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…

Tom Cruise

Hollywood legend Tom Cruise made a low-key visit to Dubai this week to visit top media executive Ahmad Al Shaikh. According to Al Shaikh, the pair discussed “the best ways of making the UAE a hotspot and a magnet for global filmmaking”. Exciting!

Dua Lipa

One of the world’s biggest popstars right now, British-Albanian singer Dua Lipa, made her UAE debut in Abu Dhabi last weekend. We’re pleased to see she managed to squeeze in a visit to the beautiful Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque before the gig.

Nicole Scherzinger

Former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger showed off her skills at a Pilates class in Dubai this week. The singer said it was her “first” Reformer Pilates class… yeah right, Nicole, stop making the rest of us feel bad!
