Cannes 2018: Female stars protest on red carpet for equal rights

Reasons aside, the optics of the actress and competition jury member kicking off her shoes and then ascending the red carpeted stairs of the Palais is not something normally seen at the festival and, intentional or not, offered up a striking contrast to the controversy from just three years ago. "'Cómprame un revólver" is one of the 20 selected films for the Directors" Fortnight, non competitive section of Cannes Film Festival which is celebrating this year its 50th edition. Good thing her toes were painted in a simple black shade so her feet had time to shine even during the shoe removal!

She told the Hollywood Reporter: 'There's definitely a distinct dress code. You won't have to work hard to dissect the meaning behind that particular statement either, as she flipped off photographers at the photo call. You can not come in.' Then [I'm going to say], 'Neither is my friend. People get very upset at you if you don't wear heels or whatever'.

Earlier today, Kristen walked the red carpet at Cannes for her new film, Blackkklansman.

This isn't the first time K-Stew has protested Cannes' controversial rule for women. The red carpets of Cannes may be known for their outlandish fashions, but this year comfort trumps all, just ask Kristen Stewart. "I get the black-tie thing but you should be able to do either version-flats or heels".

Lewis Film Awards held at Cannes will celebrate women from the film Industry all over the world. The red carpet also passed and the members of the jury cate Blanchett and Kristen Stewart.
