Kristen Stewart flouted the Cannes Film Festival rule that ladies won’t put on apartments to red-carpet screenings via ditching her heels on Monday quickly after her photograph was once taken.
Stewart, who’s a member of the movie pageant’s jury this yr, posed for photographers whilst dressed in a couple of Christian Louboutin stilettos. The actress then unexpectedly got rid of her sneakers and walked the remainder of the purple carpet barefoot on her solution to a screening of Spike Lee’s movie “BlacKkKlansman.”
Stewart has no longer stated whether or not she got rid of her sneakers to protest the French pageant’s rule requiring girls to don excessive heels, and her representatives didn’t go back HuffPost’s request for remark. But the superstar has spoken out previously in opposition to what many believe an arcane get dressed code.
At the 2016 pageant, Stewart informed Vanity Fair that the coverage had to trade right away.
“If [a man and I] were walking the red carpet together and someone stopped me and said, ‘Excuse me, young lady, you’re not wearing heels. You cannot come in,’ then [I’m going to say], ‘Neither is my friend. Does he have to wear heels?’” she stated on the time. “It can work both ways. It’s just like you simply cannot ask me to do something that you are not asking him. I get the black-tie thing but you should be able to do either version — flats or heels.”
That identical yr, Julia Roberts went barefoot at the Cannes purple carpet.
The high-profile rebellions in opposition to the get dressed code appear to stem from a 2015 incident when middle-aged girls dressed in rhinestone apartments had been grew to become clear of a screening of the movie “Carol.” The pageant cited the “obligatory heels” coverage according to the outrage.
