Style File: Jenna Dewan-Tatum Does the Upfronts

Posted on May 16, 2017

Miss Jenna’s got her new dancing show to promote, which means it’s time to break out the gams and show them off on the red carpet, arwerite?

Apparently not.


Sure, this is pretty much exactly what you’d expect a dancer to wear in order to promote her dancing. It’s the kind of dress you’d see lady hoofers wear in old musicals; just demure enough to look like a normal dress when she’s standing still, with a slit up the wazoo that she can break out during the major moves. We almost want to see her do a number in this dress.

But apparently, we’re being too narrow in our thinking on lady hoofer style:


Jenna Dewan-Tatum of “World of Dance” attends the Entertainment Weekly and People’s Upfronts Party presented by Netflix and Terra Chips at Second Floor in New York City in Josie Natori.

Hello, 1998! It’s been a while.

It’s a shame she’s standing against a black backdrop, because most of this outfit disappears in pictures. Clearly, we were wrong about dancing ladies and the requirement that they show off their legs at every opportunity. Still, the pants don’t really bother us here. The lingerie and the choker? Yes. The pants? Not really.
