The actress' decision to kick off her shoes on the red carpet may have helped to bring attention to sexism in the film industry, whether she meant to or not. Manal Issa was attending the premiere of the film "Solo: A Star Wars Story". Once again a celebrity caused a stir on the red carpet.
Kristen Stewart is such a rebel and she recently took it to an worldwide level. Plus, as most other people who've rocked heels at an event before can understand, sometimes shoes get uncomfortable and are hard to move in.
"If [a man and I] were walking the red carpet together and someone stopped me and said, 'Excuse me, young lady, you're not wearing heels". 'People get very upset if you don't wear heels, but I feel that you can't ask people that any more.
"There's definitely a distinct dress code, right?" she told the Hollywood Reporter.
Stewart isn't the first to go barefoot at Cannes, in 2016 actress Julia Roberts went shoeless to the premiere of Money Monster.
At the time ScreenDaily said women in their fifities were being turned away from film premieres at the festival because they wore flats.
While we wonder if the organisers will change the rules from next year, Kristen Stewart has won millions of hearts for her bold gesture.
The strict dress code at the Festival states that there should be "no flats" so Kristen opted for a pair of sky high Christian Louboutin heels for the screening.
