Channing Tatum borrowed Zoe Kravitz’s longtime stylist for the Met Gala

Vogue’s Instagram has been publishing behind-the-scenes photos of the Met Gala, and would you look at this! Channing Tatum walked the carpet solo, and then soon after, Zoe Kravitz walked the carpet solo. They aren’t fooling anyone, clearly, because they spent the entire gala hanging out, and then they left together. It’s really becoming clear (to me) that Zoe dumped her husband FOR Channing. But they are a cute couple and I enjoy their energy. Call me crazy, but they seem like the younger version of Bennifer, right? She’s fashionable, cool, connected and he’s an everyday schlub who needs his lady to polish him up. And that’s just what Zoe is doing:

It appears that Zoë Kravitz gave rumored boyfriend Channing Tatum a style upgrade ahead of his Met Gala debut, hooking him up with her own longtime stylist, Andrew Mukamal. The wardrobe whiz, who also dressed Kaia Gerber for the event, posted photos of all three stars’ looks on Instagram Wednesday. Kravitz, 32, and Tatum, 41, walked the red carpet separately on Monday night, but reportedly couldn’t keep their hands off of each other inside the museum and at the afterparty.

It’s easy to see why the “Magic Mike” star couldn’t resist a little PDA; Kravitz was arguably the sexiest star at the Met in her totally sheer Saint Laurent metal mesh dress and matching thong. Tatum went classic for his first time at the starry shindig, wearing a simple Versace tuxedo. On Tuesday, the former model posted a sweet thank-you note to Donatella Versace on Instagram, expressing his gratitude for being invited to the exclusive ball and his admiration for her work.

“So 20 years ago… i was a kid stand in a room of what would be probably thousands of guys trying to get picked for the shows in Milan. God knows how many they actually saw. Hoping to get picked to walk in the spring show. I never got to walk for Versace in the maybe 6 or 7 seasons in went to the shows. But last night to get to wear this……. other worldly robe…….. and to wear the most classic Versace tux. Cut boxy like Gianni wore in the 90’s was beyond my wildest dreams. Donatella thank you so much for having and inviting and letting me wear such elegant and magical clothes. it was dream like. You are a legend!and a myth. @donatella_versace”

I forget it sometimes – I forget that Channing was just a kid from the deep South who hustled for years to make it, that he was a model and a dancer and a stripper, that for years he was on the outside looking in at this kind of life. I wonder what he thinks about Zoe’s background, with her two famous parents, her designer clothes, her dad’s home in Paris, and her ability to fit into this elite world with such ease. He seems to enjoy it. I bet he feels appreciation for her rather than jealousy. He seems to know he’s got a good thing happening right now.

Speaking of, not only did Channing and Zoe (Zanning, come on) leave the Met Gala together, but they went to the afterparties together. They were seen exiting The Bowery late Monday, only they left separately – Zoe walked out with Tessa Thompson and Channing left right after them. Tessa Thompson is, um, all about being the third wheel these days, huh?

    Go get it Tessa. Enjoy your life girl.

    Zanning, love it.

    They didn’t do a good job because that suit fit very poorly. Also, has his neck gotten wider over the years?

    • Ang says:

      It seems very common for men’s necks to get wider with age. I’ve noticed this a lot, along with the widening of the whole face.

      • (TheOG) Jan90067 says:

        It’s from exercise. When my nephew played HS football for four yrs., his neck widened considerably from the workouts to strengthen the neck muscles. When he went to college, and stopped the strenuous workouts, his neck got smaller. Recently, he started working out again, and again, it’s widening as he’s gaining upper body strength/muscles.

        CT does a LOT of exercise to keep in top shape. I’m sure this is what it’s from.

  4. Lena says:

    Channing has quite a large neck. That’s common for a southern man anyway (I actually didn’t know he was from the south, but it tracks). Of course they didn’t fool anyone by walking separately on the red carpet and leaving separately, but I appreciate their restraint in not pushing their affair up in the public’s face. A little restraint is classy, especially for him. He was a little gross with his previous well known relationships.

  5. Sudie says:

    Channing has not aged well, which I guess is a result of his party lifestyle. Here’s hoping he’s pulling it together and he appears to be getting back on track with a couple movies coming soon.

    • Eurydice says:

      Maybe it’s the buzz cut. To me, it makes him look like a generic action movie star – one of those guys who’s buffed, but could be any age.

      • Sudie says:

        Yes, could be. Looks like he was loosing most of his hair and decided to go with the buzz which is a lot better than a few wisps of hair. Zoe has likely gave him some good advice.

      • Eurydice says:

        I read somewhere that he got the buzz cut to get himself out of the character after wrapping his film back last November (?). In the stills he had a full head of hair, but that could have been enhanced – he did look a lot younger.

    • Korra says:

      See, I think he looks decent considering he has the type of wide, undefined features that don’t age well. And any weight gain automatically goes to his face.

      I think he looked rougher 5-6 years ago, while in his mid-thirties. He has clearly lost weight, cut back on drinking, and I suspect did some subtle fillers because close-ups of him at the Met Gala show him actually looking refreshed.

  6. Twin falls says:

    I’m going with he’s a nice guy making her feel better after (as?) her marriage ended. And that it’s temporary.

  7. Susan says:

    While he seems lovely in interviews, he has never lit my proverbial fire. Nothing personal against him, I’m just not attracted to that beefy guy look. And agree with previous posters, that look doesn’t age well, and the minute you stop workin out it starts looking like fat instead of muscle. They seem like an odd pairing, I see her with someone much cooler/hipper/more attractive but if she’s happy I am happy. She’s the legit cool girl (and not in a Gone Girl way).

  8. Rea says:

    CT looks bad. He needs to stop getting so much sun or tanning because he looks like a walking tomato. His hairstyle sucks it does not suit him because his face is too big and it draws more attention to that.

  9. Duhaa says:

    Zoe looks great…

  10. jferber says:

    I don’t know. Tessa and Zoe have a vibe that Channing and Zoe don’t. She never looks happy around him. Maybe Zoe oughta re-think her friendship with the incredibly hot Tessa and come to different conclusions about her. I sure would.

  11. Jenn says:

    I completely get it. He’s got that “labrador boyfriend” thing going on, which is catnip to a pansexual moon child. (I guess the TikTok term “bi wife energy” applies here.)

    And yes, she is SO much cooler than he is. The fact that she hired a stylist for him for the Emmys means she probably sees him as a “project.” And I feel like that kind of dynamic can actually last, if you want it to! It isn’t too far off from Lisa Bonet and Jason Momoa’s dynamic tbqh.

    • Duhaa says:

      Lisa Bonet & Jason Momoa accent each other and both wonderous to look at though plus Momoa seems fun and all round cool…..this is very different.

  12. Emily H says:

    They are the oddest couple to me. I adore Zoe and think she is so petite and striking. I do not understand her attraction to Channing Tatum. They are so different, it seems.
