Actress Joey King wore a deep-cut white outfit by designer Cong Tri to the red-carpet movie premiere of 'Bullet Train' starring her and actor Brad Pitt.

The actress stood out in a luxurious sequin embroidered satin silk outfit at the movie premiere on Aug. 1 in Los Angeles. The cut-out detail at the waist and deep neckline helped the actor show off her sexy curves.

To complete the look, she paired the gown with a necklace by British jewelry designer Shaun Leane and a wet look hairstyle and wavy tail inspired by the 1920s.
