Actress Kristen Stewart who gained fame with her hit performance in blockbuster film series "Twilight" was last spotted a the Cannes red carpet in a silver and black short dress with glittery work all over that. 

While many would have just zoomed in on her dress and thought of ways to replicate the style-- there’s something else that took the guests and paparazzi by shock.

In a move to signal against the Cannes’ ‘no flats’ policy, Kristen walked barefoot at the red carpet. She took off her shoes, a pair of black Louboutins and climbed up the stairs of the red carpet with ease.

In a roundtable premiere of “BlackKkKlansman”, has been a vocal critic of the red carpet’s heels-only policy for women. Last year, she said, “It’s just like you simply cannot ask me to do something that you are not asking him [to do]. I get the black-tie thing but you should be able to do either version—flats or heels.”

Many on Twitter applauded Stewart’s act of rebellion while some felt that the act overshadowed her.

Meanwhile, Indian actresses are taking the red carpet by a storm as after Deepika, Kangana and Aishwarya now it's Sonam's turn to stun one and all.
