There’s never been a better excuse to dress to the nines for a sporting event than the Scottsdale Polo Party this weekend. Big hats, southern gents and wait till you see what the horses wore !
There were record crowds this Saturday for the second annual Polo Party; final attendance figures aren’t in yet, but we have it on good authority that it smashed last year’s attendance of 2300, and will probably come in at around 9,000 !
I am completely resisting the temptation to say they’re not horsin’ around.
Anywho, there was so much to see and do. VIP tents, exotic cars, fashion shows, drinking, eating, dancing, tailgating, manicures (!), polo players, pretty horses, pretty people, oh and yeah, polo matches !
Everyone was dressed to thrill – even the gents !
For the ladies, it was all about the hats !
You might know this lovely. Local PR maven Melissa Rein always looks smashing and she makes it look so effortless. I’d kill for that hat.
Just kiddin, Sheriff Joe. Lighten up.
Will you guys bail me out if I get arrested cuz he looks mad ?!
Let’s cheer him up. This oughta do it…
Awwww. Pink polka dots and flowers on her sunglasses and sandals. Mini fashionistas always bring a smile to your face, don’t they ?
As do horses in pink socks. Just sayin’.
There were, however, some supermodels that seemed intent on stealing the fashion show…
The Arabian horses and their riders were truly magnificent.
Plus, they let you pet them, which was awesome…
You might be able to get your photo taken with Heidi Klum, but you most certainly can not pet her. That would be bad.
Let’s see… what did I miss ?
Oh yeah…rumor has it there was some fantastic polo taking place on the field…
It was truly a splendid day in Scottsdale…
Hope you got a chance to go and take in all the sights, cuz there is really no better place than Scottsdale for Polo. Someone get Ralph Lauren on the phone for next year…
