Courting attention It was a rare sight to behold at the glamorous event

So Kristen's was in a more glamorous setting, at the premiere for BlacKkKlansman, but her feet still hurt enough for her to rip off the footwear and go bare - although she might have been making a point, having previously said she disagreed with the unspoken rule that women must wear heels.

She has been a vocal opponent of the heels rule. You can not come in.' Then (I'm going to say), 'Neither is my friend. "I get the black-tie thing but you should be able to do either version-flats or heels".

"It's just like you simply can not ask me to do something that you are not asking him".


This isn't the first time Stewart has had an opinion about Cannes controversial "no flats" policy for red carpets, telling a reporter in 2006 that it was sexist.

Arriving in the rain with her own private umbrella holder, the 28-year-old star walked up the steps in a sexy metallic silver Chanel Couture dress, while clutching her red-soled heels, presumably Christian Louboutins.

Emily Blunt told a press conference that year "Everyone should wear flats, to be honest". We shouldn't be wearing high heels anyway.
