So much for the death of cleavage.

Every now and then, even a style bible is bound to get it wrong and after a flashy awards season, it looks like Vogue's famous declaration than cleavage was over - we've seen more plunging necklines than ever before.

Oscar-winning actress Brie Larson ensured all eyes were on her in a head-turning Ralph & Russo couture gown at the Kong: Skull Island world premiere on Tuesday night, with a seriously plunging neckline.

The 27-year-old kept everything in check with a discreet, sheer panel across her chest as she joined co-stars Tom Hiddleston and Samuel L. Jackson in Leicester Sequare.

It was straight back to business as the actress is back on the promotional trail for her new blockbuster, just 48 hours after the Oscars.

Last year's Best Actress winner presented Manchester by the Sea star Casey Affleck the statue for Best Actor on Sunday and pictures of her refusing to clap for him have since gone viral.

Larson, a vocal advocate for sexual assault survivors, won a string of awards last year for her portrayal as a rape survivor in Room, refused to clap for Affleck, who has been the subject of sexual harassment allegations.

The 41-year-old actor, who took home the gong for Best Actor for his role in Manchester by the Sea, faced two sexual harassment allegations in 2010.

He has faced fresh scrutiny over the historical sexual harassment allegations since he has moved into the limelight for his critically-acclaimed portrayal of a grief-stricken divorcee father.

While Affleck garnered a standing ovation for receiving the award, Larson appeared to offer the world a silent, noiseless protest

Viewers immediately noticed Larson’s apparent lack of enthusiasm for Affleck and the saga prompted an onslaught of memes on Twitter.
