Cannes Film Festival High Heel Rule

The artistic director of the Festival de Cannes apologized after the controversy generated after women who didn’t wear high heels were not allowed to set foot on the red carpet last Tuesday.

But he tried to downplay the controversy that arose after spread through social networks that the security services of the Festival had prevented the entry of some guests who were with flat shoes for the screening of the film, Carol, starring Cate Blanchett.

— May have been overzealous —, he argued, referring to the security guards.

The story, which originally appeared in the magazine Screen International, caused hundreds of angry tweets. The producer Valeria Richter, who has a partially amputated foot, told the BBC that was stopped four times because she was wearing flat shoes as he entered to see Gus Van Sant’s film, The Sea of Trees, with Matthew McConaughey Saturday night.

The subject broke into including a press conference from the cast of the movie Sicario Canadian Director Denis Villeneuve, with Emily Blunt, Benicio del Toro and Josh Brolin

— Frankly, everyone should wear flat shoes, said Blunt, who was walking with difficulty just to be using very high heels.

— We shouldn’t wear heels — commented the British actress in response to a reporter’s question.

Villeneuve hastened to add, triggering a widespread laughter:

— In protest, Benicio, Josh and I are going to climb the staircase in high heels tonight on ANSWERMBA.

The festival issued a statement on Tuesday in which denied that there was a formal rule to determine which women must wear shoes.
