Yes Way Rose. Inside the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic

veuve clicquot rose gardenEasily one of my summer highlights is going to the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic. Everyone dresses to the nines in their best 1920’s/Pretty Woman inspired attire and drinks champagne all day — oh and there’s handsome men on horses, led by Argentine polo champion player Nacho Figueras playing polo in the background. It’s a visual fantasy and one I very much look forward to every year.

Veuve Clicquot Polo Match

I’ve always said that the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic is my favorite drinking day of the year! The VIP section is such perfection, from the decor to the fashion and of course my favorite beverage options: Veuve Clicquot Champagne or Rose!

Veuve Clicqot Polo Classic 2013

It was a picture perfect day on Saturday as we celebrated the 6th annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic. Hosted by Matthew McConaughey (who was escorted by his lovely wife Camila Alves), 7,000 New Yorkers braved the heat and took the ferry to Liberty Island where the match took place. My group was fortunate enough to enjoy the match in the VIP section where the bubbly was non-stop flowing and the crowd could not have been more handsome. Straight out of a Gatsby fantasy, it’s I look forward to this event every year. DJ Nick Cohen got the crowd riled up, especially at the end of the match when the scene turned into a fill out dance party.

A Beautiful Weekend for the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic

Corks off to Veuve Clicquot for hosting an exceptional weekend of beautiful people, glamorous hats, exceptional champagne and of course polo.

Friday night, VC president, Jean-Marc Lacave and VC US president, Vanessa Kay hosted a kick-off party to celebrate the 5th Annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic on top of The Standard Hotel at Le Bain. I celebrated with a few friends, toasting the night away; getting lost in the live band and playing with the exceptional array of Veuve Clicquot merchandise floating around the room (I somehow ended up with a VC hat, cigars, a fan and sunglasses!). The event all-star, polo extraordinaire, Nacho Figueras was casually walking the room, taking pictures and looking as virile in person as he does in his Ralph Lauren ads.

{Cheers to fabulous friends, and especially Christine for making all of this possible!}

Then Saturday came, THE BIG DAY — the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic. My group packed a picnic and headed downtown to catch the ferry to Liberty State Park where the festivities were taking place. What a dapper audience getting on board the boat, sporting an exceptional array of hats. I could written a blog post alone on the variety of exceptionally unique chapeau’s I spotted.

{Only thing better then a wonderful day in the park… wonderful friends to enjoy it with}

{For anyone watching the match… all eyes we’re on Nacho}

{How could I resist not part taking in the ceremonial filling of the divots?! STOMP, STOMP, STOMP!}

{VIP Section… I spy Padma Lakshmi}

After lounging on the grass we headed to the VIP section where the champagne was pouring and strawberries we’re being passed out, while a decadent buffet was on display for guests to enjoy. After 4 hours of sun and champagne, the Nespresso bar was literally saving my life and keeping me awake. All that was missing was a charging station — my phone died! Which was fine since it was great to just be present for such a wonderful event, without fighting the urge to instagram and tweet everything in site (as I did the 3 hours prior). Notable guests in the room included Clive Owen, Rachel Zoe, Leslie Bibb, Padma Lakshmi, Zoe Saldana, Jason Wu, Tiffani Thiessen, Dree Hemingway, Poppy Minka Kelly, Hilary Rhoda, Alek Wek, Coco Rocha, Jessica Stam, Olivia Palermo, Poppy Delevigne, DJ Mia Moretti and Caitlin Moe. I had to cut the day a little short as I had a flight to catch to LA, otherwise, I wanted the day to never end!

Thank you Veuve Clicquot for a lovely weekend!
