When not gracing the catwalks in all their glory, supermodels are traversing the globe in sensational style. Inspired by their Instagram postings, Emirates Woman uncovers the most fashionable hotspots to explore.
LAS VEGAS & LONDON WITH CARA DELEVINGNE
Sleep: Cara and her posse stayed at the Palms Casino Resort when visiting the big city to celebrate fellow model Georgia May Jagger’s birthday. A haven for young celebrities, the off-the-strip hotel has a Michelin-starred restaurant, casino, recording studio and 2,500-seats concert theatre. Here, the party never ends – perfect for Cara. palms.com
Do: Catch a show. Cara saw Celine Dion in concert, but fast outselling Dion and Elton John is comeback queen Britney. Tickets for her Piece Of Me show are available on ticketmaster.com
Eat: FIVE50 Pizza Bar is an exclusive joint venture between ARIA, a luxury hotel, and award-winning chef Shawn McClain. A popular venue among the A-list. aria.com
Drink: The cool crowd congregate at The Downtown Cocktail Room where the creative bartenders bring a whole new meaning to the phrase mixologist. thedowntownlv.com
Sleep: Frequented by Hollywood hot shots and designed by Philippe Starck, it doesn’t get more illustrious than the Sanderson. morganshotelgroup.com
Do: Sightsee. No matter how many times you’ve been to the city, you still haven’t seen it all.
Eat: Co-owned by Robert DeNiro, Nobu in Mayfair is awash with A-listers and models.
Drink: Go to Evans & Peel Detective Agency for minor role-play in a very well hidden speakeasy. Appointments must be made in advance, stating your ‘case’. evansandpeel.com
Party: Cara, Rihanna and Prince Harry are just a few of the stars that are regulars at London’s hottest, raunchiest and most entertaining club – The Box. theboxsoho.com
ICELAND WITH KARLIE KLOSS
Sleep: Incredibly sleek and elegant, the smoke-free 101 Hotel is a luxurious boutique spot in the heart Reykjavik. 101hotel.is
Do: Follow in the footsteps of Karlie Kloss and hike a glacier, climb the side of a waterfall and unwind in a hot spring.
Eat: It doesn’t get more authentic than at Humarhusid Restaurant, which prides itself for its 90 per cent Icelandic cuisine including fresh fish, lobster, duck and horse. humarhusid.is
Drink: Housed in an abandoned biscuit factory, Kex is stunning bar that feels more like a trendy warehouse-style home. Old bookshelves and artefacts give it a delightfully rustic feel. If you’re lucky, you might catch a live gig. kexhostel.is
Party: A longstanding institute is Kaffibarinn. Though it still retains much of its original 1980s design, it’s still a popular haunt with celebrities. kaffibarinn.is
TOKYO WITH GEORGIA MAY JAGGER
Sleep: Brought to everyone’s attention
in Lost In Translation, the Park Hyatt Tokyo, in the upper floors of the impressive Kenzo Tange tower, attracts actors, models
and discerning travellers alike.
Do: Go shopping, of course. But aside from hitting Ginza district for a dose of fashion, do as Georgia did and explore the markets. The Tsukiji fish market is great for fresh sushi. If you have time, take a day trip to Mount Fuji.
Eat: Made famous for that major fight scene in Kill Bill, Gonpachi is just as renowned for its local cuisine – think delicious tempura, fresh sushi and its popular chocolate and sesame desserts. gonpachi.jp
Drink: Take a gamble and let the bartenders decide what drink you want at Bar High Five. They pride themselves on their mixology skills and they rarely get it wrong. 8.ocn.ne.jp/~highfive
Party: You can’t go out in Tokyo without visiting a karaoke bar. There are plenty to choose from but for extra glam try the VIP karaoke rooms in Le Baron de Paris, the Marc Newson co-owned club. lebaron.jp
ROME WITH NATASHA POLY
Sleep: The Russian model spent time at the gorgeous Hotel Splendide, a 19th-century palace overlooking the Villa Borghese gardens, and in walking distance from the Spanish Steps and the boutiques of Via dei Condotti. robertonaldicollection.com
Do: A night tour of the city. Not only do you avoid the manic tourist crowds, but you also get to see the wondrous city lit in all its glory.
Eat: Ristorante Crispi19, located in the heart of the city (between the Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps), serves traditional Italian dishes with a modern twist, but also has caviar on its deluxe menu, which will please Natasha. ristorantecrispi19.com
Drink: Laid-back but incredibly stylish, Bar Necci is a wrap-around garden terrace that is as popular with locals as it is with the international glitterati. necci1924.com
Party: Old-world charm meets debauchery at Goa, a nightclub where Leonardo DiCaprio and his fellow cast members from Gangs Of New York let off steam after filming.
