The problem of high heels at Cannes, was a spiky one, in the last few years.

Now it seems that Kristen Stewart, a member of the jury of this year is the film festival, she broke the ban on flat shoes – by instead of going barefoot on the red carpet.

The Twilight actress wore black Louboutin heels as she arrived at the BlacKkKlansman premiere.

But before entering the screening of the films of Spike Lee, she slipped off the shoes to walk up the stairs.

She was apparently not punished for taking off her heels. The BBC has contacted the Cannes Film Festival for a comment.
‘You can not ask me to wear high heels”

Last year, Stewart – who has been known to wear trainers with dresses on the red carpet – he spoke of the event, the rules of fashion.

“There is definitely a distinct dress code, right?”, he told the Hollywood Reporter. “People get very upset if you do not wear high heels or any other thing.

“I feel like you can’t ask people that is a fact. If you are not asking the guys to wear heels and a dress, you can ask me.”

In 2015, it was reported that the women had been turned away from the red carpet of the premiere for wear low-heeled shoes.

The ban caused the stars to protest against the guidelines, with the British actress Emily Blunt in saying that the alleged ban was “very disappointing”.

Speaking at the time, she said: “Everyone should wear flats, to be honest. We should not be wearing high heels anyway. That is my point of view.”

Stewart is not the first person to take your shoes off on the red carpet since then, with Julia Roberts go barefoot, to the Cannes film festival in 2016 at the premiere of the Money Monster.

BlacKkKlansman, which tells the story of an African-American, infiltrated the KKK and star John David Washington, and Adam Driver, was given a standing ovation at the end of its premiere on Monday night.
