Kristen Stewart Defies Cannes' Strict Red Carpet Policy

Kristen Stewart Defies Cannes' Strict Red Carpet Policy

In front of a mass of photographers, Stewart stopped to remove her pointy-toed black Christian Louboutin pumps; she picked them up, and carried them up the steps, barefoot.

The 28-year-old, who is a serving jury member for the Cannes Film Festival this year, could find herself in a spot of trouble with event organisers after shunning the rule that dictates women attending the event must wear heels and "no flats".

She did this while heading to the gala premiere for Spike Lee's BlacKkKlansman.

The actress was snapped doing what many women dream of but few are fearless enough to do while hitting the red carpet at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival in France on Monday evening.

She told the Hollywood Reporter: 'There's definitely a distinct dress code.

UCLA biologists 'transfer' a memory
It was "as though we had transferred the memory", study co-author and UCLA professor David Glanzman said, the BBC reported . But scientists have been studying sea snails for a long time, and they know an terrible lot about how the organisms learn.

After passing the first junket of photographers, the actress made a decision to exit the red carpet in comfort, taking her heels into her hands and making her way up the famed Palais stairs. People get very upset at you if you don't wear heels or whatever'.

Stewart later addressed the saga while talking to The Hollywood Reporter, saying, "If you're not asking guys to wear heels and a dress, you cannot ask me either".

Stewart, a self-confessed fashion junkie, revealed that her thoughts are nothing against heels either.

In 2015, it was reported that women had been turned away from red carpet premieres for wearing flat shoes. "I feel like you can't ask that anymore, but it's still a given", said Stewart.

Speaking at the time, she said: "Everyone should wear flats, to be honest".
