Vogue hombre: Argentinian hottie Nacho Figueras cohosts and stars in the annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic games in Los Angeles and New York, all while riding in high style as a top Ralph Lauren model.
This fall, the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic returns to Will Rogers State Historic Park for a star-studded day of champions and all things Champagne-chic. In an exclusive interview, cohost and Black Watch team captain Nacho Figueras talks bringing polo to the masses (more than 5,000 fans are set to swarm this year’s VCPC), pairing sport with style, and galloping through LA. Tickets $75–$400. October 15
On this year’s VCPC: I love seeing enthusiasm for polo increase each year. And the launch of Veuve Clicquot Rich [a mixology-inspired Champagne] will add a new twist to the day!
On playing in LA: Will Rogers is the last remaining [public] polo field in the country! Playing where Walt Disney, Clark Gable, and other classic Hollywood celebrities explored their passion for polo is an honor
On pairing polo with fashion: Polo’s rich history includes the influence of royalty and aristos, who turned the polo field into a [catwalk]. The fashion tradition still exists today—all guests are encouraged to show off their best [looks].
On LA style: It has an ease to it, but is very polished: Angelenos are always dressed to impress.
On extra-equine activities: I like going to the beach… and to karaoke parties!
