Channing Tatum: World’s Sexiest Investment Banker. Seriously, though, I have no complaints about this outfit, except the fact that it could have been better accessorized with a move like this:

Channing and his stylist be like:

Oh, right! There’s ladiez in this movie! Elizabeth Banks is one of my all-time red-carpet faves, so of course she slayed in this ensemble. A hint of sideboob, because hello, it’s Magic Mike, but the styling is demure, to keep the attention on the fellas. Girlfriend does her job and does it well.

Is there a better character in film history than Big Dick Richie? I think not. Here’s Joe, in a lovely three-piece suit that he has no business wearing when he should clearly just do all his red carpet appearances in cut-up Metallic tanks. I mean, would that we all were this Pepsi fridge:

I’m really enjoying the fact that Poster Channing seems to be leaping off of Joe’s deliciously broad shoulders. But I feel Joe is under-reacting to the close presence of shirtless Channing. Any normal reaction to such a phenomenon would look more like this:

A red carpet career high for Amber Heard. I specify “red carpet,” because her overall career high was definitely that time when Channing dry-humped her face:

She’s wearing a skirt over a dress and I approve. I’m also enjoying her faraway stare, in which she is clearly reminiscing about moments such as this:

We should all go out and buy this exact dress, because I’m pretty sure it’s universally flattering. Also, I’m running out of Magic Mike XXL gifs that actually feature Amber Heard. Because Tumblr has its priorities in order. And those priorities are nearly-naked dudes humping stuff.

This outfit is not at all deserving of the almighty woman who got to make this magical moment happen:

It shouldn’t even be physically possible to see how blue his eyes are from this distance. But Matt Bomer has the eyes of a Game of Thrones White Walker, and the body of a Greek god. One of the really gay ones.

I’ve stopped even pretending to comment on these suits, haven’t I?

Jada is ageless, stylish, gorgeous, and a pretty damn good emcee replacement for Matthew McConaughey, though I did miss his assless chaps. I’m sure she did too.

Aight, now I’m REALLY out of gifs that feature ladies, so, like, just have another one of these:

Fuck the clothes. Here’s Channing Tatum, bringing sexy back to the art of welding:

Tito gifs are extraordinarily hard to come by, because even in the second movie he doesn’t do much besides talk about fro-yo. But SHAME ON YOU, internet, for depriving me of close-up solo Adam Rodriguez gifs. Here, have a picture of him in a mesh tank top instead:

Which Channing dance move do you think most sticks out in Jenna’s mind when she’s watching her him play with their baby? I hope it’s this one:

Hate the fit just above the waist; love everything else about this. But mostly just thinking about the fact that Jenna gets to be married to this:

Those, apparently, are not cuffs. They are “illusion sleeves.” No, I cannot tell you why this is a thing. Yes, I will cleanse your palate with more jacked dudes.

GODDAMMIT, SOFIA. No one wearing beige platforms with an ivory dress should have the luxury of coming home to this:

  1. No….this dress is a catastrophe for every woman with curves. The extra fabric just makes you huger than you are (even the woman in the picture looks like she has huge hips), never mind how unflattering it is for your breast.

    But about the important stuff….mmmm….Matt Bomer….you know, I didn’t really intend to watch the movie because I was so angry about him only getting used as eye-candy the last time around, but I heard he actually has lines this time around AND sings….twice…..that made me reconsider….

      I think as long as the draping falls in the right spot on the individual woman wearing it, it could be great, but I definitely see your point.

      And yes, Matt Bomer and Joe Manganiello have way … ahem… bigger parts in the sequel. Literally and figuratively!

      I just give the people what they want. If that happens to involve me spending hours combing through every single Magic Mike gif on the internet, well, that’s just a happy coincidence.

      I mean, at a certain point, I just had to stop pretending that this post was even a little bit about fashion. 😛
