$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.
The Veuve Clicquot girls strolled around the field holding tiny yellow umbrellas to shade them from the sun.
We couldn't help but take a photo of this woman's hat. The butterflies circling the brim were too funny.
