Kristen goes barefoot at Cannes

Hollywood actress Kristen Stewart flouted a ban on flat shoes at this year's Cannes Film Festival opting for a barefoot fashion statement on the red carpet.

The Twilight actress wore black Louboutin heels as she arrived at the BlacKkKlansman premiere. She walked the carpet and then stopped to remove her shoes and walked the stairs without her heels.

Palestinian filmmaker Annemarie Jacir led a rally at the Cannes Film Festival yesterday to show solidarity with the 60 people killed in the Gaza protests, on the same day as the opening of the United States embassy in Jerusalem.

Although Stewart, who was a member of the film festival's jury this year, didn't confirm whether she removed her heels in protest of the French festival's rule forbidding women from wearing flats, it was assumed that she did it on objective as she has spoken in the past against the arcane dress code. She was apparently not sanctioned for taking off her heels. It's just like you simply can not ask me to do something that you are not asking him [to do].

This is not the first time that the red-carpet dress code has come under scrutiny for being controversial.

And speaking to the Hollywood Reporter past year about the Cannes ban on flat shoes, she said: "There's definitely a distinct dress code, right?" "People get very upset if you don't wear heels or whatever". Once again a celebrity caused a stir on the red carpet. Like, if you're not asking guys to wear heels and a dress, you can not ask me either, which is nice 'cause that's different.

Kristen Stewart ditched her heels on the way to "BlacKkKlansman" premiere at the Cannes Film Festival.

Back in 2015, a group of women were not allowed to walk in flats to attend the screening of "Carol".
