Elle Fanning was spotted in Cannes, France, on Tuesday, May 21, the day after she shocked a room full of celebrities when she fainted during a dinner. The actress was photographed smiling, waving and wearing an oversized dress while leaving the Hotel Martinez.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, the tiny star, who just turned 21 in April, has been going non-stop since the annual film festival kicked off on May 14. She is serving as a jury member this year, making her the youngest to ever take on the role. However, as part of her duties, she has participated in as many as four events a day during the two-week festival — and she still has another week to go.
The hectic pace caught up with Fanning at the May 20 Chopard jewelry dinner. To the surprise of other famous guests, the star of The Beguiled and Maleficent collapsed and fell off her chair just as festival director Thierry Fremaux was introducing actor Francois Civil.
Elle, who was sitting next to sister Dakota Fanning, was quickly led away by security.
Later, she gave a big thumbs-up in a picture she posted to Instagram, but she admitted her wardrobe choice and the timing of the dinner likely did her in.
“Oops, had a fainting spell tonight in my 1950’s Prada prom dress but it’s all good!! #dresstootight #timeofthemonth,” she posted.
Dressing For Comfort
The next day, Fanning wasn’t messing around with her health and chose this oversized dress.
Letting It All Hang Out
She appeared much more at ease than she did the evening before.
Before she fainted, Fanning’s eyes looked heavy as she marched down the red carpet in her tight Prada dress before dinner.
Many in the audience were so surprised when Fanning fainted that the room went quiet. Colin Firth, seated at a table nearby, jumped to his feet to help after seeing her go down.
Actress Marion Cotillard could be seen gasping and placing her hand over her heart as security lead Fanning away.
Luckily, Fanning looks in much better spirits after the dinner debacle!
