NEW DELHI: A day after actress Salma Hayek appeared on a panel at the 68th Cannes International Film Festival to talk about misogyny in Hollywood, the festival's organizers banned women from wearing anything other than high heels on the red carpet.

A group of women, who arrived at a screening for Cate Blanchett's latest film, Carol, were reportedly turned away because of their flat shoes, according to Screen Daily.

The New York Magazine in a tweet said this immediately set off a #showmeyourflats hashtag in solidarity.

It noted that actress Emily Blunt put it best, ?Everyone should wear flats to be honest. We should not be wearing high heels anyways. That is my point of view. I just prefer wearing Converse sneakers.?

Actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan had also stressed on gender equality with Hayek at the discussion organized by UN Women. Aishwarya also did a shoot for L?Or?al Paris with Eva Longoria, Natasha Poly and Li Bingbing for L?Oreal.

The Cannes film festival began on 13 May and will conclude on 24 May.

Meanwhile, the red carpet for Gurvinder Singh?s Punjabi film Chauthi Koot and Neeraj Ghaywan?s debut feature Masaan, which are the Indian films in the official UnCertain Regard, was graced by Indian ambassadors of L?Oreal Paris ? Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Sonam Kapoor and Katrina Kaif. Nandita Das was also present.

Film and theater veteran Shabana Azmi noted on how fashion was taking away the attention from cinema at the 68th Cannes International Film Festival. She said a film festival should be treated seriously and not as a fashion parade ground.

Azmi used her Twitter handle on 15 May to remind her fans and followers about the main motive behind holding a film festival. ?2day Cannes seems to b a clothes parade! It?s a serious film festival guys not a fashion event. Hw abt focusing on films n filmakers (sic),?
