On Saturday afternoon, celebrities, VIPs and friends gathered at Will Rogers State Historic Park for the third-annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic, Los Angeles.  Remember the first one in 2010?.  Celebrating the sport of polo, the highly-anticipated event returned to the West Coast for a third year to continue to spread the excitement of polo.  Co-hosts Rachel Zoe, Rodger Berman, Nacho Figueras, Delfina Blaquier (Nacho’s recently pregnant wife!), and Vanessa Kay, President of Veuve Clicquot US, welcomed Angelenos to Will Rogers State Historic Park for a beautiful day of polo, sun, and champagne.
