Dubai is quickly becoming the mini-break and stopover favourite for the world’s rich and famous.

With so many A-listers (and, let’s be honest B-, C- and D-listers) visiting the glittering emirate every day, we bring you a weekly round up of who was spotted where.

This week we’ve got pop stars, Real Housewives, sporting legends and more…

Gary Barlow showed off his deltoids from his balcony at The One & Only: 

Actual supermodel Eva Herzigova (so many imitators) opted for a buggy as transport around Dubai Mall, joined by top model Carmen Kass:

That’s the way to shop! #vfde #mydubai @kasscarmen #vogueitalia @francasozzani1 @dolcegabbana #jimmychoo

Manny Pacquaio scaled the heights of the Burj Khalifa with his wife:

Lebanese-British pop star Mika took a selfie in Dubai Airport (he then tweeted about seeing a billboard on SZR of his self-proclaimed doppelganger Nick Grimshaw. We can definitely see it):

The Real Housewives of New York’s Kristen Taekman was here for fashion shows and managed to fit in Dubai musts – the Burj, camels and evening gowns during daylight:

Daawat-e-Ishq star Karan Wahi fit in a Skydive, Fatburger and Tim Hortons while in the city this week. Man’s got his priorities straight:




Superstar Belgian DJ Yves V also fit in a skydive before playing at Sensation Dubai (basically, if you want to see a famous person in the city, go to Skydive Dubai).

Tomorrowland fans are skydive instructors too #dubai #sensation #skydive

English cricketer Jason Roy swapped bat for iron for a round of golf at Dubai Creek.

And finally, Azerbaijani pop star Emin – who is huge in Russia – took his kids trick or treating. Judging from the fact that it looks like they’re in the Burj Al Arab, we imagine they scored some pretty swanky sweets:

Happy Halloween Счастья и Радости всем детям ❤️
