After striking a pose for the cameras on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival Monday, Kristen Stewart made a sudden rebellious move: The actress ditched her black Christian Louboutin pumps and climbed the staircase barefoot.
Stewart, who was attending the premiere of BlackKkKlansman, has been a vocal critic of the red carpet’s heels-only policy for women.
“Things have to change immediately,” Stewart said at a roundtable discussion last year, according to Marie Claire. “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.”
Many on Twitter applauded Stewart’s act of rebellion.

This "no flats - only heels" rule is absolutely ridiculous.— Ava ? (@cafeetchailatte) May 14, 2018
Others were less than impressed, but the actress certainly made a stir.
What are y’all’s thoughts on Kristen Stewart taking her heels off in the middle of the red carpet at the Cannes festival? ????— guccimama (@FENDILAURENT) May 14, 2018
