Elevator Shoes at the Cannes Film Festival for French Actor Edouard Baer

Tuesday May 8th marked the beginning of the 71st annual Cannes Film Festival, with the role of Master of Ceremonies going to French actor, and previous host, Edouard Baer. Being just 5 foot 9, it would come as no surprise if he chose to wear luxury elevator shoes at this most glamorous of events…

Stars from the glittering world of film and television have been and will be stepping out onto the famous Promenade de la Croisette to celebrate the 71st edition of the Cannes Film Festival, which runs from May 8th to May 19th 2018. The film that kicked off this year’s world-renowned festival is the drama directed by Iranian director, Asghar Farhadi, Everybody Knows and starring Spanish husband and wife A-listers, Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz, who arrived on the red carpet at the Grand Theatre Lumiere looking radiant and elegant as always.

The president of this year’s jury is the award winning Cate Blanchett. And joining her on the jury are fellow stars of the screen from the worlds of writing, directing and acting; Chang Chen, Ava Duvernay, Robert Guédiguian, Khadja Nin, Lea Seydoux, Kristen Stewart, Andrei Zvyagintsev and Denis Villeneuve. The Master of Ceremonies is the French Actor, and previous Master of Ceremonies, Edouard Baer, star of Asterix and Obelix, who kicked off the opening ceremony on Tuesday and will resume the duties at the festival’s closing ceremony.

The 2018 festival promises, as always, to be filled with glitz and glamor, surrounded by the elegance of the French Riviera. And for such a highly regarded event, it’s only fitting that the stars will be wearing the finest fashions and the most luxurious footwear. In this instance, stars like Edouard Baer, who’s only around 5 foot 9, could increase his height and maintain his charm by wearing stylish, formal elevator shoes that are handcrafted in Italy using only the finest materials.

Other actors may appear tall on the red carpet and on the big screen but many of them turn to elevator shoes to increase their height and boost their confidence. Spanish actor, Antonio Banderas always dresses in a way that makes him look taller than he really is. Being under 5 foot 9, the A-list star chooses well-tailored outfits and pairs them with luxury handcrafted Italian elevator shoes.

Other actors who might find themselves lacking in height should take a leaf out of Banderas’s book and increase their height discreetly with elevator shoes. These elegant styles of shoes, sneakers and boots can increase height up to 6 inches. The summer styles will help to keep them comfortable and looking sleek whether they’re walking the red carpet or sipping drinks at the bar.
