Elle Fanning Fainted at Cannes Films Festival, and Blamed It on This Surprising Reason
Cannes Festival is one of the most iconic events in the film industry where superstars from around the world gather together to celebrate the art and diversity of cinema. But probably what makes this event so iconic is the fashion element as actors put forward their best foot — and their best outfit — to promote their films.
Among the most unforgettable looks from this year’s Cannes Film Festival was Elle Fanning’s. The renowned jury members, Elle Fanning, descended on the red carpet in a gorgeous blush gown with a delicate tulle cape on top.
While the showstopping outfit turned heads on the red carpet, it later caused problems for the actress who fainted later during the event and was rushed out of the venue by security. The famous actress later took to Instagram to assure fans that she’s fine and the fainting spell was brought on by the tight-fitted dress. Ah, the price you pay for beauty.
On Monday night, Elle Fanning gave the audience a brief scare at the Cannes Film Festival after she reportedly collapsed and fell from her chair while attending the Chopard Trophee dinner.
The Maleficent star suddenly lost consciousness, sending a wave of panic across the room. As the audience gasped in horror, security rushed to the actress’ aid and escorted her out of the venue. Even Thierry Fremaux, the festival director, who was on stage, cut his speech short to tend to Elle.
Fortunately, Elle was seated beside her sister, Dakota Fanning, who immediately came to her rescue after the incident. Dakota helped her sister get back on her feet before they were whisked away to the medics to check her condition. The ceremony briefly came to a halt after Elle’s fainting episode as her co-stars rushed to help the actress.
The renowned actor Colin Firth also leaped to his feet to offer assistance to Elle. Marion Cotillard even placed her hand over Fanning’s chest to ensure her heart was still beating before being escorted out by the security.
After the event, Elle posted on her Instagram account to address the fainting episode and reassured her fans that she was “all good”. The actress blamed the incident on the fit of her dress. Apparently, the beautiful bridal gown she wore was too tight around the waist, causing her to lose consciousness.
Before the fainting episode, Elle graced the red carpet in her stunning Prada gown the featured a corseted waist adorned with precious stones. Fans speculated that the tight corset may have restricted her breathing and blood circulation.
Meanwhile, January Jones left a comment on Elle’s post in an attempt to lighten the situation. The actress asked why Elle didn’t have any smelling salts on her if she was planning to wear such an uncomfortable dress, to which Elle responded “Amen”. Jones was referring to a popular inhalant used to revive someone from unconsciousness.
Despite the fainting episode, Elle Fanning says she’s doing well right now, and her health is in good shape. Moreover, the actress is excited to reprise her role as Princess Aurora, who’s soon to be crowned as the Queen in Maleficent’s second installment.
Maleficent II: Mistress of Evil is set to release on October 18, 2019. Elle also teases the new fantasy film will feature an intense adventure with Angelina Jolie as they face and defeat their adversaries. The two characters will also form new alliances to protect the kingdom of Moors.
