Can you believe that, once again, it’s almost time for the Veuve Clicquot Masters polo?
And because I’m now feeling nostalgic, let’s dip a toe into 2012’s event too…
While just last year’s event feels like a life time ago my mouth is already watering at the thought of all the cheese. While many go for the fabulous fashion, zexy polo players and celeb spotting, I’m shamelessly all about the cheese.
Anyway, this year’s event takes place on Saturday the 1st of March and, as per usual, it’s out at the beautiful Val de Vie in Paarl. This time it’s partnered with exclusive multi-brand fashion house D’Ore who’ll be putting on an extravagant fashion show so Pavillion guests can sip flutes of bubbly while watching models strut the catwalk donning Escada, Cavalli, Armani and more.
If you’d like to attend, make sure you buy your tickets from Computicket ASAP as they sell out super fast. If you opt for Polo Picnic access (R150) you’ll have access to the food trucks and will get to take in the fashion show but if I were you I’d totally spring for Pavilion tickets (R850).
You can then expect an indulgent canapé style lunch, a glass of wine and a perfectly chilled glass of Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label champagne. I’m also willing to bet that Elizabeth Arden will be there once more with a make-up touch up station offering a host of samples (so perhaps taking your teensiest clutch isn’t a good idea).
Now tell me girls, am I going to see any of you there?
