Kristen Stewart Taking Off Her Heels at Cannes Is All of Us

Lydia FlemingMay 15, 2018

The actress was snapped doing what many women dream of but few are fearless enough to do while hitting the red carpet at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival in France on Monday evening. After posing for a few obligatory photographs on arrival, Kristen promptly removed her heels and climbed up the red carpet stair barefoot.

It kicked off with the premiere of "Carol", when a producer with a foot injury was denied entry because her flat footwear wasn't up to snuff, an oft-reported story soon followed by other anecdotes about women being turned away from Cannes evening screenings because they were not wearing sky-high shoes.

She walked the red carpet here along with 81 women from all the professions of the industry in protest against gender gap.

She opted for a slicked back wet-look hairstyle, with reddish eye-shadow ones adding a pop of colour to the look.

"There's definitely a distinct dress code", Kristen told the Hollywood Reporter in 2017. "You can not come in", then (I'm going to say), "Neither is my friend, does he have to wear heels?". People get very upset at you if you don't wear heels or whatever'.

Embiid then had a verbal spat with Marcus Morris as he appeared to gesture that the Sixers were in the heads of the Celtics. The familiarity between the teams has done what it usually does - breed a bit of contempt.

Earlier in the week, Kristen had spoken about her delight at being a part of the proceeding at Cannes and praised Cate for speaking out on women's rights at the women's march on Saturday. "I feel like you can't ask that anymore, but it's still a given", said Stewart.

The Twillight star, however, was applauded by the Twitterverse for her act of rebellion.

Kristen Stewart has always had a knack for making a name for herself but it seems like she's taking her time on the jury for Cannes Film Festival and running with it.

In the past she has spoken out against the different regulations for men and women.

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