Israel's massacre in Gaza reaches Cannes red carpet

Kristen Stewart Just Broke All The Red Carpet Rules At Cannes Kristen Stewart flouts footwear ban at Cannes Film Festival

Stewart usually swapped heels for Converse at the most glamorous moments, but this time taking off her shoes was definitely political.

The 28-year-old star was heading into the premiere of Spike Lee's new film "BlacKkKlansman" when she ditched her black heels.

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

Kristen Stewart proved she is all of us on the Cannes red carpet on Monday afternoon. 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 goal as she has spoken in the past against the arcane dress code.

Yes, it's widely known that the festival requires women to wear high heels on the red carpet, and even turned some attendees away in 2015 after they rocked up in flats.

In an effort to put an end to the age-old sexist tradition, the member of the jury, Kristen has begun speaking out against the dress code and the sexist fashion expectations at the event.

At the 2016 festival, Stewart told Vanity Fair that the "no flats" policy needed to change immediately. You can not come in, ' then [I'm going to say], 'Neither is my friend. If you're not asking guys to wear heels and a dress, you can't ask me either'. You have to wear a dress.But now, it's awesome.

And speaking to the Hollywood Reporter previous year about the Cannes ban on flat shoes, she said: "There's definitely a distinct dress code, right?" After seeing this look, we can't imagine wearing conventional pearls again.

"You just can't ask me to do something that you're not asked to do man. You can't do that anymore".
