days, including DC United players and former Washington Redskin Darrel Green.

The show will continue until Feb. 6.
