The 9 Most Ab-solutely Gorgeous 'Magic Mike XXL' Premiere Pics

Because we love watching beautiful people do beautiful things.

First, the bad news: from the looks of things, everyone hit the carpet at the "Magic Mike XXL" premiere fully clothed. Can't win 'em all.

But every cloud has a silver lining, and this time around that silver lining can be found in the fact that Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer, Adam Rodriguez, and the rest of the magical stripper crew looked pretty spectacular in their formal wear on Thursday night (June 25).

Check out the photos below for proof, and try not to imagine those Armani shirts being ripped in two while "It's Raining Men" plays on in the background:

  1. First, we have to acknowledge a true Hollywood golden couple.

    Tatum and his wife, Jenna Dewan, will make any mere mortal curse the gods (and their own inferior genetics).

  2. And then we should probably acknowledge that a newer, spicier golden couple has arisen.

    Why do Manganiello and his fiancée Sofia Vergara always looking like they're A, having a total blast and B, about to bite each others' faces off?

  3. Like, SERIOUSLY right now?

    It's not even fair.

  4. Then there was Bomer, whose didn't even need his arm candy (hubs Simon Halls) to melt our hearts.

    Stop staring at me, Bomer. My soul can't take the heat.

  5. Adam Rodiguez, meanwhile, showed the paparazzi how. It's. Done.

    Blue steel all day all night.

  6. And Jada Pinkett Smith was rocking daisy yellow amidst a sea of black and grey.

    No Will? No problem.

  7. ... At least until she ran into Elizabeth Banks, and there was a "twinsies" situation.

    Own it, ladies.

  8. But of course, our favorite shots are the ones of the whole squad looking fresh.

    So. Much. Magic.

  9. ... And the ones of Channing Tatum, gleefully posing with himself.

    As the man himself would say, "HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA." And so on and so forth.

"Magic Mike XXL" hits theaters July 1.
