Cannes 2018: Kristen Stewart rebels on red carpet with bare feet

New Delhi: She came, posed, kicked off her Christian Louboutin heels and made a political statement at the Cannes Film Festival.

Keeping up with her rebel attitude, Kristen Stewart, who was attending the premiere of ‘BlackKkKlansman,’ marched up the steps in her bare feet to revolt against Cannes’ high-heels-only rule.

The ‘Twillight’ star, however, was applauded by the Twitterverse for her act of rebellion.

“A moment when #KristenStewart is all women/men/people who grow sick of high heels. Yes. This. Totally,” wrote one user.

Another user tweeted, “Hooray for #KristenStewart taking off her high heels at Cannes, what a ludicrous rule! What is this the Dark Ages? Bravo!” The 28-year-old has been a vocal critic of the red carpet’s policy.

Last year, during a roundtable conversation at the event, Stewart had reportedly said, “Things have to change immediately. It’s just like you simply cannot ask me to do something that you are not asking him [to do]. I get the black-tie thing but you should be able to do either version-flats or heels.”
