Celebs in Dubai this week: Cricket legends and world-class models
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 the city hosted cricketing legends, world-class models, Bollywood actresses and TV presenters…
Supermodel extraordinaire Coco Rocha jetted into town with the cutest co-traveller:
And the mum-and-daughter duo were shown around the city by none other than Mohammad Sultan Al Habtoor.
