Kristen Stewart Just Broke All The Red Carpet Rules At Cannes

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. The film, by Spike Lee, stars Corey Hawkins and Topher Grace and takes on the checkered history of the Ku Klux Klan.

The 28-year-old has a history of taking exception to high heels, she has previously worn trainers to red carpet events.

This year's Cannes Film Festival has already been one of the most political in several years, with female stars protesting against industry sexism, several directors barred from attending and bans hanging over some movies. "Does he have to wear heels?'" she said at the time.

Kantemir Balagov, Julie Huntsinger, Annemarie Jacir, Virginie Ledoyen and Benicio del Toro at the 71st annual Cannes Film Festival. It has become really obvious that 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. 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 wear high heels". "I understand the whole theme with black ties, but we need to allow women to walk without heels". If you're not asking guys to wear heels and a dress, you can't ask me either'.

And speaking to the Hollywood Reporter previous year about the Cannes ban on flat shoes, she said: "There's definitely a distinct dress code, right?" Like, if you're not asking guys to wear heels and a dress, you can not ask me either, which is nice 'cause that's different.

Sara wore a very feathery white creation from the designers who have been hotly tipped to design Meghan Markle's wedding dress - Ralph & Russo. "You can't do that anymore".
