Kristen Stewart isn’t here for sexist fashion rules at cannes
Talking to The Hollywood Reporter; Stewart said
There’s definitely a distinct dress code, right? People get very upset at you if you don’t wear heels or something.”
They do indeed. In 2015, Cannes faced backlash after women were reportedly barred from a red carpet premiere — for Todd Hayes’s pro-LGBTQ romance Carol, no less — because they were wearing flat shoes.
But I feel like you can’t ask people that any more. It’s just kind of a given. If you’re not asking guys to wear heels and a dress, you cannot ask me either.”
