Sin City got extra decadent on Friday when Jenna Dewan Tatum stepped out for opening night of ‘Magic Mike Live Las Vegas’ in a black, long-sleeved mesh mini dress. The dress fit the dancer/actress like a second skin, while strategically placed panels were the only things preventing the star from being totally stripped down.
The revealing frock is from designer Julien Macdonald’s fall 2017 collection, which premiered at Macdonald’s Autumn/Winter ’17 show at Goldsmiths Hall during London Fashion Week. At the show, model Winnie Harlow also walked a floor-length version of the dress down the runway. Macdonald, whose aesthetic includes many sheer, structured looks, has dressed many other celebrities, including Beyonce, Gisele Bundchen, and Gwen Stefani.
Dewan Tatum accessorized with delicate strappy sandals and a few rings and wore her dark brown, shoulder-length tresses loose and tousled. Her eyes were outlined in smoky black to complement her smoldering look. The beauty’s best accessory, though, was her strong, ultra-toned physique, which the 36-year-old mom attributes to 25 years of dancing, Pilates workouts, clean eating, and copious amount of crunches.
Leading up the event, she teased the racy number on Snapchat in a series of videos featuring her equally smoldering husband, Channing Tatum, who created and co-directed the show. It’s based on his 2012 film, ‘Magic Mike,’ which in turn in based on Tatum’s real-life experience as a male stripper, prior to his fame.
Of course, Tatum dressed to impress, too. The actor, also 36, who met his wife in 2005 when both starred in the film Step Up, donned a dapper maroon suit to his red carpet debut. The well-tailored outfit included a matching lace-up brogues, a button-down vest, and playful patterned tie. The pair looked perfect together, but that’s nothing new.
The Tatums have heated up many a red carpet during their decade-plus-long relationship. Some of their most sizzling moments include the 2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party, where Tatum sported a classic tux while Dewan Tatum dropped jaws in a couture Zuhair Murad gown with a halter neck and thigh-high slit, and the Los Angeles premiere of Tatum’s film The Hateful Eight, directed by Quentin Tarantino, where Dewan Tatum rocked a sheer, structured Marchesa gown from the label’s spring 2016 collection and her husband looked handsome in a blue suit.
While the Tatums looked impeccable at the premiere, they were joined by a series of sizzling celebs who gave them a run for their single dollar bills. Actress Jillian Bell arrived in black cigarette pants and a black-and-white striped crop top, which she paired with sparkling silver pumps. Cody Horn let her own toned stems take center stage in peacock blue velvet hot pants and a matching blazer, while Emmanuelle Chriqui showed up in a slinky black gown with an ultra-plunging neckline that she adorned with layers of delicate necklaces.
Tatum was pumped to promote his latest endeavor, posting a behind-the-scenes shot of the show’s stars in their male-stripper personas to Instagram and writing, “It’s. About. To. Go. Down. Tonight. @magicmikelive.” According to its official website, “The show will recreate the mythical Club Domina as a cabaret nightclub space inside the Hard Rock Hotel that is being fully redesigned to capture the magnetism of the Magic Mike franchise.”
Magic Mike Live — “a sizzling 360 degree dance and acrobatic strip tease” choreographed by the franchise’s own Alison Faulk and starring 13 chiseled performers — will take residence in Vegas’ famed Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. It will take place twice a day, with an “early show” at 7:30pm and a “late show” at 10pm.
At the end of the premiere, Tatum took to Instagram again to express his gratitude to the team who made his dream a reality. He posted a picture of incredibly well-heeled group looking proud and ecstatic, and captioned it, “Sending my love to this family you see here. There’s no amount of thank you’s that could cover the gratitude I have for their faith and hard work. We did the damn thing!!”.
