Veuve Clicquot Masters Polo Cape Town 2013 at Val de Vie Estate

31 days to go until South Africa’s most glamorous polo event on its annual social calendar, the VeuveClicquot Masters Polo 2013. In its third year running, the event will be hosted Saturday 23rd February at the beautiful Val de Vie Estate just outside Cape Town.

Expected to draw in crowds of more than 1200 guests this year, the premium event boasts a guest list of celebrities, fashionable socialites, avid polo lovers and of course, the dazzling elite. It’s been years upon years that I have been eyeing this event and this year will be testament to whether or not I crack the nod and make things happen (or at least the universe).

As with any ‘fashion’ event, the Veuve Clicquot Masters Polo encourages its attendees to put on their best hats and exhibit their best outfits for the year. With a range of designers to choose from one expects that competition will be tough to spot who really comes out tops as the best dressed. Jeannie D and Jo Ann Strauss are seasoned fashion veterans and I’m expecting some killer threads from them. But as for the guys, well, I don’t foresee anything special and I’m hoping to be surprised, made speechless and blown away.

The day usually requires gents to be seen in a summer suit, hopefully there will be some playing with colour, fabrics and cuts to create some excitement. The only restriction one should consider is the fact that you’re ‘expected’ to wear a suit. As to it’s colour, shape, fabric and details – that’s entirely yours to individualize.

Anyway, more about that later. Here are the details you need to know now!
