@ElleFanning has tried to embrace doing things her own way, with proud Elle-ness, even if it strikes others as strange. For instance, senior prom. Fanning and her best friend, Cassio, had planned for weeks to be each other’s dates. Then Fanning learned she had to go to #Cannes and wouldn’t be able to make the dance. She had a crazy notion: What if they both went to France and made it their own version of prom? They did, and Elle wore her prom dress to the red carpet, and Cassio wore his prom tux, and it was a great time—a time so good they do not like to talk about it, because they think they’ll never have so much fun again.
