Champagne is often associated with celebratory moments and opulent occasions of indulgence.
And, naturally, these require an appropriate dress code, after all, fashion and celebrations go hand-in-hand.
The Veuve Clicquot Masters Polo Cape Town is on Saturday 4 March and here you will find the perfect example of luxury-meets-fashion, and the sport of kings.
The lifestyle and polo tournament, held at the scenic Val de Vie Estate, South Africa’s first polo and wine super-estate in Paarl, is a must-attend on the social calendar. It brings together celebrities, socialites, equestrian sports lovers, the business elite and influencers for an eventful afternoon.
With the theme this year being “Clicquot Journey”, taking inspiration from the iconic capitals of the world where Veuve Clicquot is enjoyed, your outfit can be inspired by the fashion hubs such as Paris, Milan, New York and Los Angeles. Here at home, take a leaf out of South African actress and model Nomzamo Mbatha’s fashion moments.
Mbatha holds the title of 2016 Veuve Clicquot Masters Polo best-dressed winner. She returns as the host this year.
“Mbatha is charming, cool, poised and fashionable. As the event continues to grow in following and popularity, we look to reinvent and add newness to the event experience,” said Anina Malherbe-Lan, co-owner of the event and chief executive of publicity company Vivid Luxury.
“As we execute the seventh edition of the event, we look forward to an event exclusively hosted by a female.”
Mbatha, best known for her TV role on popular soapie Isibaya, said: “After my surprise best-dressed win last year, I am thrilled to return to Val de Vie as the host. I look forward to toasting to the sport of kings as I undertake my MC duties during the event. Look out for some surprises in keeping with the ‘Clicquot Journey’ theme”.
