America's Lindsey Vonn claimed the women's International Ski Federation (FIS) World Cup super-G title after winning the discipline's season-ending race in Méribel.
Slovenia's Tina Maze ended up third in the discipline standings after taking up the same position in the race with a time of 1:08.50.
Vonn's victory sees her become the first woman to win both the super-G and downhill titles in five separate seasons.
"Anna put a lot of pressure on me," she said.
"I knew she was leading when I was at the top and I just skied as hard as I could.
"I was definitely on the limit, especially at the bottom.
"I just attacked and I had nothing to lose and I'm just thrilled with the win today and the second crystal globe this season."
The 30-year-old was unable to defend her Olympic downhill title at Sochi 2014 due to an ongoing knee injury and did not make her comeback until the World Cup in Lake Louise, Canada, last December where she topped the podium in her second start.
"I think this year was up-and-down," said Vonn.
"I didn't have a chance to get in a lot of training because of my injuries.
"But when I have training and I have confidence, I ski like I did this weekend."
Fenninger and Maze will now turn their attentions to the battle for the overall title ahead of this weekend's slalom and giant slalom races.
Maze trails Fenninger by 32 points in the current standings, while Vonn is a further 379 points behind and out of contention.
Meanwhile in the men's event, Norway's Kjetil Jansrud finished second to Canada's Dustin Cook before collecting the super-G crystal globe he had already won.
Jansrud's time of 1:06.09 was 0.05 seconds slower than Cook, who secured his first-ever World Cup victory on the back of winning a super-G silver medal at the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships in February, and taking third place at the World Cup meet in Kvitfjell, Norway, earlier this month.
"It's special coming into the race and knowing you've won the [super-G] globe," said Jansrud.
"I had a lot of motivation for the race and wanted to go for the win, but I'm still pretty pleased with second place."
The 29-year-old's second-place finish, coupled with his victory in yesterday's downhill event, leaves him 34 points behind Austria's Marcel Hirscher in the overall standings.
Reigning champion Hirscher is firmly in the driving seat with his favoured technical events coming up at the weekend, but Jansrud could make inroads in the giant slalom on Saturday (March 21).
"Marcel is grabbing a lot of points right now and he could already wrap it up on Saturday, but I'll just ski as fast as I can in the giant slalom and we'll see how it goes," added Jansrud.
France's Brice Roger took third place in Méribel, while Italy's Dominik Paris and Austria's Matthias Mayer finished second and third respectively in the discipline standings.
