The Twilight actress made a statement on the red carpet on Monday night, removing her heels, seemingly in protest at the strict dress code.

Arriving at the premiere of Spike Lee's Blackkklansman in silver Chanel Couture Stewart continued the series of sleek, Lagerfeld approved looks she's worn since arriving in Cannes to serve on the main competition jury.

Her action had apparently not been sanctioned by the festival organisers. She was sporting black nail-paint on her toe-nails.

Stewart may not be a big fan of high heels, but she did keep her Louboutins on for a few Cannes red carpet photos.

82 women including Kristen Stewart, Cate Blanchett, Salma Hayek walked the red carpet to protest the number of female directors selected by Cannes i.e. 82 as compared with more than 1600 male directors since 1946.

"You just can't ask me to do something that you're not asked to do man. I get the black-tie thing but you should be able to do either version, flats or heels".

Away from the footwear controversy, the screening attended by Kristen Stewart proved to be a success story at Cannes.
