If there’s anyone in Hollywood who doesn’t play by the rules its Kristen Stewart for sure. The Twilight star recently walked the red carpet of the 71st Cannes Film Festival as a member of this year’s jury at the premiere of Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman and her walk was anything but conventional!
A rule at the Cannes requires women to wear heels and no flats while men are to wear a black tie. Rebelling against the rule, Kristen kicked off her Louboutin heels midway and made quite the statement. The star completed the rest of the walk barefoot with her shoes in her hands.
This, however, is not the first time the actress has expressed her concern regarding the rule which had women wearing flats due to medical conditions turned away by security.
In 2016, Kristen told Vanity fair, “Things have to change immediately, 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. You cannot come in.’ Then (I’m going to say), ‘Neither is my friend. Does he have to wear heels?’ It can work both ways. It’s just like you simply cannot ask me to do something that you are not asking him. I get the black-tie thing but you should be able to do either version — flats or heels.”
While the Hollywood baddie has nothing against heels she stands firmly against the rule and we are with her 100%.
