Also ebbing any heartbreak? Her amazing couture dress! Fanning modeled a blush-hued Zuhair Murad Couture dress with floral embroidery and visible corseting both on the red carpet and for her upgraded “prom photo.” Adding even more glitz, she accessorized with Tiffany & Co. jewels, including a diamond and tourmaline necklace and multiple eye-popping cocktail rings.
