Derek Zoolander, eat your heart out, because Channing Tatum is giving your infamous blue steel a major run for its money!
New pics of a young 23-year-old Channing surfaced on Thursday from the 2003 Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York, and let's just say, he's giving a whole new meaning to the phrase, "work it, own it!"
Hitting the runway for both Marc Ecko and Sean John, the photos show the Hollywood hottie donning big, baggy pants, an oversize varsity jacket, and a yellow sweat band — but our personal favorite? The ensemble he sported for P. Diddy's line, wearing a giant fur-and-leather coat with the tightest white thermal pants you've ever seen. (Ladies, you're welcome.)

But Channing isn't the only model-turned-Hollywood-hunk. Ashton Kutcher and Josh Duhamel were also stars on the catwalk at the International Modeling and Talent Association's male model of the year competition in 1997. (Josh took home the title, but Ashton was close behind in second place).
Check out the video to see the hilarious yet super-sexy throwback pics of Channing, and tune in to "omg! Insider" on TV tonight for all the latest entertainment news.
