When I thumb through old photos of myself, I experience frequent LOL or cringe moments seeing some of my past outfit choices. But, I don't think Jenna Dewan has that problem—at least not where the red carpet is concerned. She knows what she likes (a gown that features at least one of the following: cutouts, a plunging neckline, or a thigh-high slit) and what looks amazing on her petite frame. Her style has always managed to stay fashionably sexy, from the body-con mini dresses of the 2000s to the cutout gowns of 2019. Consider the photos ahead as evidence of Dewan's on point style.
Dewan's style gets more sultry every year. She arrived to the Golden Globes after-party in an Azzaro gown with a side-baring cutout and thigh-high slit. She wore a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti heels and Norman Silverman jewelry.
For the World of Dance red carpet event, Dewan went for an edgy skirt and bralette outfit. The pieces highlighted her athletic dancer frame.
At the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party, Dewan stole the spotlight in this body-hugging maroon dress from Pamella Roland. The side slit showed off her leg and metallic Casadei shoes, which matched in color to the bedazzled beading on her gown.
Dewan has a petite frame, so short dresses look amazing on her. She chose this semi-naked look for the NBCUniversal upfront presentation in NYC.
Dewan wore a colorful Zuhair Murad embroidered gown to the St. Jude Hope & Heritage Gala, where she was honored with a "Humanitarian of The Year" award. A Plunging neckline is a detail the star doesn't shy away from.
Surprise: this strapless jumpsuit is actually a bustier and pants set by Reem Acra. Dewan wore it for a Baby2Baby Gala in California. It was the perfect look to show off her shoulders and arms.
Dewan isn't strictly an all-dresses type of gal. She loves a jumpsuit just as much as the next person and wore this keyhole cutout one-piece to the 28th Annual EMA Awards Ceremony in Beverly Hills, California.
Dewan mastered the whole daytime lingerie look at an event in New York City. She paired a bra-like lace top with wide-leg pants.
In one of her most risqué dresses to date, Dewan arrived to the world premiere of Kingsman: The Golden Circle in a strapless Zac Posen dress with completely sheer sides.
You can always count on Dewan to wear the sexiest dress on any red carpet. Case in point: this Julien MacDonald gown with Giuseppe Zanotti heels.
The star wore a sweet floral pink dress from Marchesa to the fifth annual Baby2Baby Gala in 2016. It seems this year she had an affinity for strapless gowns and embraced that thigh-high slit look.
Dewan attended the 2016 Golden Globe Awards in a Zuhair Murad Couture dress and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry. Instead of a body-con dress, the star floated down the red carpet in a gorgeous navy ball gown.
The star attended the first annual Marie Claire Young Women's Honors in a sparkly silver dress. It was elegant, glamorous, and slightly more modest than her previous outfit choices.
The star loves going with a halter-neck or strapless gown for the red carpet. For the premiere of Entourage, Dewan went for the latter in a structural minidress.
Unlike her then-husband Channing Tatum's character in Magic Mike XXL, Dewan was all covered up in a black-and-white jumpsuit at the movie's premiere. She looked chic and ready for the cameras.
For The Hateful Eight premiere, Dewan stepped out in naked dress with black pipelining details that gave the illusion of underwires in a dress. This Marchesa design was a 10 on the sexiness scale.
The actress, who was pregnant with her first child, attended the VH1 Divas event in a baby blue gown. She looked like an ethereal, Grecian goddess.
It seemed every girl had a version of this outfit (bright minidress and gold platform pumps) in 2010. Although this wasn't our favorite look of Dewan's, she rocked it. Channing Tatum, on the other hand, what is that stain on your shirt?!
Was this the year, Dewan discovered the power of a thigh-high slit? This one red-carpet worthy detail saved this ruched dress from looking full prom.
The dancer and actress wore a minidress to the premiere of Entourage's third season in Los Angeles. Since it's not often Dewan goes for super short ensembles like this anymore, embrace the nostalgia of this dress.
Dewan stepped out with her then-beau Channing Tatum for a Giorgio Armani event and they matched in black. She wore a simple wide-shoulder strap dress while he layered a blazer over a sweater and button-down ensemble.
Dewan always finds the right dresses to fit her 5'3 frame. She wore this strapless number to the Los Angeles premiere of Step Up.
The actress loves a good floral print. She wore this sweet but sexy plunging neckline dress to the world premiere of Take The Lead in New York City.
Three years before Dewan made her debut in Step Up, the actress was spotted at a makeup event in LA. Tapping into the early 2000s style, she wore a cropped off-the-shoulder top and flared jeans with a studded belt. A newsboy cap completed the outfit.
