Kristen Stewart Goes Barefoot at Cannes Film Festival, Defies Heels-Only Rule

Cannes festival confirmed that it is compulsory for women to walk the red carpet in heel shoes. In a silent rebellion at the recently held 71st Cannes Film Festival; Kristen came, posed, kicked off her Christian Louboutin heels and casually walked the rest of the red-carpet barefoot on her way to a screening of Spike Lee's film "BlacKkKlansman". Dressed in all black this actress made sure she became a voice for the silenced ones.

Cannes is renowned for attracting the world's most handsome people for a week of breathtaking red carpet moments.

Last year, Stewart - who's been known to wear trainers with dresses on the red carpet - spoke about the event's fashion rules. Whether it was her publicised relationship with Robert Pattison or her role in Certain Women, Kristen has successfully shed her girl next door image and established herself as a phenomenal actor.

Even though multiple Cannes officials have denied that the high heel policy exists, Kristen Stewart seemingly believes that it does. You can not come in.' Then (I'm going to say), 'Neither is my friend.

Emily Blunt also protested this rule and spoke out against it saying that everyone should wear flats and shouldn't wear heels. "It can work both ways". You can not come in.' Then (I'm going to say), 'Neither is my friend.

"You just can't ask me to do something that you're not asked to do man. I get the black-tie thing but you should be able to do either version-flats or heels", she explained.

Stewart didn't comment on her decision, she simply took off the shoes, picked them up, and proceeded on her merry way.

In 2015, it was reported Cannes had implemented a heels-only policy. The fact that so many heads are turning at the mere sight of the barefoot Stewart means we have a long way to go, but we're moving in the right direction.
