Go on, we all love a bit of celeb gossip from time to time…

With RedFestDXB starting today, the city’s got a fair few famous faces knocking about, and it’d be a shame if you passed one in the streets without noticing who they were.

For those reasons, we’ve gone ahead and thrown together a list of some of the celebs who were either in, or are passing through Dubai this week. So now if you were almost certain you were at the same restaurant as a celeb, or crossed one of them in the mall – you can confirm your suspicions and prove to your friends you weren’t lying.

Everybody’s favourite cosmologist and astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson came to visit for the first time ever, hosting a talk at the Dubai World Government Summit about the scientific and technological advances made during the Golden Age of Islam.

However, it seems nobody took any photos of him, despite the man’s astronomical presence – eclipsing his attendance at the summit entirely.
