According to the trade publication, Dakota helped her younger sister to her feet as Colin Firth quickly offered his assistance and Marins on Cotillard sat with her hand on her heart nearby. The Fanning sisters were led out of the event by security, reports Variety.

Though it was likely a scary moment for Elle, she later took to Instagram to assure fans she was OK and blamed the incident on both her period and her snug dress.

Elle does seem to have fully recovered, as she was spotted leaving her hotel on Tuesday morning looking happy and healthy in a blue-and-white dress and jacket. She was also on hand to see the president of this year’s jury, Alejandro Gonzalez, be awarded with the Commander of the Order of Arts and Letters.
