Cannes Film Festival is all about making fashion statements, while some chose to do that, there were others like Kristen Stewart making political statements at the famed red carpet.

However, according to the Hollywood Reporter, festival director Thierry Fremaux later said that the existence of a high heel policy was just a rumor.
