"Stop the attack on Gaza": the protest at the Cannes film festival

  • Kristen goes barefoot at Cannes

Even though multiple Cannes officials have denied that the high heel policy exists, Kristen Stewart seemingly believes that it does.

If Kristen Stewart's barefoot trek up the stairs was meant to be a rebellion against wearing high heels on the Cannes red carpet, she wouldn't be the first actress to kick off her shoes in protest.

These hazy and gender-skewed rules were likely on her mind when Stewart chose to take off her towering Christian Louboutin stilettos upon approaching the staircase that ascends from the red carpet.

The Twilight actress was seen walking barefoot on the Cannes Film Festival's red carpet in protest against the 'no flats policy'.

Last year, Stewart - who's been known to wear trainers with dresses on the red carpet - spoke about the event's fashion rules.

And speaking to the Hollywood Reporter a year ago about the Cannes ban on flat shoes, she said: "There's definitely a distinct dress code, right?"


Actress Kristen Stewart had expressed disgruntlement with the Cannes expectations before, telling The Hollywood Reporter in 2017, "If you're not asking guys to wear heels and a dress you can't ask me either".

"You just can't ask me to do something that you're not asked to do man".

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

In 2015, Emily Blunt called the rule "very disappointing" and said that "everyone should wear flats, to be honest". Does he have to wear heels?' It can work both ways.

Del Toro attended the film festival as president of the jury for the Un Certain Regard (A Certain Glance) section, aimed at showcasing different points of view, visions, styles, and non-traditional narratives, selected from "cultures near and far".
