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 Lebanese singers, Italian entrepreneurs and fitness gurus.


Carla Nazih Berkachi, aka Yara, stopped by Abu Dhabi for the wedding of a friend.

Flavio Briatore

Italian businessman and ex-manager of the Renault F1 racing team Flavio Briatore was in Dubai opening up the latest edition of the Billionaire Mansion. Perhaps he could use some of his money to buy a fitted shirt.

One of the biggest names in the rap game, 2Chainz has collaborated with some of the best – from Kanye to T.I. He’s in town for a show at Cirque le Soir on Thursday night, and our boy 2Chainz can be seen here quite literally chilling in Cavalli Club’s ice bar.

Burnie Burns

A real jack of all trades, Burnie Burns is an American writer, actor, producer, comedian, host and director – best known for being the current CEO of production company Rooster Teeth. He’s in the city as part of the TV show The Amazing Race, and judging by the look on his face we’re guessing he’s not finding it so amazing anymore.
