The Cannes Film Festival opened last week, with swarms of A-List celebrities taking to the red carpet on the French Riviera, to celebrate the 71st annual event.

While the films featured covered all issues, the most political statements were made on the red carpet, with multiple actresses using their get-up to take a powerful stand.

Numerous women (and men) dressed in head to toe black, from Penelope Cruz to Georgia May Jagger – a nod to the Time’s Up movement and its stand against the mistreatment of women.

But that wasn’t where it stopped. And from Thandie Newton’s powerful Vivienne Westwood couture comment on race to Cannes Jury President Cate Blanchett’s stand against clothes waste, there have been a lot of political fashion statements to talk about.

The A-lister who made the biggest waves on the red carpet however has to be Kristen Stewart for repeatedly sticking two fingers up to Cannes’ no flats rule.

The festival’s strict dress code for women has come under heavy fire in recent years, with its controversial ‘no flats’ rule accused of being sexist and backwards.

Kristen’s response? Kicking off her towering Christian Louboutin stilettos after a photo call on the red carpet premiere of Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman and entering the theatre barefoot.

Kristen has been outspoken about her hatred of the no flats rule, and proving that she was serious, the actress made headlines this week again as she broke the ‘no flats’ rule for a second time this year.

This time the actress opted for a pair of flat Sarah Flint loafers, teaming them with leather trousers and a midriff-baring suit.

Yet another reason to love Kristen Stewart.
