Snapped: The 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.
This week we’ve got internet celebs, actual celebs, the odd reality show star and more…
The Hollywood heartthrob was seen travelling so-Lowe without his family on his trip to Dubai, making us wonder whether he’s in the region scoping out future projects? Perhaps he popped out to the Arabian Ranches fields for a spot of po-Lowe. It’s nice to see that although he’s getting on a bit, he’s still got that youthful g-Lowe about him. Sorry. We’re so very sorry.
Marco Pierre White
Dubbed the first celebrity chef ever, White was the youngest chef to ever have been awarded three Michelin stars. If Gordon Ramsay were a 25ft Great White shark, White’s a 60ft Megalodon. He’s the one that trained Gordon. He was here to launch his new book Essentially Marco and sat down with Laura from What’s On to talk about everything from sharing concepts to Sheikh Mohammed. Read all about that here.
One of the stars from sophisticated, classy British TV Show Geordie Shore, Kyle Christie was in town on holiday, and can be seen with his brother sat in front of what they probably thought were genies in lamps.
Ballet dancer and TV personality Rosa Acosta celebrated her birthday in style by heading out to the desert and finishing off with an exclusive live performance from rapper Busta Rhymes at 411 Nights.
The international DJ, who’s probably sick of being mistaken with Hardwell, was in town for a set as part of Neonsplash in Al Sahra Desert Resort.
The Justin Bieber-esque Vine star came to Dubai as part of the Social Media Summit on Wednesday at the Armani Hotel.
And got a bit of action-packed quadding in while here…
