$100 bottles of champagne, well-dressed women carrying tiny yellow umbrellas, a New York City Skyline as the backdrop, and of course Nacho Figueras riding a horse set the scene for the Fifth Annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic this weekend at Liberty State Park. The Veuve Clicquot-sponsored event is known for its well-dressed attendees, champagne-only beverages, and famous faces. Last year, Prince Harry played in the match (which was held on Governor’s Island), but this year he was absent due to his grandmother’s Diamond Jubilee festivities.

The relationship between Veuve Clicquot and polo started in England, and the first New York Polo Classic was held in 2008.

The celebrities were all tucked away in the VIP tent, but we saw plenty of fashionable folks with fascinators, lots of horses, and flowing champagne.

It was a beautiful day at Liberty State Park.

You can't really beat any event that has the New York City skyline as its backdrop.

Check out the huge field the match was to be played on.

Attendees set up blankets and umbrellas around the field.

The Veuve Clicquot girls strolled around the field holding tiny yellow umbrellas to shade them from the sun.

There was a four-piece string band providing tunes for everyone.

This girl took shelter from the sun under her personal umbrella.

We couldn't help but take a photo of this woman's hat. The butterflies circling the brim were too funny.

Everyone was dressed to the nines.

You could order a flute of champagne for $20, or a bottle for $100.

We found where the horses were kept. During the match, the horses are swapped out frequently.

The tents across the way was where all the celebrities were stashed.

Finally, the match began!

Everyone flooded to the foul net to watch Nachos Figueras, a polo star, play.

Former Business Insider intern Melanie Hicken was there.

And one of our friends caught a foul-polo ball! It was surprisingly light.

After a goal, the players would ride around, riling up the crowd.
