Jenna Dewan: ‘My daughter can wear what she wants’

Jenna Dewan is more than happy to “just go with it” when it comes to the outfits her five-year-old daughter Everly chooses to wear.

The 38-year-old actress, who shares Everly with ex-husband Channing Tatum, opened up about the tot’s sense of style during an interview with People magazine.

And while some mothers might be conscious of letting their children out in the eccentric ensembles Everly puts together, Jenna is happy to let her be herself.


“She’s so bright and as soon as she came out, she was very funny,” Jenna smiled. “Lately, we’ve been really on her about dressing. She gets herself dressed. The other day, she had on a winter hat with a tutu, these leggings that were four inches too short and her camp T-shirt. She was like, ‘This is what I am wearing to your friend’s house.’ I was like, ‘You know what? Okay girl.’ I am the parent that just goes with it.”

When it comes to her own style, Jenna rarely puts a foot wrong – and those feet are usually clad in a pair of designer heels.

Recalling the first time she splashed out on a pair of pricey shoes, Jenna says it was just after she got her first big pay cheque from 2006 movie Step Up.

“I bought a pair of Christian Louboutin heels,” she remembered. “I still have them. I mean, they’re not in style anymore, but it was such a big deal to me to spend that much money on them. At the time I was blown away that I could do that so it was kind of cool.”
