Ms Stewart kicked off her black Louboutins on the "BlacKkKlansman", turning heads and causing some to wonder whether it was done as a show against the footwear rule.

Actor Kristen Stewart made a defiant protest against the Cannes Film Festival's heels-only rule for women, removing her shoes while on the red carpet.

At one point she stifled a yawn, looking rather bored with the media obligations.

The festival has seen mostly clear skies, but Monday rain fell off and on throughout the day and red carpet photographers juggled cameras and umbrellas at Lee's well-received premiere.

"I get the black-tie thing but you should be able to do either version-flats or heels".

Powell's POV: I guess this also means that Rousey and Jax won't be appearing in person at today's Raw television taping in London. She's one of a kind, so there definitely has to be an alternation to my regimen and I'm looking forward to it.

"I feel like you can't ask people that any more - it's a given". "It's just like you simply can not ask me to do something that you are not asking him [to do]". Taking them off before heading up the stairs at Palais des Festivals she provided the event with a moment of reality amidst the festival's fantasy.

However, in 2015, it was rumoured that a group of female invitees were turned away from the opening of Cate Blanchett film Carol for turning up in flats.

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.
