Jenna Dewan has taken her single status to the next level, debuting a sexy new look during her first public appearance since splitting with estranged husband, Channing Tatum, this month. 

The actress walked the red carpet for the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital's fifth annual Hope and Heritage gala solo, as she was honored with the organization's 2018 research award on Friday evening. 

After dropping Tatum from her last name and posting a lingerie snap to Instagram earlier this week, the 37-year-old was ready to continue her sizzling streak, and a beaded Zuhair Murad gown helped accomplish that goal.

The embroidered, floor-length dress featured a plunging neckline and tulle skirt, which complemented Dewan's lithe figure. A matching cape with a feathered hem was gracefully draped across her shoulders, while sparkly drop earrings and a grouping of rings added an extra layer of sophistication. 

Since her last appearance with Channing in November, we've recognized a noticeable shift in Dewan's red carpet style. Leaning on the sexy side of the spectrum, the Step Up star has been on fire, with naked dresses and gowns that show some major leg. 

The collective conclusion? Single looks good on Jenna!
