Israeli minister's dress at Cannes stirs up controversy

Dress' bottom featured skyline of Jerusalem

Israel's far-right culture minister stirred up some major controversy with a dress she wore on the red carpet at Cannes on Wednesday.

Miri Regev, the culture minister, was dressed rather elegantly for the posh affair, reports The Hollywood Reporter and RT.com.

The bottom of Regev's dress featured the skyline of the Old City of Jerusalem, designed to honor the "50th anniversary of its liberation and unification," according to her press release, as cited by Haaretz.

The internet was quick to remind Regev that most of the international community regards east Jerusalem as being under Israeli occupation – despite the country claiming sovereignty over the entire city, reports RT.com.

The internet provided many alternative dresses for Regev, including one of a blood-soaked bottom half going up in flames. One showed an Israeli warplane conducting an airstrike.
