Lebanese actress Manal Issa holds a sign that reads "Stop the Attack on #Gaza" at the premiere of "Solo: A Star Wars Story" at #Cannes2018.

Cannes Film Festival is all about making fashion statements, while some chose to do that, there were others like Kristen Stewart making political statements at the famed red carpet.

The actress has been a regular on the famous red carpet for years now and is well aware of the long-running (if not ridiculous) rule about wearing heels for the event.

Jury member Kristen Stewart attends the screening of "BlacKkKlansman" during the 71st annual Cannes Film Festival at Palais des Festivals on May 14, 2018 in Cannes, France.

Cannes' alleged high heels only policy causes controversy every year when female stars walk the festival's red carpet in their glamorous gowns and fashionable footwear. You have to wear a dress.But now, it's awesome. As it turned out, 28-year-old Stewart took off his shoes in protest against the ban on shoes without heels. "We shouldn't wear high heels". "If you don't ask guys to wear a dress and heels, you can't ask me too", said not hiding his bisexuality, the actress in an interview previous year. You can not come in.' Then (I'm going to say), 'Neither is my friend. "It can work both ways".

"I feel like you can't ask people that any more - it's a given. I get the black-tie thing but you should be able to do either version - flats or heels".

Cannes is renowned for attracting the world's most lovely people for a week of breathtaking red carpet moments. According to Newsweek, Julia Roberts also walked the red carpet barefoot in 2016.
