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

We knew Hollywood legend Tom Cruise was up to something in the UAE last week, and now the star has confirmed he’s been shooting part of a movie in Abu Dhabi.

Cruise was also snapped in front of a helicopter owned by Falcon Aviation, a corporate jet and helicopter service provider based in Abu Dhabi.

Trey Songz

Grammy-nominated hip-hop artist Trey Songz jetted into Dubai this week for the opening of superclub Drai’s Dubai. After taking to the stage, the star was spotted at celebrity hotspot Miss Lily’s Dubai in the Sheraton Grand Hotel.

Olivia Culpo

Former Miss Universe Olivia Culpo was recently in Dubai to announce the line-up for Beauty Pop, a beauty event that will take place later this year. But we were more interested in what she got up to in her free time – here she is in Ras Al Khaimah, after completing the world’s longest zipline.

Janni Delér

Swedish lifestyle/fashion blogger Janni Delér has been in the UAE over the past week, and naturally was ‘gramming up a storm. She shared this post-spa snap from the Burj Al Arab, as you do.


Brazilian football legend Pele was in Dubai this week to attend the CVC Convention – an event to help promote Dubai to Brazilian tourists. Pele, who is a global ambassador for Emirates, shared this snap with some of the lovely cabin crew.
