There has been a lot of controversy recently about women feeling pressured to wear heels.
Julia Roberts arrived at Cannes and was quick to ditch her shoes and walked the red carpet completely barefoot. Followed by Lady Victoria Hervey who openly stepped on the red carpet wearing flats in defiance of the strict rules that saw people turned away.
