Julia Roberts Went Barefoot on the Cannes Red Carpet

May 12, 2016

Julia Roberts has no time for the stuffy dress codes and fashion restrictions of the red carpet, the Cannes Film Festival dress code be damned.

Alas, Roberts later shod her feet in a pair of platform peep-toe pumps, but the spirit of her red carpet rebellion will live on in our hearts forever.
