Elle Fanning on the Fashion Fantasy Behind Her Cannes Looks: ‘You Have to Bring the Dramatics’

“I have so much fun with it,” the L’Oréal Paris International Spokesperson tells PEOPLE of working with her stylist Samantha McMillen on her show-stopping Cannes wardrobe

Preparing for the Cannes red carpet is a marathon, not a sprint. Just ask Elle Fanning, who spends months concepting her fashion moments with stylist Samantha McMillen.

“I have so much fun with it,” Elle tells PEOPLE at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival. “Samantha and I work closely together on coming up with the looks and designing clothes in our head, and I really enjoy the process.”

That process can be “time consuming” according to Fanning, 24, who says she collaborates closely with her hair, makeup and styling teams on “what character” she’ll channel on the carpet.

“I’ve always loved fashion, and Cannes is probably the biggest and the best red carpet in the world,” the L’Oréal Paris International Spokesperson says. “There’s nothing like it — it’s so wide on both sides so you have to think about the 360-degree view of the look.”

Fanning adds that there’s “no hiding” on the famous Palais des Festivals carpet and steps.

“It’s like the train has to be perfect — all around look has to bring the dramatics in some way.”

And bring the dramatics she did, hitting the Top Gun: Maverick premiere in a custom blush Armani Privé gown featuring intricate beading, a tulle overlay, fishtail train and romantic sweetheart neckline. She topped off the look with a dazzling Chopard diamond necklace and fabric from the dress tied into her romantic side-swept waves styled by Jenda.

Elle Fanning Reacts to Tom Cruise’s Sweet Shout-Out at Cannes: I Was ‘Pinching Myself’

Elle Fanning tells PEOPLE that she “was freaking out” and “sort of crying/blushing” while Tom Cruise praised her Wednesday at the Cannes Film Festival

Elle Fanning is still recovering after her shout-out from Tom Cruise.

Speaking to the audience at the premiere of his new movie Top Gun: Maverick Wednesday at the Cannes Film Festival, Cruise, 59, praised Elle, 24, while sharing an early memory of the “very talented actress.”

“And it’s wonderful to see you here, and see your sister,” Cruise added, referencing Elle’s older sister Dakota Fanning, with whom he starred in 2005’s War of the Worlds.

Elle — who smiled widely from her seat during Cruise’s speech — told PEOPLE after the event that she “was freaking out” and “sort of crying/blushing” during the sweet moment.

“I was waking up pinching myself. Did that really happen last night? Was I dreaming?” adds the actress and L’Oréal Paris International Spokesperson.

During his speech, Cruise praised Elle and Dakota, 28, for their acting talent and ambition at a young age, after first meeting them as children.

Falling Into a Trance With Elle Fanning

The actor, who has been working since she was two, taps into new powers on two TV shows: season two of The Great and limited series The Girl From Plainville.

In both The Girl From Plainville and The Great, there are moments when a close-up of Elle Fanning’s face takes up the entire frame, her blue eyes staring directly into the camera, emotion rippling through her face as her character comes to a shocking realization. In season two of The Great, it’s when Catherine discovers that her husband, Peter, slept with her mother and then accidentally killed her. In Plainville, it’s when her character, Michelle Carter, is convicted of involuntary manslaughter for using text messages to pressure her boyfriend to commit suicide.

“Now that I’m thinking about it, cameras are always really, really close to my face,” says Fanning with a laugh during our conversation for Little Gold Men. “You kind of have to drown everything out when you’re doing those scenes…. You have to put on blinders, and you’re just like in this trance with the camera. I kind of enjoy those moments.”

It’s not just those brief moments that depend wholly on Fanning—both series only work, and work well, because of the performances that Fanning is able to deliver as the lead. “I think they mark a really special moment in my career,” says the 24-year-old actor, who has been working since two years old, first playing the younger version of her sister Dakota Fanning’s characters in the film I Am Sam and the miniseries Taken. “In child acting, those roles are designed to be observant. I was very conscious of that when I was younger, and I was kind of envious of the other actors that I would work with because they’re getting to be wild and experiment…. These two roles have allowed me to get to take action in a real way—and take action in my career.”

Fanning’s notable career mostly revolved around film as she grew up, but since signing on to The Great, TV has become the priority. Though that means she has less time to shoot movies, it’s a sacrifice she’s happy to make for what felt like a unique opportunity, even if it was for the small (streaming) screen. “I feel like these shows have given me a challenge that no movies that I’ve come across lately have held,” she says. “These characters couldn’t be better in the sense of challenging me.”

In The Great, Fanning plays an outlandish version of the famous Russian ruler Catherine the Great, who overthrows her husband (played by Nicholas Hoult) to rule Russia and attempt to bring it into a new era of education and enlightenment. Through most of the second season, which hit Hulu in November, her character is pregnant, forced to rule a nation while also keeping her troublesome husband in line and dealing with odd pregnancy cravings for dirt and rusty nails. “With Catherine, I felt like my acting muscle—wherever that is or whatever that is or how stupid it sounds—it really grew and I became less embarrassed,” she says. “I really had become a little bit more uninhibited.”

Why Elle Fanning Never Reached Out to Michelle Carter Before ‘The Girl From Plainville’: It Didn’t Feel ‘Appropriate’

Elle Fanning has grown up on screen, starring in dozens of movies since her film debut two decades ago. Starting in 2020, she’s gained acclaim as Empress Catherine II in Hulu comedy “The Great.” But two weeks after wrapping production on Season 3, she dove into a much more serious project, Hulu’s “The Girl From Plainville,” playing another real person: Michelle Carter, the teen who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter for encouraging her boyfriend, Conrad Roy III, to end his life.

The case played out in the media when Carter was indicted in 2015. Fanning is also a producer on the eight-part series, now streaming, which takes a deep dive into the relationship between Carter and Roy (portrayed by Colton Ryan) — the side of the story that didn’t make any headlines.

I remember watching the case. I was 19. The media painted this situation in a very one-dimensional way: She was the black widow — a manipulative young woman — and he was the victim, which he very much [was], but we didn’t get to know him. We didn’t get to know Conrad or his backstory or see the amazing man he was. When they came to me to possibly do this and be a producer, I was hesitant because [most of] these people are alive and this is a story that is very sensitive, and I really had to think hard if it was the right thing to do. Ultimately, I decided to do it because the people involved are people that I knew cared about it that way. I felt that we could tell this story in an unbiased way, in a very modern world about something that is very modern: technology and how to navigate that and the false intimacy that it creates for everyone, which I certainly have experienced.

What steps did you take to embody Michelle Carter?

I watched a lot of “Glee.” She was a huge “Glee” fan. I had seen the show, but I watched a lot of it on set. Reading the pilot, in the last scene she’s singing “Make You Feel My Love,” mimicking [“Glee” star] Lea Michele’s grief. Lea’s grief was real in the show; she’s also mourning her real-life boyfriend [Cory Monteith, who died in 2013]. I’ve never met her, but I know every mannerism that she does in that scene. I have a legal pad of notes. I wrote down every time she blinked, every time she moved her hand with each word, to mimic the emotion. It was a real exercise. I felt really connected to her, because I feel like I’ve seen her grieve. It was very meta.
