You’ve probably heard this by now, but the Cannes Film Festival pissed a lot of people off this week when some women were turned away from a screening on Sunday because they weren’t wearing high heels. Apparently heels are a requirement at Cannes, which means I will never be going to Cannes in my lifetime. Everyone thinks it’s bullshit, especially Emily Blunt, who hates wearing heels (but clearly did so for the occasion).
From US Weekly:
“Yeah, that’s very disappointing,” the Devil Wears Prada actress said. “To think there are these waves of equality and waves of people discovering that women are so fascinating and interesting to watch and bankable [on screen].”
“Everyone should wear flats to be honest,” she added. “We shouldn’t be wearing high heels anyways. That’s my point of view. I just prefer wearing Converse sneakers.”
Well, I don’t necessarily think Converse are right for Cannes, but then again, why the hell not? You’re going to see a bunch of movies, so what does it matter what you wear? I suppose if you’re doing the red carpet and are some major star turning up for a photo op, that might be something, but in the end, who gives a shit? Flats 4 lyfe, as the kids (maybe?) say.

Johnny Depp could show up at Cannes in those thousand year old, ratty-ass boots he loves so much and nobody would say sh*t about it The ladies that were turned away with over 50 and wearing flats: I guess they were lucky not to get shot! Does anyone need anymore proof of ageism and sexism?! If I were one of those flats-wearing women, I’d make a lot of noise and I’d sue for discrimination.
Laughing at “thousand year old, ratty-ass boots”. Love it!
