The BOLDEST celebrity gowns from the Cannes Film Festival 2018

While she was climbing the stairs the photographers kept taking pictures.

She was present for the Monday night gala premiere of "BlacKkKlansman", Spike Lee's new film.

That same year, Julia Roberts went barefoot on the Cannes red carpet.

82 women including Kristen Stewart, Cate Blanchett, Salma Hayek walked the red carpet to protest the number of female directors selected by Cannes i.e. 82 as compared with more than 1600 male directors since 1946.

Kristen Stewart Just Broke All The Red Carpet Rules At Cannes

The actress has been a regular on the famous red carpet for years now and is well aware of the long-running (if not ridiculous) rule about wearing heels for the event.

Palestinian filmmaker Annemarie Jacir led a rally at the Cannes Film Festival yesterday to show solidarity with the 60 people killed in the Gaza protests, on the same day as the opening of the United States embassy in Jerusalem. Kristen has been previously vocal about the dress code. "If you're not asking guys to wear heels and a dress, you can not ask me either". "Things have to change immediately", she said as quoted by Vanity Fair in 2016. You can not come in.' Then [I'm going to say], 'Neither is my friend. 'People get very upset if you don't wear heels, but I feel that you can't ask people that any more. We shouldn't be wearing high heels anyway. "I understand the whole theme with black ties, but we need to allow women to walk without heels".

In 2014, actress Emma Thompson famously carried her heels on stage at the Golden Globes while also holding a martini glass when she appeared to present an award. If you're not asking guys to wear heels and a dress, you can't ask me either'.

She once again addressed the issue in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter in 2017, "There's definitely, like, a distinct dress code, right?"
