American actress and fashion model Mary Elle Fanning 21, a member of this year’s jury at the Cannes film festival, said she fainted at a gala dinner this week, blaming a “tight dress” she wore at her “time of the month”.
Fanning who is also the younger sister of actress Dakota Fanning said on Instagram Monday: “Oops, had a fainting spell tonight in my 1950’s Prada prom dress but it’s all good.”
According to Variety, Elle collapsed and fell off of her chair during a speech. Her sister Dakota Fanning, who was seated next to her, helped her to her feet and the two were “whisked” away by security.
