Afternoon in the Sun: Riley Keough, Elizabeth Olsen, and Rose Byrne at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic
Just as New York’s social calendar reserves the first Monday in May for the Met Gala, the first Saturday in June is for the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic. The annual match and champagne extravaganza drew a wide range of guests to Liberty State Park on Saturday, from actors like Michael B. Jordan and Riley Keough to models like Jessica Hart to designers like Gigi Burris and Lulu Frost’s Lisa Salzer. There was a sense that people had come from far and wide for the festivities. Equestrian enthusiasts in town from Middleburg, Virginia, and Wellington, Florida, chatted about whose horses were in the day’s match, whether they had a horse on the Black Watch or the Veuve Clicquot team, and so forth.
As guests arrived and made their way from the ferry to the pitch, Elizabeth Olsen confided that she had never actually been to a polo match. “I don’t understand polo—I know!” she said with a laugh. “I actually go to horse races a lot. I grew up going to Santa Anita and Del Mar, but this is all brand new. I’d love to find out where the horses are at some point so I can go up and touch them.”
