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…

Floyd Mayweather

He may have only been in town for a one-off performance at White Dubai last weekend, but Floyd Mayweather has been living it up in Dubai since. As well as cruising around the gulf on a yacht, showing off his skiing skills at Ski Dubai and paying a visit to Miss Lily’s, the legendary boxer also made time to make this video in the Dubai Desert.


Not enough feet on insta is there ?

A post shared by example (@example) on

British singer and DJ Example was headlining at the Nasimi Beach closing party, so it made sense that he would be staying in the adjacent resort, Atlantis The Palm. He made sure to post this relaxed snap as he played ball in the grounds.

Penelope Cruz

In town to open the brand new Carpisa store in the Dubai Mall fashion avenue extension was none other than actress Penelope Cruz. As well as her red carpet duties, the actress also made time to soak up the sunshine, posting a make-up free selfie to Instagram over the weekend.

Colonel Sanders

The What’s On office was thrilled to see pictures emerge of Colonel Sanders – KFC’s iconic mascot and founder (or at least someone dressed as him) taking the helm of a massive KFC-branded yacht before hopping on a jet ski and making his way ashore to hand out free shrimp to surprised beachgoers at Kite Beach last week.

Nancy Ajram

Proving that even celebs can’t help but take snaps by Dubai’s iconic landmarks, Nancy Ajram posted this picture to her Instagram at the end of last week, while in the city for a Dragon Mart live performance.
