Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn were on opposite sides of the world on Thursday.

As the pop star prepared to take the stage of her Reputation Tour in Minneapolis, Minnesota, her British actor boyfriend Joe Alwyn was overseas — walking the red carpet of the 75th Venice Film Festival.

Alwyn, 27, was on hand for the premiere of his upcoming film, The Favourite, which he stars in alongside Emma Stone, Olivia Colman and Nicholas Hoult.

The group looked glamorous as they posed together with director Yorgos Lanthimos for photographers — Alwyn in a classic black tuxedo with a white shirt and flat black bow tie.

Stone, 29, wore a blush, embroidered long-sleeve Louis Vuitton gown with a plunging neckline, while Colman, 44, looked sleek in a two-piece black number with a flowing cape. Hoult, 28, and Lanthimos, 45, both also wore tuxedos — the former in blue and the latter in black.

Prior to the premiere, Alywn and his costars hung out in a more casual setting.

The group appeared to go for a boat ride, according to a black and white photo of them shared to Alywn’s Instagram. They looked to be having fun, laughing and smiling in the picture.

Though Swift may be back in the United States, she did spend some time with Alwyn on Aug. 22 in-between tour stops.

The Grammy winner, 28, and Alwyn were photographed holding hands on a rare public outing in London, as they had a date night at Covent Garden’s Hawksmoor steak restaurant.

Dating since late 2016, the couple have kept their relationship tightly under wraps. Neither have spoken publicly about the romance, but Alwyn and his family have been supporting Swift at her shows over the last year.

In July, they also retreated to a luxury resort in Turks and Caicos and were photographed strolling on the beach and frolicking in the water.

Most of Reputations love songs — including “Gorgeous” and “Call It What You Want” — appear to be inspired by Alwyn. And her latest single, “Delicate,” and the sexy song “Dress” also shed light on the start of their low-key relationship.

“Flashback to when you met me / Your buzz cut / And my hair bleached,” sings Swift on “Dress,” possibly referencing the haircut Alwyn sported while filming Billy Lynn’s Halftime Walk. The superstar had her hair bleached for a few months in the spring of 2016, and both stars attended the Met Gala that May.

“She seems to be in a great place both career and love wise,” a source previously told PEOPLE. “Joe is just an amazing boyfriend. He is very supportive. Taylor adores his family. She’s in a very good place.”
