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

Telling reporters back in 2017 that found the rules outdated Stewart has been vocal about dressing the way she pleases.

Filmmaker Rohena Gera, who was among the 82 women who protested against gender gap at the 71st Cannes Film Festival, says it was a very moving experience to express solidarity against the "barriers" that women face across the world in different ways.

The screen siren looked incredible in the clingy long-sleeved garment which fell just above her knees to display her slender pins.

The festival has seen mostly clear skies, but Monday rain fell off and on throughout the day and red carpet photographers juggled cameras and umbrellas at Lee's well-received premiere.

About the incident, Kristen said, "Things have to change immediately". You can not come in.' Then (I'm going to say), 'Neither is my friend.

She further continued, "I feel like you can't ask that anymore, but it's still a given". The girl plays the lead in a survival story together with her father, enacted by Angel Leonel Corral, in a country with drug problems strongly rooted in the whole society.

For years now, Cannes has been criticised for their strict dress code for women - which includes a "no flats" rule that make our feet hurt just thinking about it.
