If you're lucky enough to be attending the Cannes film festival in the south of France, we hope you packed your high heels! Female festival goers wearing flats were reportedly turned away from a screening of Carol on Sunday night, according to ScreenDaily.

Of course we know that heels look glamorous, but not everyone wants to wear the sometimes painful pumps for hours...or maybe physically can't. But even older women with disabilities who had on rhinestone flats in lieu of stilettos weren't given a pass.

Actress Emily Blunt thought it was a bunch of BS, and told reporters so during a press conference for her movie Sicario. "I think everyone should wear flats, to be honest. We shouldn't wear high heels anymore," she said. "That's just my point of view--I prefer to wear Converse sneakers." Preach!

Festival officials didn't comment on the controversy, but did confirm to ScreenDaily that it's policy for women to wear heels. If they're going to force all the ladies to wear heels, can they at least give out Band Aids and foot massages at Cannes too?
