Sienna Miller and Penélope Cruz Don Their Summer Best at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic

Saturday was sweltering. Yet, perhaps that was fitting for the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic, New York City’s hottest social event of the summer.

Celebrities and stylish sports fans flocked to Liberty State Park, where Nacho Figueras, Delfina Blaquier, and Team Veuve Clicquot took on Team Liberty Comets with the city skyline sparking in the background. Sienna Miller sent photographers into a tizzy when she arrived in a white Valentino frock paired with Mansur Gavriel shoes. She was fresh off a trip to France for the 2019 Louis Vuitton Resort show, which, she said, quite resonated with her. “There was a print on some of these boots that really likened to my psychedelic rave years,” she said, laughing.

Arriving soon after her was Penélope Cruz in a polka-dot Zac Posen dress. She, too, was recently in France. Her movie Everybody Knows received positive buzz at the Cannes Film Festival—not just because of its charismatic actors, but because of the news that Cruz received the same salary as her husband, Javier Bardem. “I don’t want it to be forgotten in one year, two years. This has to be the beginning of a very necessary change,” Cruz said about the fight for equal pay. “And in our industry, we have to speak for women everywhere.”

Polo, Darling: Penelope Cruz, Sienna Miller Take in Annual Veuve Clicquot Classic

The Veuve Clicquot annual Polo Classic at Liberty State Park is for many the official kickoff of the summer social season, and, overpowering predicted rain showers, Saturday’s affair proved no different.

Having been ferried across the Hudson early in the sweltering afternoon, the preppiest among New York’s social crowd joined in alongside the usual celebrity attendees for the occasion.

“Riverdale” actor Casey Cott blotted himself with a paper towel between interviews, not far from where a publicist was liberally spraying a reporter in sunblock during the break in the action.

“Ooh, my first drip of boob sweat,” a woman in a crop top and flouncy skirt said to those around her, as she fixed her hair.

“Tequila shots to the face,” a seersuckered young man said buoyantly to his comrade upon their arrival. “You mean Champagne shots,” his friend countered him.

Yes, it was the drink of the afternoon, of course. After posing along the carpet, this year’s VIP crowd of Penelope Cruz, Sienna Miller, Sam Rockwell, Laura Harrier, Freida Pinto, Darren Criss, Winnie Harlow, Gayle King and more were ushered inside (where else?) the VIP tent for glasses of Champagne and shelter beneath chandeliers to mingle and take in the afternoon’s match.

Maxine Waters, Gigi Hadid and Samantha Bee at Glamour Awards

Anyone searching for female power would have found a flood of it at Glamour’s three-hour-long Women of the Year Awards, held on Monday night at the Kings Theater in Brooklyn.

Beneath an ornate ceiling, one accomplished woman after another took the stage, encouraging the audience to do more, to aim higher and to fear less. It was like thumbing through an all-star issue of Glamour magazine.

Drew Barrymore spoke off-the-cuff about her friend Samantha Bee, the late-night host and an honoree. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, author of “We Should All Be Feminists,” introduced Maria Grazia Chiuri, the first female creative director of Dior, who used the title of Ms. Adichie’s book on T-shirts in her first collection for the label.

Kendall Jenner Drinks Rosé, Talks Safety Pin Earrings and Horses at Veuve Clicquot’s Polo Classic

There are a handful of sacred calendar days every year that you simply don’t mess with—the fourth Thursday in November is for Thanksgiving, the first Monday in May is for the Met Gala, and, as in-the-know New Yorkers have come to learn, the first Saturday June is reserved for one thing: Veuve Clicquot’s annual Polo Classic. Saturday’s festivities marked the 10th annual iteration of the brouhaha. It’s no secret that the party draws in a litany of A-listers, influencers, and Clicquot fans of all sorts—Nicole Kidman, Alessandra Balazs, Keri Russell, Lucy Hale, and Freida Pinto were just a few in the mix this year—but to mark this year’s 10th annual Champagne shower, VC upped its game by hiring none other than Kendall Jenner to make an appearance.
