Cannes Film Festival 2018 Cate Blanchett Michael B Jordan and Marion Cotillard make appearances on Day 6

Gera's "Sir", which has been selected for Critic's Week, a sidebar of the Cannes Film Festival, will be showcased on May 14, 15 and 16 here. One of the weird rules is wearing heels on the red carpet by the female stars mandatory.

Kristen walked the red carpet barefoot, protesting the stringent dress code around the Cannes Film Festival. She's shut down sexist questions at panels, insisted on a more diverse and female jury alongside Khadja Nin, Ava Duvernay and more and lately made a powerful statement when she led a Cannes protest in the spirit of Time's Up. Telling reporters back in 2017 that found the rules outdated Stewart has been vocal about dressing the way she pleases.

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. Another user tweeted, "Hooray for #KristenStewart taking off her high heels at Cannes, what a ludicrous rule!"

In a controversial move she ditched her Louboutins on the red carpet. It has become really obvious that if (a man and I) were walking the red carpet together and someone stopped me and said, 'Excuse me, young lady, you're not wearing heels. Does he have to wear heels?' It can work both ways. The "Twillight' star, however, was applauded by the Twitterverse for her act of rebellion".

Earlier in the festival, those same steps also played home to yet another sea change at the annual event, as 82 women (including Stewart) marched in support of equality at the festival, which has long programmed films directed by men over those directed by women. "You can not come in", then (I'm going to say), "Neither is my friend, does he have to wear heels?".
