Spotting celebrities in Marbella

Marbella celebrities Claudia SchifferIt’s renowned for its beautiful coastline, its all year round sunny climate and its abundance of wealth, yachts and sports cars. Now it seems Marbella is also becoming the best place to do a bit of celebrity spotting too. Although the Costa del Sol town has always been popular with famous faces and is described as a playground for the rich and famous, they’ve been arriving by the dozen recently. Only last week supermodel Naomi Campbell was spotted on a girlie holiday in Puerto Banús. The 43-year-old was mending a broken heart after splitting from her billionaire boyfriend Vladislav Doronin. While here the British star was seen in a number of restaurants popular with well-heeled types enjoying seafood in such venues as Restaurante Antonio at the marina. Just a couple of weeks earlier fellow star Claudia Schiffer, who is arguably the world’s most famous supermodel, was strolling around the charming Old Town of Marbella with her family. Although the 42-year-old German beauty is used to turning heads on the catwalk she might have wished not so many fans noticed her after many recognised her before she escaped into a nearby restaurant. Another gorgeous model gracing us with her good looks in Marbella last week was Miss World 2003 winner Rosanna Davison. The 29-year-old Irish daughter of singer Chris de Burgh (Lady in Red), who once posed for the German edition of Playboy Magazine, regularly holidays here in the Costa del Sol. But the news on everyone’s lips at the moment is whether or not Hollywood’s biggest A-list couple will visit Marbella this summer. Brangelina, or Brad Pitt and his wife Angelina Jolie as they are otherwise known, are rumoured to be attending the Spanish premiere of his movie World War Z. The zombie blockbuster is set to get its premiere at Marbella’s Starlight Festival next month and organisers say they are preparing a red carpet. Of course then there is the resident celebrity population of Marbella, which sometimes gets George Clooney celebrities Marbellaoverlooked. Stars with a holiday home in the area include Antonio Banderas, George Clooney and Alexander Mostovoi. Arguably the most famous James Bond ever, Sean Connery, also made Marbella his permanent home for many years before moving to the Bahamas. Then there are the likes of James Hewitt, Princess Diana's former lover, the late Margaret Thatcher's son Mark and Hollywood actor Dolph Lundgren. So with the summer in full swing, perhaps now is the time to arm yourself with a pair of binoculars to see what A-list celebrities are up to in Marbella.
