From reality stars and rappers to Will Smith’s mega week in the Emirates…

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 weekend…

It’s been a busy week in Dubai for A-list couple Will and Jada Pinkett Smith. From skydives to dinner in d3, as well as snapping some epic selfies up the Burj Khalifa, they’ve been sure to fill their time with some top activities in the city.

Although we’re not entirely sure whether they’re here for business or pleasure, Will Smith took to Instagram to share that he can’t wait to show his fans what the family have been filming. We can’t wait either, Will.

Former Geordie Shore star Vicky Pattinson clearly knows how to make the most of her time in Dubai. She’s been here for the last few days, and she’s basically been to every one of our favourite party spots in the city; from ladies’ day at FIVE to brunch at STK Downtown, to a Saturday party brunch at Zero Gravity.

Jamaican cricketer Chris Gayle has been spotted vacationing in the Emirate this week, and like most tourists, he’s been sure to head to some of the city’s most iconic spots. He shared this snap of him enjoying a coffee outside the fountains earlier this week.


Vengaboys first Dubai gig proved so popular on Thursday evening, that Zero Gravity announced a last-minute encore gig would take place two days later. Thousands of fans turned out to the Dubai beach club to catch the Eurodance act perform some of their biggest hits including Boom Boom Boom and We Like To Party.


In town to perform at swanky clubs Base and 1OAK, American rapper ASAP Ferg also made sure to see the sights, taking to Instagram stories to post a snap at the Burj Khalifa.
