Celebrity Holiday Stalking: How You Can Do What They Do
Want to holiday like Cheryl does? Here’s how!
By Tamara Roper
Jet setting is all well and good when you’re a super-successful celeb with money to burn, but just how do the rest of us get a glam tan? With a slightly less exclusive, but still bloody brilliant alternative, of course. Here are five of them to get that wanderlust going…
They do: Cheryl and JBFV get quietly married Mustique.
How They Do: Musty? Mis-teeq? You haven’t got a clue where Mustique is and, frankly, neither do we. A quick Google Earth search reveals that Mustique is in fact in the middle of the Caribbean. It has a population of 500 people, though is taken over by celebrities in ‘peak season’. Can you imagine? An island of only famous people. Dreamy.
How you do: Cuba! Obviously. Cuba is also in the Caribbean, though you’ll have to share breathing space with normal people, which may or may not be to your liking.
They do: Cara Delevingne and the black sands of Bali.
How They Do: Remember when Cara caused a slight furore over her nudie photos on the Indonesian island of Bali? What was technically a ‘work trip’ escalated into a LOL-a-minute social media sandstorm that the rest of the world wished they were in on.
How you do: Bali is a popular backpacker destination, so rest easy in the fact you’ll be partying with equally wild young things – let sea water be your shampoo and leave anything bigger than hot pants at home as you make like Queen Delevingne. Just make sure your phone is firmly strapped to your hand ready for any Instagram opportunity.
They do: Karlie Kloss bathing in the Icelandic waters.
How They Do: Check out lady Kloss going back to nature with this immersive, staring-at-mountains Earth-child picture. Iceland isn’t for the brave hearted, however. Lack of sunlight, lack of population and lack of cheap flights make it pretty much a no-go for anyone who isn’t committed. So instead check out…
How you do: …Lake Corrib, Ireland. Remote, but not inaccessible. Beautiful, but no language barrier. Also, generally, much sunnier. What’s not to love?
They do: St. Tropez
How They Do: And by how ‘they’ do, we literally mean ‘they’. Because everybody goes to St. Tropez. Kate Moss and all of her gang, Simon Cowell and his ex-girlfriends, Paris Hilton and…. yeah. You get the gist.
How you do: Nice? We guess? It’s on the same side of France, so for the dedicated celeb spotter you can always just get the train down.
They Do: Disneyland Paris
How They Do: For the A-lister with a-listers in tow. The parade, the rides, the fact that they’re in a theme park that’s still close to Paris – Disneyland is the perfect destination for the family who want to disguise a shopping trip as a kid’s holiday. Or for boyband and girlband couples like Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards.
How You Do: Alton Towers? Thorpe Park? We can’t promise proximity to fabulous shopping destinations, but get yourself a queue jump pass and at least you’ll be able to feel slightly fabulous as you swan to the front.
