Elle Fanning fainted while attending the 2019 Cannes Film Festival on Monday night.

According to Variety, the actress was sitting near her sister, Dakota Fanning, at the Chopard Trophee dinner when she collapsed and fell out of her chair. The crowd got quiet and the ceremony was paused briefly.

Witnesses told the outlet that Dakota helped Elle to her feet as Colin Firth quickly assisted. The sisters were then led out of the venue by security.

Elle took to Instagram later that night to share that she was doing well after the incident. She revealed that her dress was too tight and that is was that time of the month for her.

“Oops, had a fainting spell tonight in my 1950’s Prada prom dress but it’s all good!! #dresstootight#timeofthemonth,” Elle wrote.
