Elle Fanning made her prom date the luckiest guy in the world when she flew him out to Cannes to make up for missing the big dance! Click through to see their adorable prom-style photo and her beautiful dress!
Elle Fanning, 18, may have had to skip her senior prom for Cannes, but she made up for it in spades! Elle flew her prom date out to France to be her escort during the film festival instead! Sure beats the school gym! Click through to see her designer “prom” dress from all angles in our gallery, and the sweetest pic with her date!
Elle may be a world-renowned movie star, but she’s still an 18-year-old kid in high school! The actress had her heart set on attending her senior prom, just like everyone else, but the dance coincided with promoting her new film, The Neon Demon, at Cannes. Poor Elle! And her poor date! But looking at their happy faces as she posed gleefully with him at Cannes on May 23, you can already tell they’ve gotten over the disappointment!
“💐Reliving my Senior Prom! Thank you, @basquitwat for flying out since I could not be home and making our prom night one to remember forever!” Elle captioned her photo of herself and her date (we wish she told us his name!) standing in classic prom photo pose: him standing behind her with his hands on her waist. Were there any angry parents staring daggers at him from off camera?
Kidding! When you go to Cannes, you fortunately get to skip all the awkwardness of prom, don’t you think? No terrible slow dances to KC & JoJo, no ill-fitting tuxes and dresses, no bad breath and no overpriced limos. Okay, maybe that last one! She fittingly included the hashtags: ProminCannes and PromOnTheRedCarpet on her post. Jealous!
As if her version of prom wasn’t fun enough, Elle was also rocking a positively exquisite couture gown from Zuhair Murad. The blush gown was embroidered with incredible pink flowers and green vines, accenting visible corset boning. To top it off? Tons of Tiffany’s jewels. She definitely puts all our prom photos to shame!
