The Cannes Film Festival is red carpet glamour and money, lots of money. It’s favourite cinephile festival of the luxury firms and that guests lead to releases is monitored in detail… Perhaps with too much details. The news of this issue being prohibition of entering a group of fifty women for not wearing shoes in the enclosure.
It happened during the premiere of “Carol”, the new tape of Rooney Mara and Cate Blanchett. A group of women was about to enjoy the film pass when a public relations prevented them from entering the grounds to consider that his shoe was not worthy of Cannes.
And it is true. The Festival has a very strict label regarding what guests can take: women must wear heels and men bow tie. A dress code that seems not to affect the big stars but less popular guests.
According to Screen Daily, is not an isolated fact but that many women has prevented them entering the Festival for not wearing high heels, so some guests attest as filmmaker Asif Kapadia. The director of the documentary by Amy Winhouse had a few hours on Twitter that his wife is one that has undergone the dress code of Cannes, but at the end they ended up letting him enter.
As I’ve said before, this happens to the lesser-known guests. Which celebrities skip the dress code When they want to. Reviewing the looks of Inès de la Fressange, in his last appearances, both this year and last, the Frenchwoman has paraded down the red carpet in flat shoes. And although the case of Ines is the most striking, it is not the only. Uma Thurman also a few years ago decided to combine his Chanel Couture dress with a simple flat sandals. Two examples that glamour is not at odds with the flat shoe.
