15 Flat Shoes That Will Look Great Even At Cannes Red Carpet

In a shocking, regressive and dogmatic move, guards at Cannes red carpet turned away female guests from screening of Carol, starring Cate Blanchett for not wearing high heels! Dazed digital magazine reported that the women were banned from the Cannes red carpet for wearing flat shoes in spite of having invitations.The women were in their 50s and some even suffered from medical conditions that made it necessary for them to be in flats.

The timing of such a decision is extremely unfortunate especially when fashion is having a 70s moment. It is not only the retro flares, denims and jazzy prints that define the period but the core essence of 1970s fashion lies in its rebellious and libertarian spirit.

Here are 15 stylish and trendy alternatives to high heels that will not only look great at the Cannes red carpet but can give a hard kick to those officials who made up such atrocious rules.
