Israel's massacre in Gaza reaches Cannes red carpet

Recently, Stewart stepped out at the Women in Motion Awards Dinner wearing a string of pearls on her eyes. Although she is a successful actor today, the actress always wanted to be either a director or screenwriter.

However, not having a film to represent didn't stop her from making headlines.

The 71st annual Cannes Film Festival is now being held from 8 to 19 May 2018.

Finally, no list would be complete without mention of USA actress Kristen Steward who removed her shoes as she walked the red carpet at Cannes on May 14. Don't believe us? Check these pictures out. She utilized the platform of Cannes Red Carpet to draw the world's attention towards Killing of Palestinians. But there's more to Kristen removing her heels than just discomfort.

The Cannes dress code became a controversial topic in 2015 when a number of women attending a premiere were stopped from entering for wearing flat soled shoes instead of high heels.

Kristen Stewart told the Hollywood Reporter a year ago:"If you're not asking guys to wear heels and a dress, you can not ask me either". "Things have to change immediately", she said as quoted by Vanity Fair in 2016. You can not come in.' Then (I'm going to say), 'Neither is my friend. You can not come in, ' then [I'm going to say], 'Neither is my friend. "Does he have to wear heels?'" "I understand the whole theme with black ties, but we need to allow women to walk without heels".

But it's not just a spectator sport of sartorial selections; the film festival has always been known for its illustrious line-up of films from around the world, providing a platform where the discovery of new talent and comebacks of more seasoned actors to former glory occur simultaneously.
