Long before he was stripper Magic Mike, Channing Tatum knew how to work a crowd – just check out the new dad's blue steel pose on the catwalk in these shots from 2003.

Back then, Tatum was an in-demand model, taking the runway for Diddy's Sean John line and Marc Ecko at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City.

With his lips in a slight pucker and a smoldering look in his eyes, PEOPLE's reigning Sexiest Man Alive had perfected his own version of Derek Zoolander's iconic pose as he strutted down the catwalk in a selection of outfits.

Ranging from a fur-lined coat with leggings to a coated jean jacket to oversize leather pants and a yellow headband, we don't think many of the offerings would pass muster today.



Still, if Ben Stiller ever gets that Zoolander sequel off the ground, we hope he hires Tatum for it – the actor could offer Derek some stiff competition!
