Jane Fonda Wears Silver Ballet Flats on the Red Carpet at Cannes

Leave it to Jane Fonda, the definition of a Hollywood legend, to make ballet flats work at a black-tie affair. The actress arrived on the red carpet in Cannes, France, for the annual (and very glitzy) Cannes Film Festival wearing a pair of under-$300 silver ballet flats from New York-based shoe and accessories brand Margaux. They’re still available to shop.

Fonda stepped on the carpet for the premiere of Le Deuxième Acte (or The Second Act for non-French speakers) on May 14, wearing a black beaded Elie Saab jumpsuit and a glamorous leopard-print coat by Forte Forte. She accessorized with equally extravagant accessories: a stunning collar-style necklace, a slender diamond-encrusted bracelet, a matching cocktail ring all by Pomellato—and a pair of Margaux’s Mary Jane flats in the Silver Mirror colorway. She was styled by Cristina Ehrlich for the occasion.

The flats are still in stock in most sizes and retail for $295. Their appearance on the carpet marks a notable change in the required dress code for festival attendees. While it was once required to wear stiletto heels on the carpet—an archaic rule actress Kristen Stewart famously decried by taking off her shoes in protest while on the carpet in 2017—the festival’s official website now states that “elegant shoes, with or without heels, are required,” and that “trainers are forbidden,” expressly.
