Emily Blunt also protested this rule and spoke out against it saying that everyone should wear flats and shouldn't wear heels. According to The Washington Post, Lebanese actor Manal Issa appeared on the red carpet during the premiere of Solo: A Star Wars Story with a sign reading "Stop the attack on Gaza".

The strict dress code at the Cannes red carpet that has been an issue of controversy has once again been challenged by Kristen Stewart.

In 2015, it was reported Cannes had implemented a heels-only policy.

While talking to BBC Newsbeat about shoegate, Cannes Film Festival spokeswoman Christine Aimé seemingly blamed the event's hosts and hostesses for misinterpreting the vague dress code, which only says that women are required to wear formal clothing for movie screenings.

Kristen Stewart is such a rebel and she recently took it to an global level. Does he have to wear heels?' It can work both ways. You can not come in, ' then [I'm going to say], 'Neither is my friend. "Does he have to wear heels?'" Stewart said. It's just like you simply can not ask me to do something that you are not asking him.

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

Although several Twitter users applauded Stewart's rebellious move, others criticized her for what they viewed to be a small gesture in a serious, ongoing debate for women's rights.
