The Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic was held on Saturday (October 14) in Pacific Palisades, California, with a number of stars in attendance for the day of sport.
Tracee Ellis Ross: This look brought a big smile to my face, as I was immediately charmed by the Agnes B printed top and mustard-yellow Celine trousers. The star of the show was the Eric Javits hat, though, with Stuart Weitzman ‘Marlon’ shoes completing the typically quirky look. The shoes were funky, to be sure, but it was the Louis Vuitton clutch that I could have done without.
Camilla Belle: This Adeam Resort 2018 asymmetrical frock offered up such a delicately feminine vibe, with her pink lip echoing that spirit. Her block heels ensured there would be no sinking into the grass.
Kate Hudson: I loved the playfulness of this candy-stripe Johanna Ortiz Resort 2018 wide-leg jumpsuit, all tied up with its girlish bow. But, I would have been fearful that Kate would trip on the pants that puddled on the ground. The giant rosebud earrings were such fun as was the Clare V. ‘Petite Alice’ tote.
Katharine McPhee: With another case of uber-long, wide-leg trousers, my feeling was the same on Katharine’s; they needed a bit of a trim. That said, there was a lovely sense of bohemian romance that she introduced to the look with her off-the-shoulder cropped blouse and braided updo.
Ashley Madekwe: This 3.1 Phillip Lim dress featured something of a directional sense of distressed deconstruction mixed with the softness of its ballet-pink hue. But, I’m not sure it said ‘polo’ to me.
Lindsey Vonn: Sweet and simple, Lindsey donned a floral frock from the Prabal Gurung Pre-Fall 2017 collection paired up with electric-blue shoes for an added flourish.
Ali Larter: Also opting for florals, Ali wore a bold Erdem keyhole dress with a fresh bob to go with those audacious petals.
Sophia Bush: Her Altuzarra ‘Dorothea’ dress kept comfort at the forefront when paired with white dress sneakers. Eva Fehren jewelry completed her look.
Alicia Sanz: The pastel shades of Alicia’s Markarian Resort 2018 one-sleeve dress made for a striking juxtaposition with her jet-black mane. UNOde50 jewels and Marskinryyppy ‘Pauwau’ clear strap sandals completed the look.
Victoria Justice: With a new, playful twist on suiting, this sky-blue Rachel Zoe suit was an adorable way to wear the trend. I would have much preferred a block heel or sandal to these Nine West tapestry booties, but her Quay Australia shades were a cool-girl finish.
Laura Dern: I’m not sure if it was the colour, the granny’s bedspread print, or the silhouette, but something about this frock seemed a bit mumsy and lacklustre on Laura.
Aja Naomi King: Exploded lace took top billing in this off-the-shoulder Shoshanna frock that brought a sense of girly whimsy in the batwing sleeves.
Abigail Spencer: I liked the daintiness of this Huishan Zhang Resort 2017 dress until I noticed the rather unusual squished underboob effect. Like Kate, she also carried the Clare V. ‘Petite Alice’ tote.
Regina King: With the simplicity of her all-white top and trousers, Regina relied on her side-braided hair and metallic clutch to bring a stylish jolt to the look.
Nicole Scherzinger: Despite the flowing silhouette of this maxi dress, it had plenty of bold attitude thanks to its graphic pattern and Nicole’s dramatic half-up ponytail. Alexander White ‘Eva’ sandals, Alexis Bittar earrings and a pearl PrettyLittleThing clutch completed the look that perhaps felt just a tad bit contrived with the styling.
