This past weekend Veuve Clicquot hosted their 7th annual #VCPoloClassic held at one of my favorite locations in Los Angeles, Will Rogers State Park & Polo Field. Leaving no detail unnoticed, Veuve Clicquot once again pulled out all the stops (and champagne!) for one of the season’s most popular polo matches. From the Yellow Label themed lawn to the pink palmed Rosé Garden it’s no surprise this event creates so much hype. Just like the champagne, the polo classic only gets better and better each year!

We always aim to arrive early, but unfortunately this never happens making the fast pass ticket an even more appealing option. Once we made it to the polo fields we scoped out the best place to picnic then b-lined to the champagne tents for our first bottle of the day. I always love how elaborately the lawn is decorated— this year it was complete with the traditional Veuve Clicquot corn hole, ample #VCPolo photo backdrops, and of course champagne tents overflowing with yellow clicquot merchandise and bottles on bottles of Veuve Clicquot.

After snapping a few pics and topping off our champagne flutes we headed back down to the polo fields in time for the match to begin. In a polo-perfect setting, everyone watched team Veuve Clicquot take on team Black Watch and took the field during half time to stomp the divots. My favorite part of the day— sipping on this season’s newest addition, Veuve Clicquot Rich in the Rosé Garden and getting to meet Nacho Figuerss and his stunning wife, Delfina after the Black Watch team took home the cup!

Besides picnicking during the polo match and enjoying several glasses of bubbly, I loved seeing everyone’s #ClicquotStyle. I went with a Gingham midi dress, shoes by Chanel and of course a Clicquot umbrella for a polished polo look. I was tempted to sport my Lack of Color boater hat but ended up sticking with a braid, courtesy of Dry Bar, to keep my hair fresh throughout the day. Last year this Self Portrait dress was definitely the popular style of the season, however this year’s fashion was a little more of a mixture. I spotted lots of Zimmerman lace, several fall Fendi florals, House of Herrera stripes, and quite a few midi hemlines. Although it’s nice to take note of the trends and always dress to impress, having an October event in Los Angeles opens the door to an array of ensembles.

All in all the day couldn’t have been more ideal for a polo match accompanied by some of the best champagne in the world! I’m adding another successful year in the books and letting the countdown begin for next year! If you’re new to Polo and need a few tips for tackling the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic, don’t miss this post from last year covering the ins and outs the event!
