Celebrities Turn Out for Veuve Clicquot Inaugural Polo Classic

Despite the small print requesting guests to don 1920′s and 30′s era attire, many turned out in light fluid handkerchief hemmed day dresses, boaters, bow ties and knickers.

I was especially impressed with the male servers and bartenders; most with signature Veuve brand bow ties, ascots or waistcoats; the ladies in crochet knee socks and feathers and variations on flapper wear in between.

On offer were Classic Yellow Label, Rose Brut and the ever popular 1985 Rose Vintage, enjoyed by all including the crashers onto the VIP side of the field after the half time traditional divot stamping ... just in time for dessert!

Host and Polo Super Star Nacho Figueras was making the rounds pre-game obliging fans with photos and handshakes. Red carpet saw the likes of Minnie Driver (preparing for the ensuing press accompanying her new film Conviction starring Hilary Swank), Donovon Leitch with his beautifully angelic daughter Violet Jean, Michelle Hicks, Jonny Lee Miller, Rachel Zoe, Mischa Barton, festooned in black and white feathers and our local fashion hero Cameron Silver.
