Because let’s be honest, we all love a bit of celebrity goss…

With so many A-listers (and, let’s be honest B-, C- and D-listers) visiting the glittering Emirates every day, here’s a compilation of who was spotted where. With the 13th edition of the Dubai International Film Festival just finishing, the city was positively celeb ridden this week.

Who was in town over the past seven days? Well…

Samuel L. Jackson

The Hollywood legend was the main guest at the Dubai International Film Festival, hosting a Q & A at the festival on Friday. He also managed to catch an abra that day, making his way past a Dubai brunch…

Leaving lunch headed to a press thingy on the hotel grounds. Can’t vouch for the Hotline Cover! Hahahaha. #dff16

Eva Longoria Baston

The last time we saw Eva Longoria in Dubai, she was being proposed to in the desert by now-husband José Baston. This time, she was in town to make an appearance at the DIFF. While here she managed to get a Burj Khalifa snap with Melanie Griffith and Anastasia (as in the “I’m outta love, set me free!” singer)

All the way up! #BurjKhalifa #MyDubai

Melanie Griffith

Re: aforementioned Burj Khalifa snaps, Eva Longoria really took one for the team to get the perfect shot of actress Melanie Griffith…

Guiliana Rancic

The host of Live From The Red Carpet and Fashion Police was on the red carpet herself this time, making up one of the many famous faces at the film festival. She certainly looks happy to see the Burj Al Arab…

Olga Kurylenko

When she’s not busy being one of the scarier Bond girls, Kurylenko finds herself on the red carpets of the world, including this one at the Madinat.

Jeffrey Wright

The star of the new hit HBO TV series Westworld was in town to talk about the show at DIFF. Was it really him though? Or was it just the 3D-printed robot version of him from the show?

He obviously visited the beach on one of Dubai’s rare windy days…

Luke Hemsworth

Brother to Chris and Liam, Luke Hemsworth was at the DIFF to talk about Westworld alongside co-star Jeffrey Wright, both of them can be seen here enjoying some sun at Shimmers in the shadow of the Burj Al Arab.

Bill Nighy

The wonderful British actor made up the big-dog crowd at the DIFF. Here he is hanging at a mini Mahiki…

Ranveer Singh

The 31-year-old Bollywood actor was flaunting some whiskers that give us serious ‘tasche-envy…

Nesreen Tafesh

Palestinian actress and social media superstar Nesreen Tafesh represented the Arab world on the DIFF’s red carpet.

Nancy Ajram

Meanwhile, the world-famous, best-selling Lebanese singer was in the UAE for a concert in Abu Dhabi.

She fit in a meal with a Ski Dubai view while here too…

Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May

The much-loved ex-Top Gear presenters were in town to film the finale of the first season of their new show The Grand Tour. While many of us won’t have been lucky enough to see the trio in person, you may have seen their faces projected onto the side of the Burj Khalifa.
