Sridevi to be honoured at Cannes Film Festival

Cannes Film Festival 2018 Cate Blanchett Michael B Jordan and Marion Cotillard make appearances on Day 6

Stewart had previously spoken against the festival's rules on female footwear. The red carpets of Cannes may be known for their outlandish fashions, but this year comfort trumps all, just ask Kristen Stewart.

She did this while heading to the gala premiere for Spike Lee's BlacKkKlansman.

Kristen took the shutterbugs by surprise as she removed her black stilettos and walked bare footed. During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, she made a statement about the dress code of women needing to wear heels. People get very upset at you if you don't wear heels or whatever'. "If you're not asking guys to wear heels and a dress, you can't ask me either".

He said fighters launched attacks form multiple directions, after which they overran several checkpoints in the city. But the defence ministry said the army had repulsed the attack, and "the security forces are now chasing the enemy".

"It's just like you simply can not ask me to do something that you are not asking him". This is not the first time that she spoke about this tradition at the fest. "I get the black-tie thing but you should be able to do either version-flats or heels". Looking on from the front row were members of this year's nine-person jury, among them Kristen Stewart and jury president Cate Blanchett, both of whom took part in Saturday's protest. We are writers, we are producers, we are directors, actresses, cinematogrpahers, talent agents, sales agents and al of us are involved in the cinematic arts.

The world's top festival also promised to be more transparent in its selection process after facing years of criticism over the lack of women directors in its main competition. What's important is that the 82 of us who stood there stood in solidarity with women from all professions, all countries.
