Elle Fanning’s hectic Cannes schedule seems to have finally caught up to her, as RadarOnline.com has learned she fainted at the Chopard jewelry dinner Monday night, May 20.

The tiny star, who just turned 21 in April, has been going non-stop since the annual film festival kicked off on May 14. Fanning is serving as a jury member this year, making her the youngest Cannes juror ever. She takes part in as many as four events a day during the two-week festival, and she still has another week to go.

According to Variety, Fanning, 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 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.
