CANNES, France – US actress Elle Fanning, 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 keeping up a grueling schedule of movie-viewing and soirees at the glitzy French Riviera event, said on Instagram Monday: “Oops, had a fainting spell tonight in my 1950’s Prada prom dress but it’s all good.”
