In pics: Celebrities spotted in the UAE this week
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.
We’ve had a real mix this week, from chart-toppers to Bollywood celebs, Vine stars and footballers…
The youngest member of the Jackson 5, Janet Jackson was in town putting on a show for the World Cup Dubai, as well as to unveil her latest luxury line of jewellery. We’re not joking about when we say luxury – one of the necklaces up for sale costs a cool Dhs7.35 million.
Zach King is back, and despite having 13 million followers on Instagram, he still takes the time to grab a selfie with a Dubai fan. Could he get any more likeable?
Nicki Minaj came down on March 25 to deliver a concert as part of the Autism Rocks festival. It seems Nicki got a little peeved halfway through her set though, and can be seen grabbing and throwing one of her security guard’s phones across the stage when he was caught texting during the show. Check it out in the video below.
Millie Mackintosh, everyone’s favourite from Bafta award-winning TV show Made in Chelsea came down to Dubai for the British Polo Day Dubai. Here she is striking a pose on Sheikhy Z outside the Shangri-La while in short shorts.
Bollywood singer-songwriter Mika Singh was down in Bab Al Shams playing a concert for the Indian festival of colours, Holi Masti, alongside fellow singers Jasmine Sandlas and Jaspreet Jasz. We know you’re famous Mika, but we still can’t imagine it’s sunny enough to warrant wearing sunglasses indoors.
Italian-American TV presenter and model Melissa Satta was seen down at Dolphin Bay at the Atlantis Hotel alongside the rest of her family. We’ve got some real #hatenvy for that sweet yellow hat.
Left-back for both Manchester United and the England national team, 20-year-old Luke Shaw stopped by Dubai for the Meydan World Cup. He’s a great footballer, but his photography skills could use a touch-up.
Afrikaner rapper Jack Parow stopped by to play a show at Media One’s Dek on 8. It seems nobody is too cool to pass up the chance to take a classic Burj selfie though.
CEO and Creative Director of New York contemporary clothing company Alica + Olivia, Stacey Bendet was in town for the first time promoting her latest collection. She took a lot of dramatic fashion shots while in the desert during her trip. Like a lot.
Part-Saudi Victoria’s Secret model Shanina Shaik was in town doing a secret project with Emirates Woman magazine. Read all about the star’s upbringing and background in her exclusive interview with Emirates Woman here.
