'No flats policy': Kristen Stewart ditches heels on Cannes Red Carpet

Lifestyle       by Bushra Nayeem | Published

Dressed in a matte black dress, Manal Issa held up her sign Tuesday as she walked down the red carpet ahead of the premier of the new movie Solo: A Star Wars Story.

The strapless lace and ball gown was by Ashi Studio Couture.

Stewart usually swapped heels for Converse at the most glamorous moments, but this time taking off her shoes was definitely political.

Kristen isn't the first actress to push-back against the red carpet rule though. To complete the ultra-feminine look, Nelson applied a good dose of mascara on her top and bottom lashes, as well as a warm, pearlescent liner to her bottom lash line.

Finally, no list would be complete without mention of United States actress Kristen Steward who removed her shoes as she walked the red carpet at Cannes on May 14.

The Cannes dress code became a controversial topic in 2015 when a number of women attending a premiere were stopped from entering for wearing flat soled shoes instead of high heels.

82 women including Kristen Stewart, Cate Blanchett, Salma Hayek walked the red carpet to protest the number of female directors selected by Cannes i.e. 82 as compared with more than 1600 male directors since 1946.

The 28-year-old wowed in a metallic dress from the French fashion house Chanel and black stilettos pumps before ditching her designer heels to climb the steep stairs at the end of the carpet. It's just like you simply can not ask me to do something that you are not asking him [to do].

Stewart-who is now a jury member for the prestigious film festival-previously discussed the dress code during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter in 2017. It's just a given. People get very upset at you if you, like, don't wear heels or something-whatever.
