Emulating a nymph that could have floated onto the red carpet straight out of a mythical woodland, Fanning stunned fans in a floor-length, foliage-green gown by Gucci. The dress was adorned with drooping blooms in muted pastel tones and even featured a stream of crimson ribbons from the sleeves to symbolise the princess’s pricked finger.
Fanning posted an image of herself at the premiere on her Instagram, along with a tribute to the team behind the film and her look on the day.
“Well… well… At age 14 I received a phone call that changed my life. I was cast as the Sleeping Beauty to Angelina Jolie’s iconic Maleficent. Premiering the sequel last night made me feel all the feels. Standing proud with two women I look up to in every way, knowing we created three powerful characters who use their strength in different ways. I still have goosebumps!” she wrote.
