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

Dubai is fast becoming the mini-break and stopover favourite for the world’s rich and famous.

With so many A-listers (and B, C and D-listers) visiting the glittering emirate every day, it can be hard to keep track of who was spotted where.

So in case you were wondering who to keep an eye out for at The Dubai Mall, we’ve put together a list of some of the famous faces spotted in Dubai and the UAE this week…

Rita Ora

Anywhere singer Rita Ora took to the stage at D3 superclub BASE Dubai over the weekend. The singer also went where many celebs have gone before and visited the home of Dubai rich kid Rashed Belhasa, aka Money Kicks, where she admired his sneaker collection.

Lindsay Lohan

Though Mean Girls actress Lindsay Lohan has been calling Dubai home for some time now, it’s not often we get a peek into her UAE life. But this week, she treated her Instagram followers to a rare glimpse while enjoying a staycation at Zaya Nurai Island. The private island, located off the coast of Abu Dhabi, is home to a five-star resort – and it looks super lush.

Vincent Kompany

Belgian football star Vincent Kompany enjoyed some downtime in Dubai this week. The Manchester City captain was snapped at Cove Beach in Jumeirah Beach Hotel on Wednesday – which just so happens to be ladies’ day.

David Walliams

Little Britain star and best-selling children’s author David Walliams is no stranger to Dubai – he was snapped holidaying here with his mum in November. This week, he returned for the Emirates Airline Festival of Literature, clearly making the most of the warm weather while he was at it.

Pia Wurtzbach

Former Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach was last in Dubai in November 2016, and enjoyed a desert safari adventure. The Filipina beauty queen returned to the emirate this week, trading the sand dunes for the air-conditioned comforts of The Dubai Mall.

Danielle Armstrong

It wouldn’t be a celebs spotted in Dubai round-up without a TOWIE star or two, and this week, well, there are two. Danielle Armstrong was snapped at the One&Only Royal Mirage Dubai:

Amber Turner

Meanwhile, fellow TOWIE star Amber Turner checked out new JBR hotspot STK at the Rixos Premium.
