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

Kristen goes barefoot at Cannes Kristen Stewart Just Broke All The Red Carpet Rules At Cannes

Case in point, the storm she's stirred at the 71st Cannes Film Festival red carpet.

Back in 2015, a group of well-dressed women was denied entry into a screening at the prestigious festival thanks to their choice of flat shoes.

Stewart was protesting against Cannes Film Festival's infamous and widely criticized heels-only rule for women.

Cannes is 1/2 about films and 1/2 about being seen and cutting a dashing figure on the red carpet, where photographers from around the world are gathered in droves. We shouldn't be wearing high heels anyway.

She is being applauded by the Twitterverse for her act, ever since.

CANNES-The issue of high heels at Cannes has been a spiky one in recent years. You can not come in.' Then [I'm going to say], 'Neither is my friend. Anyone who has worn heels will know the moment when the discomfort becomes too much, and you wonder why you're suffering for the sake of a fashion most men will never experience (nor are they expected to). "If you're not asking guys to wear heels and a dress, you can't ask me either", she told The Hollywood Reporter. But, as it started to rain, Kristen headed toward the stairs removing her heels in order to get there a little quicker.

She added, " I get the black-tie thing but you should be able to do either version - flats or heels".

Lebanese actress Manal Issa raised a sign which said "stop the attack on Gaza" while walking the Cannes Film festival red carpet to draw attention to the Israeli army's killing of Palestinians on the Gaza border a day earlier. She even cracked a small smile while rocking her stilettos.

While we wonder if the organisers will change the rules from next year, Kristen Stewart has won millions of hearts for her bold gesture.
