(New York, NY) Veuve Clicquot celebrated its fourth annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic on Governors Island to benefit Hope Help & Rebuild Haiti. Hosted by Hugh Jackman , Marc Jacobs, Donna Karan and Nacho Figueras, the polo classic attracted celebrities—including Wyclef, Sanaa Lathan, Alek Wek, Naomi Watts—VIPs and over 18,000 people who all ferried over in their Sunday best to enjoy a spirited game of polo.
The classic featured a fierce competition between Black Watch lead by Nacho Figueras vs Team Veuve Clicquot headed up by Rico Mansur. After four intense chukkers (equivalent to quarters in basketball) that included spectators being invited to participate in the tradition of stomping of the divots at half time, Figueras lead Black Watch to a 6-5 victory.
Beside spending an beautiful afternoon sipping Clicquot and watching polo, the highlight of the classic as always was the fashion. Ladies in their fancy hats and gentlemen in their dapper ensembles made for great entertainment particularly for non-sports enthusiast.
