High fashion's gatekeeper, Vogue magazine, is raising hackles after declaring that cleavage is officially "over."

In an article from its upcoming Dec. issue, the British edition of the fashion glossy explores the supposed disappearance of cleavage-baring garments on the runways and red carpets, pointing to a high-necked Louis Vuitton recently worn by Alicia Vikander as a case in point.

Clearly they didn't consider this recent appearance by Emily Ratajkowski...

"The tits will not be out for the lads," writes Kathleen Baird-Murray, much to the chagrin of lads everywhere.

It's clear the good people at Vogue are just remarking on a trend its editors have spotted, not declaring women must now hang up their push up bras for good and leave their Wonderbras on sheets of ice to drift off to their dooms.

Even so, after the magazine posed the question, "Is cleavage dead?" on a Twitter quiz, it prompted backlash on both sides of the pond. Many mistook it as a decree to kill cleavage, and others, riled up, declared, "tits out for life!"

Whatever the intention of Vogue, we share in the sentiments of these crossed cleavage lovers. Boobs are eternal, and must be celebrated at every opportunity.
