Cannes film fest chiefs sign gender equality charter

Arriving in the rain with her own private umbrella holder, the 28-year-old star walked up the steps in a sexy metallic silver Chanel Couture dress, while clutching her red-soled heels, presumably Christian Louboutins.

Lewis Film Awards held at Cannes will celebrate women from the film Industry all over the world.

Hey Cannes Film Festival, just so you know, Kristen Stewart is not here for your controversial "high heels only" policy. This is not the first time that she spoke about this tradition at the fest.

Earlier in the week, Kristen had spoken about her delight at being a part of the proceeding at Cannes and praised Cate for speaking out on women's rights at the women's march on Saturday.

Still, it's been a persistent rumor for years that high heels are a requirement for women on the red carpet, and even a casual glance around evening screenings at Cannes reveal that most female guests are still sporting them.

Swiss law, however, allows anyone of sound mind who has consistently expressed a wish to die to request AVD. On Wednesday, he said: One should be free to choose the death, when death is at an appropriate time.

After passing the first junket of photographers, the actress chose to exit the red carpet in comfort, taking her heels into her hands and making her way up the famed Palais stairs.

Kristen took the shutterbugs by surprise as she removed her black stilettos and walked bare footed. People get very upset at you if you don't wear heels or whatever'.

Many on Twitter applauded Stewart's act of rebellion. If you're not asking guys to wear heels and a dress then you can't ask me either'.

She further continued, "I feel like you can't ask that anymore, but it's still a given".

This is the first Cannes festival since allegations of sexual abuse were first made against producer Harvey Weinstein previous year.
