Fashion’s finest debuted their summer best at the 10th annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic this past weekend. A parade of summer whites and florals took the ferry to Liberty State Park for a day of sporting and sipping. Neil Patrick Harris was on hosting duty, and recording artist and Broadway sensation Jordan Fisher commenced the day with a rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner.”
Nicole Kidman, who wore a black and white polka dot dress by Alessandra Rich, was onsite, while Kendall Jenner, who came solo, made a brief appearance donning a green floral Dolce & Gabbana mini and white leather boots for her first-ever polo match. Keri Russell, dressed in Johanna Ortiz, made a date of the event with her The Americans costar Matthew Rhys. Other notables in attendance included Lucy Hale, Kate Mara, Jordan Fisher, Freida Pinto, Luke Evans, Jessica Jung, Jamie Chung, Coco Rocha, Ahna O’Reilly, Jessica Hart, Laura Harrier, Andrew Rannells, Lais Riberio, and many more. We also spotted Maye Musk, who told us it was her first time attending the Polo Classic in New York.
The game began with the ceremonial ball toss thrown in by Priyanka Chopra, who opted for a Pretty Woman-inspired polka dot dress. Polo power couple Nacho Figueras and Delfina Blaquier brought Team Veuve Clicquot a total of six points, ultimately leading them to victory against Team Liberty Comet. “We love New York in general, we’ve been coming here for a long time,” Figueras told us. “I love this park, this view, and the energy of this place is incredible.” Between halves, guests stomped divots and captured the oh-so-Instagrammable Veuve decor, complete with oversized champagne bottles and orange florals.
Alicia Keys serenaded a champagne-happy crowd post-match, singing “Empire State of Mind,” “Girl on Fire,” and “No One,” perfectly capping off New York’s most anticipated and stylish summer kick-off event.
