Jersey Shore's Pauly D: Did He Snub Perry Ellis?

First, the "Jersey Shore" cast announced it would be hitting up fashion week. Then, several anonymous publicists revealed that no designer wanted Snookie, The Situation, et al, near their clothes. Except for Simon Doonan, who was psyched to see the kids. But now, the New York Post is reporting that Pauly D was supposedly actually invited to the Perry Ellis show--and he decided not to show up!

Perry Ellis reps wouldn't confirm the orange-hued, aspiring DJ was invited to tonight's show, but an industry insider confirms to Buzz that he was.

Friends say D is out of the country DJing a gig and couldn't make it back in time.
