She may be living it up Italian style, but Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi won't be trading in her signature look anytime soon. The breakout star of MTV's "The Jersey Shore" has been in Florence, Italy, with her castmates to film the reality hit's fourth season, and she also has been focused on building a brand. Over the last year, the pint-sized Polizzi — who stands at 4 feet, 9 inches — debuted her first footwear line, Snooki Slippers, with Happy Feet, followed by a collection of flip-flops with MeyeWorld LLC. She's also bowed a jewelry and sunglasses line, and a book, "The Shore Thing." When Footwear News talked with Polizzi, she gushed about her affinity for towering stilettos and platform pumps and her latest shoe ventures. Could more be on the horizon? "I haven't thought about it too much," she said, "but it would be awesome." Here, the Poughkeepsie, N.Y., native opens up about boys, booze and the beach.

Must-have shoe brand: Nina. “The light-up heels are pretty sick.”

I can’t watch a movie without: “A snuggle partner.”

Best celebrity style: Nicki Minaj. “She’s amazing.”

Dream vacation: Bora Bora

I never leave home without: “Bronzer and pink lipstick.”

Funniest person I know: “Myself.”

If “The Snooki” were a cocktail, the key ingredients would be: “Pickle juice, vodka and wine, [and it] would have a little umbrella.”
