  • Kristen Stewart Just Broke All The Red Carpet Rules At Cannes

The film, by Spike Lee, stars Corey Hawkins and Topher Grace and takes on the checkered history of the Ku Klux Klan.

The 71st annual Cannes Film Festival is now being held from 8 to 19 May 2018.

The Cannes Film Festival over the years has gone beyond simply basking in the fabulousness of stardom and has challenged celebrities to pull out some of the most show-stopping fashions to celebrate the films being screened.

"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".

Cannes festival confirmed that it is compulsory for women to walk the red carpet in heel shoes. The festival has earlier received flak for their strict dress code that frowns upon women who refrain from donning sky-high heels.

The pictures of the actress taking her shoes off literally made headline news around the world, and we can't help but think how ridiculous that is. She wore a mesmerising feathered gown which featured a plunging neckline at the screening of Solo: A Star Wars Story. Last year, during a roundtable conversation at the event, Stewart had reportedly said, "Things have to change immediately". You can not come in, ' then [I'm going to say], 'Neither is my friend.

"I feel like you can't ask people that any more - it's a given. I get the black-tie thing but you should be able to do either version, flats or heels". She even cracked a small smile while rocking her stilettos.

Kristen Stewart proved she is all of us on the Cannes red carpet on Monday afternoon.

Stewart isn't the first to go barefoot at Cannes, in 2016 actress Julia Roberts went shoeless to the premiere of Money Monster.
