In 2014, actress Emma Thompson famously carried her heels on stage at the Golden Globes while also holding a martini glass when she appeared to present an award.
She posed on the red carpet for the Blackkklansman screening in a stylish pair of black Christian Louboutin stilettos and once her photos were done, she chose to take her heels off and walk barefooted on the red carpet.
While Kristen Stewart's attitude towards Cannes red carpet etiquette couldn't be more relaxed-ditching her heels midway through a photo call-the actress is definitely taking her beauty game seriously.
"People get very upset if you don't wear heels or whatever".
Her action had apparently not been sanctioned by the festival organisers. It's just like you simply can not ask me to do something that you are not asking him. "If you're not asking guys to wear heels and a dress, you can not ask me either".
And speaking to the Hollywood Reporter past year about the Cannes ban on flat shoes, she said: "There's definitely a distinct dress code, right?"
In 2015, the festival's "heels-only" dress code for women was all over the news after several women were not allowed to watch a screening of "Carol", a film starring Cate Blanchett. Speaking at the time, she said: "Everyone should wear flats, to be honest. We shouldn't wear high heels". "That's my point of view". She walked the carpet and then stopped to remove her shoes and walked the stairs without her heels.
BlacKkKlansman, which tells the story of an African-American infiltrating the KKK and stars John David Washington and Adam Driver, was given a standing ovation at the end of its premiere on Monday night.
