Jessica Mauboy will make her debut on the red carpet at the Cannes film festival on May 19 in a very exciting move for the Australian singer.
In what is a huge deal for the young star, Mauboy, 22, will walk the red carpet before her film The Sapphires screens at the festival at midnight.
The film, which also stars Deborah Mailman, is about an indigenous girl band in the '60s.
The film, which will premiere in Australia in August, is generating massive buzz around the world.
It is believed an American distributor has picked it up.
A soundtrack from the movie will also be released.
Just exactly what gown Mauboy will wear on the red carpet has not been decided yet, but it is her debut on the world stage.
And with the world's attention on Cannes, there is no doubt designers will be lining up to dress the charismatic star.
Those few who have seen The Sapphires have raved about the film, calling it a potential worldwide smash hit.
