As the weather becomes truly perfect in the UAE, and a touch too chilly in places like Europe, plenty of celebrities are flying in for a sunny stopover. Here is who was spotted in the desert this week (plus, Ryan Reynolds is now in Abu Dhabi, or at least on his way, to shoot 6 Underground).

It seems, when it comes to UAE travel pics, there's nothing a celebrity loves more than a dune shot, a supercar selfie or a falcon pic...
