Jenna Dewan Makes First Red Carpet Appearance

Jenna Dewan stepped out for her first public appearance since announcing her split from husband Channing Tatum. The actress attended the St. Jude Hope & Heritage Gala on Friday, April 20, where she was being honored as the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Humanitarian of the Year.

The World of Dance host, 37, was not wearing her wedding ring as she walked the red carpet at the event wearing a stunning black gown with floral designs. She was being honored for her contributions to the research hospital and for promoting their work through their St. Jude Thanks and Giving and Mother’s Day campaigns and for visiting the hospital and spending time with St. Jude’s patients and their families.

Dewan, who brought her father Darryll Dewan as her date, thanked the children’s hospital on Instagram. “Thank you @stjude for this incredible honor! I am so proud of everything you do and continue to do for children❤??,” she captioned a pic of herself holding the award on Friday.
