Kristen Stewart Goes Barefoot At Cannes To Protest Their Ridiculous Flats Ban!

Cannes Film Festival 2018 Cate Blanchett Michael B Jordan and Marion Cotillard make appearances on Day 6

Cannes Film Festival 2018 Cate Blanchett Michael B Jordan and Marion Cotillard make appearances on Day 6

But as she posed for the shutterbugs for pictures, she removed her stilettos and walked barefoot on the red carpet.

This is the first Cannes festival since allegations of sexual abuse were first made against producer Harvey Weinstein a year ago.

Kristen, who's been outspoken about her hatred of the no flats rule, clearly meant it as a screw you to Cannes' dress code (though we're sure comfort played into it too). Just in case the message wasn't clear enough, she also gave photographers the finger during photos. "You can not come in", then (I'm going to say), "Neither is my friend, does he have to wear heels?". So the next time you're rocking a pair of heels and had to run, don't hesitate to remove them and go barefoot-you'll definitely get there faster and safer!

"It's just like you simply can not ask me to do something that you are not asking him".

Wearing a silver mini dress with sparkling embellishments, Kristen oozed confidence when she arrived at the premiere for Blackkklansman. This is not the first time that she spoke about this tradition at the fest.

The 28-year-old, who is a serving jury member for the Cannes Film Festival this year, could find herself in a spot of trouble with event organisers after shunning the rule that dictates women attending the event must wear heels and "no flats". As jury president Cate Blanchett noted, 1,688 male directors have ascended those same stairs to premiere their films during the life of the festival, but just 82 women have gotten that same honor.

However, Cannes clearly still has work to do.

Gera's "Sir", which has been selected for Critic's Week, a sidebar of the Cannes Film Festival, will be showcased on May 14, 15 and 16 here.
