Stewart decided to make herself a little more comfortable, or, as comfortable as one can be when wearing a heavy silver mini-dress. Cannes has a controversial ban on flats for the red carpet, which Stewart has protested not once, but twice. In 2016, she wore often wore sneakers with her dress and changed into pumps just for photos. She also gave the finger during the photos. Marion Cotillard also broke the rules earlier this week.

“Things have to change immediately,” Stewart said at a roundtable discussion last year, according to Marie Claire. “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.
