Kristen Stewart flouts footwear ban at Cannes Film Festival

Звезда Сумерек Кристен Стюарт прошлась босиком на Каннском фестивале в знак протеста

Although Stewart, who was a member of the film festival's jury this year, didn't confirm whether she removed her heels in protest of the French festival's rule forbidding women from wearing flats, it was assumed that she did it on objective as she has spoken in the past against the arcane dress code. The actor, who rose to fame with her popular Twilight film series, is part of the first female-dominated Cannes Film Festival jury for many decades now. But, as it started to rain, Kristen headed toward the stairs removing her heels in order to get there a little quicker.

Finally, no list would be complete without mention of USA actress Kristen Steward who removed her shoes as she walked the red carpet at Cannes on May 14. If you're not asking guys to wear heels and a dress, you can't ask me either'.

At the time ScreenDaily said women in their fifities were being turned away from film premieres at the festival because they wore flats. 'People get very upset if you don't wear heels, but I feel that you can't ask people that any more. It has become really obvious that 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.

Premier League transfer window to open next week
It was over eight months ago that the Premier League voted to make changes to the Summer Transfer Window. This year's summer transfer window opens Thursday, May 17 , which is in a couple of days time.

Not just Kristen but others too have spoken out against the policy, including British actress Emily Blunt, who said: "Everyone should wear flats, to be honest". Does he have to wear heels?' It can work both ways. "That's my point of view".

The former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger meanwhile opted for a structured princess gown as she walked the red carpet for the same film screening.

BlacKkKlansman, which tells the story of an African-American infiltrating the KKK and stars John David Washington and Adam Driver, was given a standing ovation at the end of its premiere on Monday night.
