Selena Gomez has had a quiet 2019 so far, making her first event appearance of the year last weekend at Coachella. But that’s about to change. The Los Angeles Times confirmed on Twitter today that Gomez will be at the Cannes Film Festival. Her upcoming zombie comedy film The Dead Don’t Die is opening the festival.

The Cannes Film Festival is a showcase for some of the most breathtaking red carpet fashion of the year. Many Cinderella dress moments have taken place there, which means Gomez will likely be dressed to the nines for that premiere on May 14.

It will be Gomez’s first time at the festival ever. At just 19 years of age, the singer and actress attended Cannes Lions, the creativity festival, but it’s separate from the film festival.

Gomez has also been to the Venice Film Festival, the late summer Italian counterpart to Cannes. She went in September 2012, just a couple of months after she attended Cannes Lions, for the Spring Breakers premiere:

It’s not clear whether Gomez will attend the Met Gala the week before Cannes in New York City. Last year, she went in a Coach dress. It would be her first formal red carpet of the year if she does attend on May 6.

Gomez could also show up again at Coachella this weekend to perform during DJ Snake’s set with Cardi B. The two women joined him and Ozuna to perform “Taki Taki” on stage last Friday. It was Gomez’s first time ever performing at the festival.
