I’m not sure if you remember yesterday. Do you? It was a Wednesday, if that helps. You were one day further away from the weekend, but also one day further away from death. Is that ringing a bell? Wednesday? In any case, yesterday we discussed how you can (Cannes) — and I’m whispering now — probably take a selfie on the Cannes red carpet if you want to, and it’s fine. Well, today I have more Cannes drama for you, are you ready?

Marion Cotillard wore flats …

… on the red carpet!

Oh my god. I know what you’re thinking. “Marion Cotillard? The same Marion Cotillard who once said , ‘I think we’re lied to about a number of things. We see other towers of the same kind being hit by planes. Are they burned? There was a tower, I believe it was in Spain, which burnt for 24 hours. It never collapsed. None of these towers collapsed. And there [in New York], in a few minutes, the whole thing collapsed.’”

Yes! That Marion Cotillard!

She appeared on the red carpet to promote her upcoming spy thriller 355, a film that also features Jessica Chastain, Penelope Cruz, and Lupita Nyong’o. On her feet? Not heels as Cannes demands, . (In that drama, women were for wearing flats to the world premiere of Carol. The festival “that it is obligatory for all women to wear high-heels to red-carpet screenings.”) (Julia Roberts .) (And Kristen Stewart in 2017, but still wore heels.)

Instead of heels, Cotillard lace-up flat boots.


Heels on the red carpet? Just another Cannes “rule” that you not only Cannes break, but that you should.

Marion Cotillard Broke a Sacred Cannes Rule
