If you've been keeping an eye on the goings-on at the Cannes Film Festival over the last week, then no doubt you've seen some of the fuss about Kristen Stewart. She was apparently not sanctioned for taking off her heels. Kristen has been previously vocal about the dress code.

The high split of her gown allowed her to show off her lean legs, which were elongated by a pair of silver heels.

The festival has earlier received flak for their strict dress code that frowns upon women who refrain from donning sky-high heels.

"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". You can not come in, ' then [I'm going to say], 'Neither is my friend.

"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", she explained.

It is the first year that there has been a Palestinian Pavilion at the Cannes Film Festival, and Dr Ihab Bseiso, the Palestinian Minister of Culture, said: "While we are representing Palestine for the first time at the Cannes Film Festival, we have received the bad news coming out of Palestine that unfortunately more than 60 people have lost their lives since yesterday". According to Newsweek, Julia Roberts also walked the red carpet barefoot in 2016.
