Don’t let it bother you: walking on the red carpet can cause stress even for the most seasoned film star.
But for Elle Fanning, who recently got a place on the list of best-dressed celebrities of Vanity Fair 2019, the solution to calm those jitters of the awards show comes from a carcass of poultry.
According to WWD’s coverage of this year’s VF rankings: “[editor-in-chief Radhika] Jones said she was surprised to hear that Elle Fanning, who is on the list several times, kept chicken bones in her red carpet fairs for many years as a lucky charm . “
Fanning, whose “fashion marathon” at the Cannes film festival in May included more than a dozen designer looks, also confirmed her long-standing dependence on wishbones in her interview with the magazine.
On the other hand, the “Neon Demon” actress has never been exactly shy to embrace her peculiarities. She has often talked about her lifelong obsession with Marilyn Monroe in interviews, bought the old face cream and powder from the screen icon at an auction and downloaded a Marilyn Monroe app so she can quote the star when the mood strikes.
And Fanning is far from being the only superstitious star in Hollywood: Dame Helen Mirren has admitted that she regards ‘strippers’ as good omens, while Heidi Klum said she is saving a bag of her baby teeth for luck.
