Sridevi to be honored with an eminent award at Cannes Film Festival

Sridevi to be honored with an eminent award at Cannes Film Festival”

Yesterday afternoon, Kristen Stewart was on the red carpet at Cannes making her way to the screening of BlacKkKlansman.

After Kristen passed the first bank of photographers at the red carpet, she took off the heels and made her way into the premiere with the shoes in her hands.

In case you don't remember, the French film festival's ridiculous ban on flat shoes made headlines in 2015 when a group of women were barred from entering for not wearing heels! This also helped her avoid any slips on the red carpet as we all know that rain, heels, and red carpet don't mix that well.

Formula 1's aero flip-flopping is comical says Sebastian Vettel
Red Bull's Christian Horner has already blasted the "half baked" new front wing design meant to boost overtaking next year. So I feel that if we understand that something is going wrong we should try to find a solution.

We can so relate to Kristen Stewart right now. But as she posed for the shutterbugs for pictures, she removed her stilettos and walked barefoot on the red carpet.

Walking arm in arm with 82 other women which included Kristen Stewart, Patty Jenkins, Salma Hayek, both she and Palme d'Or winning director Agnes Varda gave moving speeches that set the tone for the festival. "If you're not asking guys to wear heels and a dress, you can't ask me either".

The Twillight star, however, was applauded by the Twitterverse for her act of rebellion. "I get the black-tie thing but you should be able to do either version-flats or heels".

The Northern Irishman was only one shot inside the cut mark at the halfway stage, along with Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods. He shot 62, one off Rory McIlroy's course record, and wound up three shots out of the lead and in the penultimate group.

She added: 'I feel like you can't ask that anymore, but it's still a given.

She told Variety: "To hear the statistics out loud, ' she told Variety, "Spoken from the mouth of someone like Cate [Blanchett], and then to look down and see everyone together".

This is the first Cannes festival since allegations of sexual abuse were first made against producer Harvey Weinstein previous year.
