Although Stewart, who was a member of the film festival's jury this year, didn't confirm whether she removed her heels in protest of the French festival's rule forbidding women from wearing flats, it was assumed that she did it on objective as she has spoken in the past against the arcane dress code.
Finally, no list would be complete without mention of U.S. actress Kristen Steward who removed her shoes as she walked the red carpet at Cannes on May 14.
She was present for the Monday night gala premiere of "BlacKkKlansman", Spike Lee's new film.
The pictures of the actress taking her shoes off literally made headline news around the world, and we can't help but think how ridiculous that is. But her move was meant as more than just a stunt.
In 2015, it was reported that women had been turned away from red carpet premieres for wearing flat shoes. While Awards Season also offers us a fair share of mindboggling precious stones, the great thing about Cannes is that we're treated to a mesmerizing variety of white or multi-coloured sparklers for 12 blissful days in a row. Whether it was her publicised relationship with Robert Pattison or her role in Certain Women, Kristen has successfully shed her girl next door image and established herself as a phenomenal actor.
The 28-year-old has been a vocal critic of the red carpet's policy.
Last year, Stewart - who's been known to wear trainers with dresses on the red carpet - spoke about the event's fashion rules.
"Things have to change immediately", she said of the wardrobe guidelines. You can not come in, ' then [I'm going to say], 'Neither is my friend.
"You just can't ask me to do something that you're not asked to do man".
"We shouldn't be wearing high heels anyway", she added.
