Jennifer Lawrence hit the Cannes Film Festival red carpet in a very unexpected shoe.
On May 21, the Oscar-winning actor hit the Croisette in a crimson Christian Dior couture gown with a ruffled bust, corseted bustier, and elegant shawl draped across her arms. Paired with a statement diamond choker necklace and subtle wine-stained lips, the 32-year-old Huger Games star embodied Old Hollywood glamour for the premiere of Anatomy of a Fall, save for one minor, deliciously relatable detail.
Underneath Lawrence’s gown was a pair of everyday black flip-flops, which could be seen as the actor descended the Palais des Festivals steps in photos from the event—and we can’t help but think Kristen Stewart would be proud. The Twilight star is known for kicking off her shoes on the French red carpet and has spoken out about the strict dress code, which at one point reportedly required women to wear heels.
“There’s definitely a distinct dress code… People get very upset at you if you don’t wear heels or whatever,” Stewart told The Hollywood Reporter in 2017. “If you’re not asking guys to wear heels and a dress, then you can’t ask me either.”
Jennifer Lawrence is in town to celebrate Bread and Roses, a documentary she produced exploring the lives of three Afghan women following the Taliban takeover of Kabul in 2021.
Earlier in the day, Lawrence attended a photocall for the film wearing a netted Christian Dior dress with strappy detail layered underneath its open back. Stylist Jamie Mizrahi paired the sheer look with a sleek Longines watch and a pair of drop earrings by Alison Lou.
