Kristen Stewart ditched her heels on the 2018 Cannes Movie Competition on Monday and walked the remainder of the purple carpet barefoot in what seemed to be a type of protest.
Whereas posing for photos on the screening of the movie BlacKkKlansman, Stewart eliminated her Louboutins and carried them into the venue.
The act seemed to be a type of protest in opposition to the competition’s controversial gown code. In 2015, Cannes came under fire for allegedly implementing a heels-only coverage. On the time, ScreenDaily reported that ladies of their 50s have been being turned away from the screening as a result of they wore flats. Whereas the competition declined to touch upon the trade newspaper’s experiences, it did verify that ladies have been required to put on high-heels to purple carpet screenings. Nevertheless, competition director Thierry Frémaux tweeted that the declare was a “rumor” and “unfounded.”
Stewart has spoken out in regards to the gown code earlier than.
“There’s positively, like, a definite gown code, proper? Folks get very upset at you for those who, like, do not put on heels or one thing—no matter,” she advised The Hollywood Reporter in 2017. “However I really feel like you’ll be able to’t ask people who anymore. It is simply form of a given. Like, for those who’re not asking guys to put on heels and a gown, you can’t ask me both, which is good ‘trigger that is totally different. Even, like, 4 years in the past, it was, like, not even a query. You must put on a gown….However now, it is superior. You’ll be able to’t try this anymore.”
