For the sixth consecutive year, the annual ‘Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic’ returned to the iconic ‘Will Rogers State Historic Park’ in the high end area of Los Angeles called Pacific Palisades, for a delicious afternoon of polo, picnicking and sparkling champagne.
Hosts Nacho Figueras, and the President of Veuve Clicquot USA, Vanessa Kay, received approximately 5000 guests.
Considered to be one the most glamorous out door social events, many international celebrities from film and fashion attended the bash including, January Jones, Nina Dobrev, Victoria Justice, Jaime King, Scott Foley, Camilla Belle, Ashley Madekwe, Selma Blair, James Marsden, Eva Amurri, Lauren Conrad, Rachel Zoe, Bellamy Young, Jessie Metcalf, Scott Foley and more.
Singer/songwriter Cheyenne Jackson sang a powerful version of the National Anthem and actress Victoria Justice launched the Polo Ball to officially start the match. Nacho Figuera’s team won 9-5 and Delfina Blaquier [Figuera’s wife] was awarded “Most Valuable Player.”
Veuve Clicquot continues to maintain the tradition of Polo living in Los Angeles and supports one of the last polo fields of the region.
