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…

Steve Aoki

We love keeping up with DJ legend Steve Aoki when he comes to Dubai. Last year, he gave us all hotel-envy when he stayed at one of the underwater Atlantis suites. This time around, ahead of his live performance at Business Bay club, Gotha, he hung out with camels in the desert, caught up with rap due Rae Sremmurd at IMG world of adventures, and threw a whole load of cake.


Although they didn’t post about their stellar Media City Amphitheatre performance on Friday, Stereophonics did take to their Instagram to thank the team at Dubai Airports for looking after them.

Monalysa Alcantara

Miss Brazil 2017 Monalysa Alcantara was spotted at Yas Marina Circuit last week in Abu Dhabi, and seemed to love her driving experience, happily posing for pictures trackside.

Boris Becker & Roger Federer

Two tennis legends were spotted enjoying brunch at one of our favourite spots, Ruya this weekend. Both Boris Becker and Roger Federer happily posed for pictures with the team at the Grosvenor House restaurant.

Rick Ross

He was in town for two major season closing performances, and American rapper Rick Ross made sure to make the most of his downtime in the city. As well as heading out on a desert safari, he made sure to snap a selfie in a luxury supercar.

Rae Sremmurd

Steve x Swae in Dubai ?

American hip hop duo Rae Sremmund were part of an all-star line up of performers taking to the stage at Meydan’s super venues White and Drai’s over the weekend. As well as catching up with Steve Aoki, Swae Lee (aka one half of Rae Sremmund) also made time to pay a visit to Money Kicks.

Jonas Blue

Time for some Salt Bae ?

Another huge closing party this weekend was Zero Gravity, who flew in DJ and Producer Jonas Blue to headline the final Ritual event of the season. Jonas Blue, real name Guy James Robin, stayed a second night in Dubai, and headed to Salt Bae’s restaurant Nus-ret.
