Make up moguls, models and more rappers arrive…

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…

Nobu Matsuhisa

Celebrity chef Nobu Matsuhisa is in town for Atlantis, The Palm’s month-long food festival. But the renowned Japanese chef took some time away from the pots and pans to check out Dubai’s new Waterfront Market. Chef Nobu took a tour of the Hamriya Port market, which replaced the 60-year-old Deira Fish Market when it opened in June last year.

One half of Brit DJ duo CamelPhat, Dave Whelan, has been spotted in Dubai this week bringing in his birthdya. Although sadly not performing (it would appear he’s just stopping over on his way back from Sydney to Ibiza), he made sure to snap a selfie while getting his hair done, as well as taking to Insta stories to share how he was celebrating his birthday.

So it turns out even models can get starstruck. When pop sensation turned beauty businesswoman Rihanna came to Dubai for her first ever Fenty Beauty masterclass last weekend, model Halima Aden couldn’t hide her delight at getting a selfie with the star.

The Dubai Mall is set to welcome another huge masterclass this weekend, as make-up mogul Charlotte Tilbury heads to town. But she arrived a little early to host a VIP event at Nikki Beach yesterday, turning the stunning beach club into a beauty wonderland.

After three huge performances last weekend, American rapper Takeshi 6ix9ine was sure to enjoy his time in Dubai, posting pics driving super cars and heading out dirt biking in the desert. Although it looked like the star was taken to hospital after an accident while out in the desert, he’s since posted about releasing new music, so we’re hoping he’s on the mend.
