The It Girls at the heart of London’s social scene will be swapping the Big Smoke for the bright lights of Dubai this weekend.

Model Poppy Delevingne, Chanel ambassador and sister of supermodel Cara, is heading to the UAE for a special event at Nobu, where she’ll be joined by Made In Chelsea star turned fashion designer Millie Mackintosh and model Zara Martin.

The girls will be among the guests of honours at the inaugural World of Nobu event, which will see Chef Nobu Matsuhisa himself team up with the executive chefs running his kitchens around the world for a two-day stint in a pop-up restaurant at Atlantis, The Palm.

Chef Nobu’s right hand men from 16 of his restaurants, including Miami, London, and Cape Town, will arrive in Dubai to prepare iconic Nobu dishes for diners at the pop-up at Asateer.

Kicking off with a lavish cocktail party on Thursday night, attended by Poppy, Millie and Zara, World of Nobu will also incorporate the ‘ultimate’ brunch on Friday afternoon, and a six-course gala dinner on Friday night, complete with live music and cooking demonstrations from Chef Nobu and his team.

As well as the chance to party with Poppy and Co, guests at Thursday’s ‘Nobu Night Out’ will get to feast on unlimited tapas prepared by Chef Nobu and his skilled team. Tickets to the event, which will take place from 9pm to 3am at Asateer, start at Dhs250. The brunch is Dhs595 per person, and tickets to the gala dinner cost Dhs995.

Reflecting on the event, a spokesman for the iconic hotel, said: “We are extremely thrilled to be hosting the very first World of Nobu. We have long valued our partnership with Chef Nobu and are excited to offer his fans globally the chance to experience this truly spectacular culinary event where they get to sample delicacies from Nobu restaurants worldwide. Nobu has long set the standard for Japanese cuisine and this event will raise the culinary bar even higher.”
