Leave It To KStew To Break All The Fashion Rules At The Cannes Film Festival

Are those sneakers on the red carpet?

Just to refresh your memory, Cannes Film Festival faced some serious backlash just last year, after women were actually barred from red carpet screenings for not wearing heels. 

So how does a badass like Kristen Stewart retaliate? By wearing Vans at the Opening Gala Dinner, of course.

Stewart attended the dinner in another white Chanel crop top (is this her new signature red carpet look?) paired with a high-low cashmere knit mini skirt by Barrie and—wait for it—black-and-white checkered Vans sneakers. Yes, she wore a pair of Vans on the red carpet.  While her outfit may have been more on the casual side, her smoky eye and vampy red lip gave her overall look a sultry and glam touch.

The actress had quite a few outfit changes yesterday. She started off with a casually elegant look for the festival’s opening, later changing into a sheer blouse/organza skirt combo for the Café Society premiere (both looks by Chanel, bien sûr), before putting on her Vans and calling it a day. Also—hello, is that (a very small amount of) color we see? 

We always knew Stewart was a bit of a rule breaker.
