Julia Roberts Walked The Cannes Film Festival Red Carpet Barefoot

Could this be in protest of Cannes' strict dress-code rules?

Julia Roberts looked stunning in black as she walked the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival for the premiere of Money Monster…but she had a secret beneath her Armani Privé gown!


Yep, besides a chic black pedicure and sparkly toe ring, Julia Roberts was entirely barefoot.

Now we’ve all likely felt the pinch of high heels and longed to kick them off, but is there more than sore feet to Julia’s barefoot look?

In 2015, Cannes Film Festival organisers faced scrutiny after allegedly turning away a handful of women in their 50s from the screening of Carol after being told their flat footwear wasn’t appropriate.

​Screen Daily reported multiple guests, some older with medical conditions, were denied access to the anticipated world-premiere screening for wearing rhinestone flats.

Festival organisers have confirmed that it is obligatory for all women to wear high-heels to red-carpet screenings.

While she did initially arrive at the event wearing black peep toe heels they were soon nowhere to be seen. Whether the look was in rebellion against the strict dress code, or a mere matter of sore soles the actress still looked stunning and to be quite honest, a lot more comfy!
