The event has had a strict rule policy for years that years actresses must only wear high heels.

"If you're not asking guys to wear heels and a dress, you can't ask me either", she stated emphatically at the time.

Hollywood actress Kristen Stewart flouted a ban on flat shoes at this year's Cannes Film Festival opting for a barefoot fashion statement on the red carpet.

In the decider, a single break of serve in the seventh game gave Fognini the opportunity and he held to his two serves to win 6/3. His only defeat on the surface in 2018 was against Dominic Thiem in the quarter-finals of last week's Madrid Open.

This peaceful protest was seen on the red carpet before the premiere of "Solo: A Star Wars story".

Her action had apparently not been sanctioned by the festival organisers. However, while Stewart didn't mind getting her feet wet, someone with an umbrella was at her side to ensure that the rest of her body and her silver Chanel dress didn't get soaked. During a 2016 interview with Vanity Fair, she spoke about how she would react if she were told that she must wear high heels on the red carpet.

Nowhere are heels more politicised than at Cannes.

Cannes is renowned for attracting the world's most lovely people for a week of breathtaking red carpet moments. Telling reporters back in 2017 that found the rules outdated Stewart has been vocal about dressing the way she pleases. You can not come in.' Then (I'm going to say), 'Neither is my friend. "I feel like you can't ask that anymore, but it's still a given", said Stewart. That same year, Footwear News reported that Kristen Stewart removed another pair of Louboutin pumps and walked across a lawn during a Cannes photo call.
