Pairs Division: Tatum and Dewan-Tatum

Posted on July 11, 2012

The Magic Mike poledance continues, rolling its way into Europe and crushing any and all opposition to oiled-up naked movie stars. One does not fight the Magic Mike juggernaut. One succumbs to it.

Now, let’s get all judgey and shit.


Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum attend the “Magic Mike” European Premiere in London. Channing Tatum wore a Giorgio Armani suit and Jenna Dewan-Tatum wore a J. Mendel dress.

HE: Is perfection. Le sigh. And look, we don’t expect you to believe us, but we’re totally talking about his clothes-wearing ability. It’s perhaps a little condescending to look at it this way (as if that ever stopped us from expressing a thought), but a guy like Channing Tatum could easily get away with looking like ass wherever he goes and very few people would call him on it. Good-looking male stars with great bodies and hot careers get to do whatever the hell they want on the red carpet or in public. It’s not fair, but there it is. So when a star like CT actually takes the time and makes the effort to look impeccable, we’re (we kinda hate to say it) more appreciative of it than when someone like, say, Alan Cumming does it.

And he’s rocking a plaid 3-piece. Le sigh. Score: 9.5/10.

SHE: Is still doing that perfect balancing act required of celebrity spouses during their significant other’s latest PR push. She looks pretty and she’s as dressed up as he is, but she’s dressed in such a way as to not take too much focus of him. That’s not easy to do because people are culturally conditioned to look first at the woman in a formally dressed couple. She is always expected to be the one on display. Again, it’s not fair, but there it is. So she chose a dress that’s perfectly on trend and appropriate, but nothing too exciting or out-there from a design perspective. What we’re really responding well to is the color. That’s an interesting shade of red, with the slightest of fuchsia undertones, which somehow manage to make it look summer-y instead of like a New Year’s Eve dress. A pretty and get-it-done kinda  dress with just enough interest to keep it from being boring. But we have to say, the hair is … not good, kittens. We don’t particularly love the Charlie’s Angel’s style blowout on her, but it’s made worse because her extensions are so obvious. It looks like someone clipped two ponytails to her ears. We’re sorry, girl. Everything else was right-on (except for maybe the silly putty pumps) but that hair is not helping. Score: 6/10.

Combined Score: 7.75/10. Let that be a lesson to us all. Sometimes tatty extensions can really fuck up a girl’s score.  Someone should embroider that on a pillow.

Now, we probably shouldn’t post this because there’s no way it’s not going to sound obnoxious, but we ask you to take a step back and ask yourself the following question: If I had the chance to truthfully state the following sentence, wouldn’t I work it into every conversation, whether it was appropriate or not?

You see, darlings, posting will be on a delayed schedule today because we’re having a crazy blogger day that requires us to travel into NYC, meet with our agent to discuss final changes on our book proposal, meet with a well-known fashion editor just because she said “Hey, we should have a meeting,” conduct an interview with Joy Behar for Metrosource magazine, and celebrate Lorenzo’s birthday, all while a reporter for the New York Times follows us around for a profile she’s writing. About us.

No, we can’t believe we typed that sentence either. We always tell people, when they mistakenly assume that we live some sort of glamorous life, “We’re chained to our desks 48 weeks out of the year, like everyone else. It’s just that for those remaining 4 weeks of the year, we get to be Carrie Bradshaw.” Today’s a Carrie day.

But we WILL be posting, dolls. We’d never let our Precious Unborn Fawns down.

    J’adore you fabulous gentlemen! Happy Birthday Lorenzo!!!

    • Melvis Velour

      Sana Hilwa (HBD in Arabic) Lorenzo!!!

  • Though I am not on The Channing Tatum Love Train, I can see that he’s perfectly turned out here. And that is not an easy suit to pull off. Props to him for that.

    Hate her shoes, especially for the huge blue pulsing vein that is happening caused she’s squeezed into them.
    Also, and perhaps most importantly. Happy Birthday Lorenzo! And finally, you guys deserve every good thing happening to you!

    • Spicytomato1

      I assumed that blue pulsing vein was a tattoo when I first skimmed over the image but now that I go back and examine it more closely, I think you’re right. Ew!

    • VanessaDK

      It’s not a tattoo? Scary–

      Have a great Carrie day TLo!!!!!

    •  It is a tattoo, I just Googled it. It’s some kind of honeymoon tattoo, and supposedly Channing has one that matches on his foot. There’s a picture of it on this website, if you scroll down a bit

    •  I tried to post a link to a picture of the tattoo on her foot, but I guess the spammers have made it so that posts with links have to be approved. Damn spammers. Anyway, it is in fact a tattoo and not a vein.

      • Thanks for the confirmation, MandyJane.  Consider my quibble officially withdrawn!

        • Mayhap you could quibble that she chose a tattoo for her foot that looks like a huge, blue, pulsating vein?

          •  Because, as we all know, with ink, placement is nearly everything.

          •  Channing supposedly has the exact same tattoo on his foot! Supposed to be some kind of honeymoon tattoo.

            Still, those shoes are ugly. Once T&Lo named them silly putty shoes, I can’t see anything else when I look at them.

          •  Like a long time ago, when a fad occurred for bejeweled sandals with lots of colors of stones on them so they could, “go with anything”, the silly putty shoes, in an attempt to work with everything, really don’t quite work with anything.

          • kimmeister

            Amen!  Any tat that could be mistaken for a mutant body part is a bad tat.

          • I’m with you on this one. Someone should introduce her to concealer

    • ballerinawithagun

      He doesn’t do it for me either.

      • ccinnc

         I just watched 21 Jump Street with my (adult) children and suddenly I think he’s adorable.  Had never liked him before. He’s not taking himself as seriously as he seemed to years ago and has great comic timing.

        • Izandra

          Same here.  I thought he was a meathead until I saw 21 Jump Street, and did a complete 180 after almost passing out in the theater from his sheer hotness.  I’m beginning to think his charisma doesn’t come out until he moves.  I still don’t like his still photos.

      • butterflysunita

        He did nothing for me until I saw “Magic Mike”.  Now….well, yum.  
        More importantly, congrats TLo!

    • Little_Olive

      Agree on a counts! Happy Bday Lo! Have a great NY celebration. 

  • Everything y’all said. Also, her dress could be hemmed.

    The pic of CT standing next to the cardboard cutout of himself is hysterical.

    Congrats on the book proposal AND happy birthday Lorenzo!

    • Catiline

      Yes!  The pictures of SeriousFace!Tatum standing right next to StripperFace!Tatum’s picture have made me laugh myself silly.

    •  The contrast of the amount of clothing made me laugh. To quote Joey Tribianni, “Could [he] BE wearing any more clothes?”

      • Sara LaBatt

        This made me think of the episode where Joey put on all of Chandler’s clothes.  And that made me smile, so thanks for that!

        As for CT and the Mrs., I think they look great.  I was never into CT but I saw the movie and I have to say now I see the appeal a little.  Probably because I know what is lurking under that 3 piece suit – lots of abs and the like.  Yum.  But I do very much like this suit on him and I love a plaid suit on the right guy.  As for her, she looks good but the dress seems too long, or too short.  Not that I want it super short, but the length just seems awkward to me.

        Congrats on your Carrie day and happy birthday to Lo!  Hope you have a wonderful day.

  • wisenhar

    Major kudos TLO!  All PUFs know you deserve it!

  • Allyson Wells

    Wow, how exciting! Congrats to you both. I can’t wait to read the New York Times profile. Happy Birthday, Lorenzo! 

  • Hermione_Granger

    Happy birthday, Lo! All of us bitter kittens love you both and are proud of our daddies.

  • AuntieAnonny

    I’m not sure that I like patterns on him, but you’re right that it is to be appreciated.

    EDIT: I’m so happy to hear about your successes, you two are awesome.

  • Those Pigalle shoes are all the rage, apparently.

  • “Today’s a Carrie day” is a sentence I will try to get into as many conversations as possible:)

    Happy Birthday Lorenzo!

    • I think you meant to say “Today’s a TLo day”. 😉

  • Spicytomato1

    Enjoy your Carrie day, I can’t think of one that’s more well-deserved. And happy birthday Lorenzo…may all your wishes come true.

    As for Charming Potato, he really does pull of the suit amazingly well. And he manages to do it in a more understated way than Will Smith did recently, which I admire.

    • twocee

       “Charming Potato!”  Thank you for my morning laugh!

  • MilaXX

    KUDOS to you both! Go have a Carrie day in NYC. we’ll wait while you get your George & Weezy on.

  • Frank_821

    Yes CT is excellent and dapper

    I squeal in delight at a Tlo book and Tlo PR and Tlo related paparrazzi

    Never mind us unborn fawns. we will manage. enjoy yourself pretending to be SJP

  • nannypoo

    He looks great. She is a small woman swimming in too much dress and too much hair. 

    Very happy for you both. I hope you tell us all about your big day in excruciating detail. We love to live vicariously.

  • MilaXX

    Though I am not on The Channing Tatum Love Train, I can see that he’s
    perfectly turned out here. And that is not an easy suit to pull off.
    Props to him for that.

    Agreed he is not my cuppa, but he does look good here. She is doing the stand by your man thing so I won’t quibble too much about her look.

    •  I’ve been quoted!

      • MilaXX

         for some reason it posted solo instead of under your comment.

        •  I have noticed disqus getting a bit wonky of late.

  • congratulations, To Lo!! WERQ.

  • NurseEllen

    If I weren’t already a NYT subscriber, this would make me do it.  What wonderful sense they have to do a profile on you guys!  And, Happy Birthday Lorenzo!!  Have a great day & let us all know about it.

    Oh, and regarding Channing and the Mrs.—I don’t mind the styling either but I’ve never understood why someone would CHOOSE to have a zigzag part in her hair.  Is her scalp so beautiful it needs to be noticed?

  • Who cares about those Tatums? Bring on the NYT article and the book, stat! And happiest of birthdays to Lo. YAY!

  • jmorino08

    I think you dinged her a little much for the hair. It is ridiculous, no doubt, but maybe 8/10 bad because everything else is so good.

    But my favorite part is the double photo bomb by both the woman in glasses and the CT cut out! That he can stand there with a straight face while his alter ego stands so cheesily by is quite impressive.

    Also, good on you guys! Enjoy your Carrie Bradshaw day! You deserve it! And Happy Birthday Lorenzo!!!

  • Vanja

    Channing does absolutely nothing for me and the suit is a bit too wrinkly for my taste.

    Embrace that Carrie day and enjoy it to the max and Happy Birthday to you, Lorenzo!

  • mcr7833

    Hold the phone! A book proposal? A book? By Tom and Lorenzo? *Swoon* As a long-time reader of this blog (started reading it not too long after you started and fell in love with it from the first post) and first-time commenter, I am so happy to hear about your success and absolutely thrilled by the prospect of you two writing a book. Go enjoy your Carrie day! And happy birthday Lorenzo!

  • VioletFem

    Congratulations on the the book proposal and the NY Times profile! It most be so satisfying to see all your hard work be recognized in such a high profile magazine. I can’t wait to read both. Also, Happy Birthday Lorenzo!

  • Ryan Williamson

    He really needs a better tie, that one doesn’t go with a plaid suit at all. Preferably one with some contrast. Honestly he looks boring as shit. I wish male stars could wear something interesting, but I think they’re too afraid of looking gay.

  • rougeort

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY LORENZO! We love you guys!

    Another comment… YOU GUYS ARE WRITING A BOOK!?!?!? Why have no PUFs cared to share this with me? I am SO GETTING a copy the first day it’s in stores.

  • I didn’t even notice her at first sight! Such is the power of CT’s charm. Anyway, I really like them as a couple and I think they look good together but I don’t like her dress. The colour seems a bit washed out and the design is so done! She is such a beautiful lady she deserves better.

    • Right? I was all, “There’s a Mrs. Tatum?  Does not compute!”

  • Have a tremendously fabulous day! Happy Birthday Lorenzo!

  • hmariec19

    You go on and enjoy your Carrie Bradshaw Day boys! And Happy Birthday Lo!

  • T Lo book proposal – that’s all I will remember from this post.  Yay!

  • claudemtl777

    Congrats on all the good things happening…all well deserved…
    Happy B’day to Lorenzo

  • ccm800

    Have fun! Happy Birthday Lorenzo! And man do I hate her damn dress. 

  • You boys enjoy your Carrie Bradshaw day, which in your case — unlike hers — is totally earned and well-deserved.

  • The length of the dress is so wrong! It makes her look positively stumpy!

  • SewingSiren

    Congratulations on all your well earned success! I cannot wait for the book. What a great birthday present to meet with the editor of a magazine. I hope it’s Nina, I know she is Lorenzo’s favorite.

  • Oh, I hope your Carrie Bradshaw day is fabulous. Also, happy birthday Lorenzo! 

  • I’m glad you’re having a Carrie day today.  You deserve more of them, and you deserve them more than most.  Happiest of Birthdays to Lo & a fabulous day to you both!  Your desk-chaining makes all of our days considerably brighter! <3

  • JaneDC

    I always get Channing Tatum’s name confused and think it’s Tatum Channing, because of Tatum O’Neil. A friend of mine refers to him as Changing Table. At any rate, I love his look of great gravitas as he hypes a movie about male strippers.

    And if was about to have the day your having, I would stop total strangers on the street to tell them! Mazel tov, and happy birthday, Lorenzo!

  • Lilithcat

    Happy birthday, Lorenzo!  Have a glass of champagne on me.  (There’s an extra so you can share with Tom.)

    I love your crazy blogger day.  (I refuse to call it a “Carrie” day – not after that obnoxious “Carrie Bradshaw as role model for female journalists” article in the Huffington Post!)  Can’t wait for the NYT article.  Don’t apologize for the good things happening in your life.  You’ve worked hard for them.  We’re so proud of you.  The bitter kittens are kvelling!   

    • Maddie_Faddenoid

      If you’re talking about the article titled ‘A Struggle of No Struggles’ – I just yelled ‘Oh, f*** you!’ at my laptop while reading it.

      • Lilithcat

        That’s the one.  

  • He looks fantastic. I’ve recently gained an appreciation of him after watching 21 Jump Street (dude is actually pretty funny). Magic Mike I’ll rent when the fiance is out with his buddies. 

    Her dress is fine, but the length seems off.

  • LinXGUA

    Good for you! Congrats guys!

  • Lorenzo and I share a birthday.:-)  I think that makes me twice as fabulous! Happy Birthday, Lo and Happy *We are Fabulous* day to you both!

  • IAmJ

    Exciting stuff, you guys! You deserve all this and more. Enjoy your Carrie day!!!

  • angela rose

     Is it weird that I get so excited about your success?  I mean, we don’t ACTUALLY know each other, but I feel as if we do.  You go work that two-guys-being-toasted-by-the-new-york-fabulous-shit darlings!  Your unborn fawns/emmas/bitter kittens will wait patiently for the download!!! XO!

  • Nariya

    Happy birthday, Lo! But I think Tatum looks like a large brick. Still, kudos for the tailoring and the plaid.

  • Hiptobesquare

    Wow!  What a day!  As I sit here, chained to my laptop, I am filled with envy.  (You know you want it–you KNOW you do!)

    But who has earned it more than you guys?  Dying to know who the fashion editor is–thought it might be Joe Zee, but you said “she.”  

    Have a fabulous day, guys, and happy birthday, Lo!

  • Le_Sigh

    Carrie day or not, you two are utterly, unequivocally, FABULOUS.  Happy Birthday Lorenzo!!!!!

  • 3boysful

    Happy birthday, Lo!  Have a wonderful time in NYC.  We can’t wait to read all about it.   Will we get a “Pairs Division” of you two to critique?  😉

  • Jessi03

    Hooray for you guys!  Happy Birthday, Lo!  So much excitement!

  • Sobaika


  • DinaSews

    WOW! What a great way to spend your birthday!!!!  Better than any spa day.  Happy, happy birthday.  Enjoy your big day.

  • I also don’t like her makeup. Shine during the holidays looks magical. Shine during the summer looks like the AC broke. And the color is too monotone, weirdly even, possibly borg-ish.

    Happy Birthday, Lorenzo! Congrats to you both! Enjoy your glamday

  • Catiline

    Have an awesome Carrie Bradshaw day, and happy birthday Lorenzo!

  • uprightcitizen

    Exactly right. The hair was kinda “Toddlers & Tiaras” to begin with (it’s the weight of the first layer before it flips away from the face … too heavy, right?), but in the salon, they should have taken a couple of flash photos of her. Then maybe they would have seen how those lighter pieces they added lit up like Christmas trees.

    Love his suit, but I think a slightly slimmer tie would have made it more chic. This one looks neither here nor there and the knot is wide and pulling. Wouldn’t a smaller knot (skinnier tie) have made the whole thing look more crisp? His neck is seriously enormous. He must have to have his shirts custom-made (even a slim fit one big enough for his neck would be huge overall). so if I were designing them, I’d go for less of a spread collar, have a longer, more pointed shape instead. The spread collar just makes his neck look thicker. That thing is as wide as his entire head.

    • uprightcitizen

       Oh, and totally missed the book/birthday/Carrie Bradshaw day stuff by reading this on my phone. That’s fantastic. And well-deserved. Be sure to write about it later, using only simple questions that contain seriously bad puns, while you stare out the window and dab on lip gloss. And use the word “meanwhile” a lot. Have fun!

  • Dan_In_NYC

    You are always delightfully opinionated, but congrats to you on what sounds like it will be an extra FABULOUS day.  Sending good vibes from the financial district! NYC will be a bit sassier today with you two around…

    OH, CT looks great when he wears clothes that fit him.  I still think he looks like a meathead, but I can’t hate too much because the opening shot in Magic Mike was… um… his assets are just… well… round and delightful.

  • Jangle57

    Congratulations and Happy Birthday!  I thought he looked great; her, not so much.  I didn’t catch the extensions, I guess I was too busy wondering if the top of her dress was going to fall down cause it sure looks like it’s going to fall any minute.  Hate the shoes.

  • Judy_S

    Happy Birthday, Uncle Carrie!

  • schadenfreudelicious

    He’s a good looking guy who’s looks do nothing for me, and her hair is abysmal, looks like ombre clip in’s…a most happy of birthdays Lorenzo, and major congrats, it could not happen to two more fabulous men!

  • I think her dress is all wrong for her and then with the patent nude pump.  it’s just not working for her. He is an attractive man, in a very good suit. Can’t hate on that. 

  • queeniethebold

    Only a very occasional commenter here, but an absolutely avid reader (multiple times every day!). I remember when you first started blogging, with Project Rungay, and I wrote a fan email to you. And you responded! (Then someone popped my teetiny little balloon of glee by saying, “Oh, they send that canned response to everyone.” But I didn’t care!) This is the best and smartest blog there is. Love reading you, love learning all sorts of stuff (including the highly refined art of snarking deliciously), really love your take on whatever it is you choose to write about, including your incredibly thoughtful and incisive television reviews.

    So, you know, this is just to say that I don’t much care about this Tatum couple but am very happy indeed that so many excellent things are coming your way. Cannot WAIT for your book, or for the Times profile; please let us know when the latter runs!

    Bonne Anniversaire, Lo!

  • GillianHolroyd

    It kind of misses the point of wearing nude heels to make your legs look longer if your dress hem is too long. Also *patent* nude, wtf? The color of the dress is lovely though.

  • Laurie Schafer

    Wow! Even Sheila E. would agree, that is the glamorous life, if only for a day! Happy Birthday Lorenzo! Tell us about the birthday meal as well.

  • CheriCPat

    Why didn’t Channing get a 10?  I don’t think he’s that cute (in the face), but he is dressed perfectly, not a complaint or even a hint of one.  What does it take to get a 10?

  • Anathema_Device

    Have a fabulous day being fabulous. You more than deserve it.

    Her dress is too long.

    • PinkLemon

       it IS too long, for her stature. i also have qualms with the part in her hair…’s not helping her face.

  • Hair extensions?  Are you sure??  I have the under-wavy phenomenon sometimes, too.  Just sayin’.

    You guys slay me.  Enjoy your Carrie Bradshawness today, congratulations, and happy day!

  • gabbilevy

    Awww have a FANTASTIC day you guys! That sounds amazing–can’t wait for the NYT profile. Happy birthday, Lo!

    Tatum is hot. I’m not sure I got the appeal, but then I saw Magic Mike… not a *great* movie, but the man has moves.

  • Laurie Schafer

    Wow! Even Sheila E. would agree, that is the glamorous life, if only for a day! Happy Birthday Lorenzo!

  • Hetha Innis

    Wonderful!!! I love love love you guys. You’ve been a bright spot for me for YEARS in an otherwise tough stay at home mom to a special needs kiddo lifestyle. So happy for your success! And Happy Birthday Lorenzo! I hope it’s not too hot in the city for you two today. xo

  • Laurie Schafer

    Even Sheila E. would agree, that is the glamorous life, if only for a day! Happy Birthday Lorenzo! Tell us about the birthday meal as well.

  • gsk241

    TLo, I’ve been a fan since literally your first post on PRGay, and I’m so happy and proud of the success you have earned.  Whether it lasts 15 minutes or 15 years, you should enjoy every moment of it.  Now WERQ!

  • jennmarie19

    That oh-so-truthful sentence made my day! You gents deserve every bit of success you’ve achieved and then some! Happy birthday to Lorenzo and have a wonderful day of fabulosity!

    • PinkLemon

       srsly, if anyone deserves it it’s them.

  • ballerinawithagun

    Even Sheila E. would agree, that is the glamorous life, if only for a day! Happy Birthday Lorenzo! Tell us about your birthday meal.

  • Happy birthday, Lo!  I just love you guys, and it makes me very happy that a couple of nice guys like you fell (due to competence and hilarity and hard work, I know) into this fabulous lifestyle.  Four weeks of it, anyway.  Have a gorgeous, glamorous day!

    Topically, is Channing looking smarter, or is it just that I see him that way because (rumor has it) he is actually reasonably intelligent?

  • meowing

    Best wishes for the best birthday ever, Lorenzo!  Ya’ll deserve your Carrie time, ’cause you’re terrific to us Fawning Kittens.

  • Forgiven boys because, #1, you deserve all the fabulosity that comes in your life, and #2, you gave us this Le sigh worthy picture of Channing Tatum, who, after seeing Magic Mike, I’m a big fan of. 🙂

  • Congrats to you, gentlemen. Well deserved. I’m looking forward to the feature and the book.

  • PinkLemon

    excitiiiiiing!!! happy birthday, Lorenzo!!!!

  • Love you guys.. Happy Birthday, and congrats on all the exciting stuff coming your way!

  • HobbitGirl

    Here’s hoping CT helps bring back the Roger Sterling look. I love a man in a crisp three-piece suit.

  • librarygrrl64

    Her outfit could have used a metallic sandal. Are celebs now allergic to showing some foot-skin in the summer? Have all of the pedicurists in LA gone on strike?

    Good luck in NYC, guys! Enjoy. 🙂

  • lesmaha

    Congratulations on your Carrie Bradshaw day, T and Lo!! Well deserved!!  Have fun! And Happy Birthday, Lo!

  • minnye

    Congratulations! & HB Lorenzo.

  • sashaychante

    OK…call me oblivious, I thought her hair was colored this way and didn’t realized she was wearing extensions.  Those extensions really are a bad match.  Didn’t anyone color match them in daylight?  Mr. Tatum…yummm!

    Excited about the forthcoming book…yay!

  • carolynmo

    Happy birthday, Lorenzo. It sounds like it will be a terrific day. Enjoy!

  • Happy Birthday Lorenzo! And I hope you two have the most fabulous day! There’s just this one thing… are you really OK with the length of Mrs. Tatum’s dress? It’s hitting the widest part of her calf. Really? I think you got some birthday cake in your eye. 

  • Joyce VG

    Le Sigh FOR T LO!  Congrats you two! Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

  • Joyce VG

    Happy Birthday Lorenzo!

  • jcolli69

    TLo, you’re crazy. Her hair is shiny, bouncy and awesome. I could do without the two tone, but I don’t think its as bad as you make it out to be. Nonetheless, hope you have an amazing day jetting around being the fabulous fashion bloggers you are. Happy Birthday Lorenzo!!!!!

  • annrr

    Have a great Carrie Day and a better BIrthday! xo THE sentence made me proud to be an Unborn Fawn. I’ll be patiently waiting for my Dallas recap tho 😉 loved the last ep.

  • Enjoy your day. Congrats on your amazing achievements!

  • Happy b-day lorenzo.

    the Chan-Man looks great but for god’s sake, get the hands out of the pockets. Every recent shot of him depicts a guy playing pocket pool.

    And Channing remember these words…YOU ARE NEVER FULLY DRESSED WITHOUT A SMILE.

  • Happy birthday, Lo! Have a fabulous time in the city!

  • jw_ny

    Enjoy your Carrie B day!  hope your shoes are fabulous! 😉

    Happy B-day Lo! 🙂

    <3 Channing (but refuse to see the movie)…he looks quite dapper however I'm not a fan of the tie he chose and may have preferred a solid vest.  minor quibbles.

    She…looks ridiculous with those extensions.  Her hair stylist should have his gay card taken away! shame! 😉

  • TheOriginalLulu

    Happy Birthday Lorenzo! Enjoy your Carrie day! 🙂

  • j_anson

    Happy birthday! Totally agreed on Channing Tatum – it’s sweet that he makes an effort. I still find him fundamentally uninteresting, but fundamentally uninteresting and sweet is a big step up from fundamentally uninteresting and douche-y.

  • Lynn Chock

    Congrats!! You guys deserve it. Love reading the site.

  • TVKimmy

    Enjoy and rock that glamorous life! 😀

  • TomBord

    Don’t forget to squeal like a pig, Carrie Style !! Happy Birthday and have a awesome NYC b boyday.

  • DaveUWSNYC

    Agents, editors, interviews, celebrities…and a birthday to boot (Happy Birthday Lorenzo!) – yet you worry for us. We could not love you more, gentlemen! 

  • Congratulations, guys on all of the great things that are happening!! You two definitely deserve it. Happy Birthday, Lorenzo!!
    Channing is looking good here. And slightly off topic (but staying with the Magic Mike cast) did anyone see the first 10 minutes of White Collar last night? Yum!

  • DaveUWSNYC

    Agents, book proposals, editors, interviews, and a birthday celebration to boot (Happy Birthday Lorenzo!) – yet you worry for your unborn fawns and bitter kittens. We could not love you more, gentlemen!

  • BazoDee

    Happy Birthday!!!!

    I don’t reallt like CT -but daym he looks perfect here. Maybe Matt Bomer gave him some tips on set. 

  • guest2visits

    OBNOXIOUS ALERT! – no, really; it sounds wonderful.  Wishing you much success; in all your endeavors – and Happy Birthday!
    Just get back to work as soon as possible! – We are needy addicts and we have you to blame.

    Agree about your score; especially regarding the shoes and the hair extensions.

  • julnyes

    Agree on all points, though I would inch her up to 7 just because the hair and shoes are off, but not horrendous.

    Have fun on your Carrie Day and Happy Birthday Lorenzo!

  • Larkin21

    Congrats on the success!! well earned & deserved.  And btw-  “Let that be a lesson to us all. Sometimes tatty extensions can really fuck up a girl’s score.” should be a mantra! or a billboard you see at across SoCal!  Hahaha!! LOVE IT!! 

  • aristida_girl

  • TieDye64

    Happy Birthday Lorenzo! And congrats to you both on the new happenings. You guys rock! xo

    BTW Mr. Tatum really does look perfect. I’m impressed.

  • Pennymac

    There’s nothing obnoxious about sharing your success with your faithful Bitter Kittens! Happy birthday, Lorenzo! Enjoy what sounds like a fabulously glamorous Carrie Bradshaw day. Eat carbs!

  • The woman peeking from the side in the first photo didn’t know she would be lucky enough to be on TLo! 

  • And that is how you wear a plaid suit, children.

  • altalinda

    Hooray for you!

    Congratulations! And happy birthday! I’m looking forward to reading the article! Sorry about all the exclamation points.

    Happy Birthday Lorenzo!!!

    Birthday good wishes, Lorenzo! Though I think you get an extra birthday celebration – the lazy, lounge around the house and maybe go out to brunch, or, well, dinner if you can’t decide about brunch until it’s already 2 p.m kind of birthday celebration.

    Because however great today’s celebration is, it’s just one more event in a pretty full day!

    And: YAY for you guys!!! Benjamin Franklin (to choose a Philly-appropriate forbear) would be proud of what hard work and smart thinking and [so far as one can tell from the other side of the Internet] trying to be decent people even when temptation is strong has accomplished.

    And we promise not to believe anything unflattering or mean the New York Times prints. Because those journalists, they often don’t get it quite right, do they?

    P.S. Clothes: You’re right about him.  Her: I assumed the hair was intentional (I mean, when dark roots and zig zag parts are intentional styles, how’s an old dinosaur to tell when something is a mistake?), but I’d take off a little for the length her skirt. Not knowing how sturdy her calves are or where their widest point is, I can’t say how much it should be shortened, but I think it should be shortened an inch or so.

    Him: 9.5/10 stands. Her: I’d have given an 8/10, maybe a little grade inflation for the celebrity spouse balancing act. If the hair is a boo-boo, I’d slide it to 6.5/10, I think 6/10 is a little harsh. 

    Combined score: for optimists: 8.75/10, for pessimists: 8/10.

  • enjoy your day of stardom and fabulosity!  hope you get a cupcake!

    i think this couple is so pretty.  nicely, thoughtfully dressed.  seems even more impressive considering it’s all somehow a bit unexpected, so good for them.

  • He just doesn’t do it for me, so consider it the truth when I say that suit got WORN.  Great red carpet look.  (And Happy birthday, Lo!)

  • dress_up_doll

    Although he looks great, he just doesn’t do it for me. Your scores are deadon. Happy, happy birthday, Lorenzo! Have a sensational day of work and celebration!

  • I’m not a Charming Potato fan, but he looks near impeccable here. So bravo to him.

    And you guys! Fashionista stars, you are! Happy birthday, Lorenzo, and I hope you’re both having a fabu day. No one deserves it more.

  • DCSheehan

    Calling a foul on the Tatum score. The three piece ain’t his look, makes him too stout. And the shirt and tie are battling the grey plaid – what colour is that shirt, unlaundered white? Also, hands in fucking pockets!

    What is it about this guy? He’s good looking, but so is most of Hollywood. I don’t get it. And i should. He’s totally my type and yet he leaves me cold.

  • His clothes are fantastic.  But would it kill him to smile?  Happy birthday, Lorenzo!

  • miagain

    I mirror what everyone has surely been saying… woweeee, and mighty big congratulations on your fabulous day!!  You both deserve it, and then some!  I read a fair amount of blogs, and know of no other that updates posts as often as you do.  They are always fresh, funny and insightful.  How would I have ever understood Lost, much less started even started watching Mad Men if it hadn’t been for you two.  
    You EARNED your Carrie day!!

  • Kate4queen

    I can almost forgive him for ruining one of my favorite books ever, The Eagle of the Ninth in that terrible, woeful movie adaptation.

  • Candice Richardson

    Happy Birthday Lorenzo!!! Cancers rock!

  • rkdgal

    Congrats, gents; you deserve all the success and attention you’re getting!  What a great birthday present for Lorenzo 🙂

  • unbornfawn

    Happy Birthday Lorenzo! Great timing for your Carrie Bradshaw day! Enjoy every minute of it!

    Channing looks fabulous and I give him credit for how much effort he put into his look. But would it kill him to smile? His posture and facial expressions are coming off really douche-y. And I don’t have any feelings about him one way or the other.

  • Zippypie

    Happy Birthday, Lo!!!  Sounds like you’ll have a fab day being glamorous.  Live it!

    I’m not a big fan of Charming Potato but he looks perfect here.  I LOVE the plaid 3-piece suit.  Love it.  She – besides the bad hair, that dress is just too damn big and too long.  Right above the knee would have worked.  And her boobs look swallowed in folds.  She a bitty thing and needs to remember proportion.

  • bellafigura1

    You’ve earned it all!   Have a blast, NYC weather is sublime at the moment.

  • Aurumgirl

    Happy Birthday Lorenzo!  And so much joy from all your hard-earned success!

  • Wendi126

    I’m kvelling for you two! What a great day and all the good shit happening for you both. Love it

  • Judih1

    Happy birthday Lorenzo – what a great way to celebrate – having a Carrie Day with your spouse by your side to enjoy it with you. Can’t wait to read the NY Times review article about you

  • Proportion is all wrong  on her

  • JackieOBlue

    So exciting all that you have going on TLo.  Well deserved!  And, Happy Birthday to Lorenzo; what a way to celebrate.

  • MissAnnieRN

    If you are meeting with Anna Wintour I will lose my fucking shit. But I wonder if it’s Nina… You will be sharing this info when the time is right? Because I live vicariously through you guys. 2 regular dudes gifted at writing and connecting to their audience who have moved from a blogspot blog about a bravo reality show to attending NYFW, being interviewed all over the place, writing books, meetin with fashion editors, being on TV. It’s the American dream, boys. So exciting! Must be dizzying. Do you have to pinch yourselves sometimes? T pinch Lo for me on his birthday 😉

  • kikisayshi

    He is so yummy.

  • turtleemily

    I don’t hate the silly putty pumps here since I think they create the illusion of skin where the length of that dress is usually stumpifying.

  • kjthorp

    Congratulations!!! So happy that you two are doing so well!
    Happy Birthday Lo!! Enjoy!!


  • Linderella

    Agree agree agree, except:  he needs to get his damn hand(s) out of his pocket(s).  Why isn’t there someone, somewhere to give men on the RC that one little piece of sage advice?
