At the 8th Annual Veuve Cliquot Polo Classic, held on Saturday at Liberty State Park, an air kiss away from the Statue of Liberty, some came for the thunder of the hooves, some for the tasty vittles and the ambrosia in a bottle, and some for the sensual sunshine after a hateful winter in New York.
But they all came to see, to be seen, and to be seen being seen. And they all dressed to chill.
In the world we live in, nothing is thought to have occurred if it isn’t captured by a camera, so shutters were shuttering.
