Pairs Division: Tatum & Dewan-Tatum

Posted on June 25, 2012

You didn’t think we’d forget, did you? Like Lorenzo would let an opportunity to lovingly format Channing Tatum pictures go by.

Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum attend the premiere of “Magic Mike” at the 2012 Los Angeles Film Festival. Jenna Dewan-Tatum wore a Gucci dress.

Well, shit. You two kids could’ve at least made it a little hard on us.

HE: Looks pretty perfect. Maybe a bit too gray for our tastes (and for June), but he’s not exactly wrong for going that route. Everything fits impeccably. Honest, we can’t find a thing to complain about. He shaved, his hair is styled, he’s tastefully dressed and everything fits perfectly. Sure, we wish he’d get his hands out of his pockets for pictures, but that’s just nitpicking. Score: 9.5/10. As much as we appreciate how he looks, we can’t give a perfect score just because a guy took a bath and got his suit tailored properly. A very high score, but not a perfect one.

SHE: Is very tiny, which means she can get away with a very tiny skirt. We don’t mind that it’s short but the proportions look just slightly off to us; like either the top needed to be an inch shorter or the skirt needed to be an inch longer. The makeup is drag-flawless. Hair’s a bit too tight, but she looks very chic overall. Score: 9/10. She looks gorgeous, but the proportions are slightly off. Still, it’s a great look for a celeb wife out supporting her celeb husband. “I’m still hot as shit, but tonight’s all about you, baby.”

Combined Score: 9.25/10. Nicely done. Chic and put together, but not fussy or overly attention-seeking.

      Wow – they nailed it. This is the best I’ve ever seen him look. 

      • fursa_saida

        I agree. I think maybe he’s lost a little of the bulk he had in his chest and shoulders, which is only a good thing in my mind. It was too much, and it made it impossible for him to properly fit a jacket.

        • Mary G. Perry

          they slapped on him for these pics is kinda making him look like a matte finish Ken

        • BazoDee

          Yeah -the UK previews for Magic Mike show a lot more -and he really bulked up for MM

    • Lilithcat

      we can’t give a perfect score just because a guy took a bath and got his suit tailored properly.

      Ah, so you don’t grade on a curve!  I wondered.

      I don’t know about her, though.  She looks like she’s been raiding Heidi’s closet: short, tight, shiny.

    • Kiltdntiltd

      Uh,…whatever foundation they slapped on him for these pics is kinda making him look like a matte finish Ken doll.

    • AudreysMom

      I’ve never seen her before so I can’t tell whether the dress is super bulky or she’s just pretty damned fit, in an athletic kind of way. Either way I totally agree that this was the dress to wear not to draw attention away from the celebrity spouse, yet draw positive comments from his fans and fashionistas. 

    • butterflysunita

      I agree with the 9.5 for him–he looks great.  I would give her a lower score though–her skirt is too short, especially considering it’s not her own premiere.  

    • IAmJ

      “to lovingly format Channing Tatum pictures”. Ha! Nicely done.

    • Dan_In_NYC

      My minor quibble about him (and it’s very minor because he tends toward child sizes – so this is a victory overall) is that the collar on that shirt could have been a bit smaller with that tie.  Nit-pick yes, but bravo overall.  Meathead with a little style this time out.

      • yahoo-6O4X7TKRHFOTEII5PJS757B3LA

        Same exact thing that my eye went to.  At first I thought “he should go down half an inch in collar size”… but then, looking closer at the separation between the two sides of it, and the way the check pattern on his shirt diverges slightly from parallel as it goes up, it appears he’s just left his top button undone.  Which is fine, but in that case he needs to snug the tie a skosh.  Consider that nit thoroughly picked.

    • elleg929

      Her skirt needs at least another inch.  It just looks off.

    • TonyGo

      Ugh, I hate her top.  It’s giving here linebacker shoulders, not to mention it’s just plain ugly.  Black plastic pinata. 

      • blogless

        She looks boxy and she is so not boxy.

        She has the most symmetrical beautiful face IMO.

      • gillian holroyd

        Blocky. Stubby. Unflattering.

      • lovelyivy

         I was thinking recycled cheerleader pom-poms, but other than that ITA.

    • Abigail Speltz

      Is there some Hollywood rule that says every woman must own those black Jimmy Choo sandals? They are gorgeous and I considered going without food for a month so I, too, could own a pair, but a little variety would be nice. 

    • mjude

      he is nice!  her “dress” looks like a top only to me

    • j_anson

      D’awww. It’s the girl Cordelia Chase always wanted to be.

      • Sobaika

        instead she gave birth to a six foot tall fully grown black woman. Can’t always get what you want.

        • Kathryn Farrell

          Perfect comment is perfect 😀

    • pattyw

      Don’t get his appeal. Thought hers was a dress, not skirt and top.

      • NC_Meg

        I get how some girls (or guys) could be attracted to him but he doesn’t do anything for me. I will admit this is probably the best I’ve seen him look, though. That’s a great suit.

      • AnaRoW

         He’s very charming if not very attractive.  And he can move.

    • AthenaJ

      Charming Potato

      • formerlyAnon

        Nailed it.

    • MilaXX

      Methinks someone’s crush is making it difficult to be objective. There is nothing outstanding about his look at all. In fact I think he seriously needs to hack away from the fake tan, he’s looking a bit orange to me. A very good effort, but not that close to perfection. I’d give him an 8.5/10
      She is wearing a Gucci shirt, not dress. Again, not awful, but not stellar either. 7.5/10

      Total 8/10

    • Judy_J

      Add a couple of inches onto the hem of that dress, and it would be perfect.

    • Joyce VG

      I’m not sure what all the fuss is about. Meh.

    • introspective

      jenna’s definitely in gyno skirt territory, but im not as offended as i would be were she a taller woman. channing looks good, but is serving up boring banker to me. I guess its better than all the oil-slicked mobster suits his costars had on though.

    • Bree The Vole

      I don’t think it’s the dress that has wrong proportions, but rather the bling on it. Still, she and he both look great.

    • Laurel Lyon

      I thought Channing always made it a little hard for you.

    • Sierra Delta

      Sorry, he’s no Matt Bomer.  *continuing to sigh and fan oneself wistfully*

    • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

      What a lovely couple.  They look great!

    • Mildred20

      Not too interested in either one of them.  The backdrop however, :p~~~~

    • Ajuna Ariel Fenty


      • Friedl Vanluchene

        Totally agree! Don’t like her outfit AT ALL. 

    • Vlasta Bubinka

      Awww, he didn’t get memo that said the boys were going shiny today…

    • Shawn EH

      That kid is loving his moment: good for him!I don’t think you can fake “humble confidence.”

    • Democracy Diva

      No WAY does she deserve a 9 for pulling a slashed-and-sparkly bath towel out of her closet. 

    • shopgirl716

      They both look great and I Lurve her wedding rung.  Somewhat blinding but in a good way.

    • DaveUWSNYC

      Makeup looks a little kalsomined but well-done.

    • Call me Bee

      Mr Tatum doesn’t do a thing for me.  Too football jock looking with that thick neck. 
      But–both he and his missus look very nice here.  Prefectly…nice. 

    • kingderella

      he: gets 0/10 for not being naked or at least shirtless.

      i kid. i agree, he looks pretty much perfect.

    • lordandtaylor

      Like Heidi Klum says, “Short plus shiny equals cheap. Jenna looks like she forgot to put on pants on. While he looks totally dateable. But why is always playing pocket pool on the red carpet?

    • Trisha26

      Short can be tasteful, not sure if this is, that banded bottom makes it look cheap. And I know it’s been years now, but I can’t get over how what I think would make a cute top is now considered a dress. Channing looks tired.

    • clairellis

      I think this is the highest score I’ve ever see you give!! Love it! I try to hate her but she’s adorable so it’s hard. And he’s perfection!!

    • alyce1213

      Agreed on he, near perfection (for a change).
      She — not at all. I don’t like anything she’s wearing, it’s boring and generic (Forever 21-ish), and her hairdo is awful.

    • golspie

      How plastic and sexless they seem together.

    • golspie

      How plastic and sexless they seem together.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      I agree that the proportions of her dress are just slightly off. But they are a very, very attractive couple, and I confess that Channing is starting to grow on me.

    • quiltrx

      He looks good, but I would have expected something a little more fun at your premiere about strippers.

      And she…well, she looks like a stripper.  We can almost see her cooter in the picture with her arm around him.  I can’t imagine (or don’t want to) what happened when she sat in a theatre seat.  She’s very pretty…but so shiny, and her hair’s so tight.  With the dress, it all comes off a bit figure-skater-ish.

    • formerlyAnon

      You are generous! I can’t disagree with your enthusiasm but I’d knock them each down by say, .5 because while they look good, there’s not a lot of pizazz, there.

      Of course, I am resistant to the charms of Channing Tatum, so maybe I’m insufficiently impressed.

    • glennethph

      He was a former stripper.  She’s just dressing up like one to support the movie ;p

    • Bozhi

      She should have done something with her hair.

    • Twinzilla

      He can’t fully open his eyes because he’s stoned or botoxed?

    • guest2visits

      She’s pretty; but wearing a dress thats been hacked.
      He’s looking handsome – but yes, I wish he had maybe a crisp white shirt just for some contrast. Or palest blue.

    • ChaquitaPhilly

      That is not a dress. He looks lovely.

    • Leslie Streeter

      It’s a lovely top. I’m so sad that she spent her pants money on bronzer. So sad.

    • EEKstl

      Handsome couple, but she definitely needed more skirt.

    • Jason M. Galloway

      Miss, I’ll have another margarita.  I’ll just sit here at the Wheel of Fortune slots…

    • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

      Top?  Skirt?  It looks like she’s wearing a shiny sequined top with a band of stretchy fabric at the bottom.

    • Warrior89

      He does nothing for me, but they look cute together.  

    • Bert Keeter

      They look like they ran into each other at event! Her dress makes her look thick through the waist…not exactly what one hopes for!  Top is a bit to covered up…n whats with that slash across the bust…Nyeah!

    • KQ67

      Meh, he doesn’t do a thing for me and I don’t understand his appeal. Is she a celebrity in her own right? I’ve never heard of her before.
