Hugh Jackman, Nacho Figueras, Marc Jacobs and Donna Karan teamed up with our favorite champagne for the annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic on Governors Island, which raised funds for Hope, Help & Rebuild Haiti. Isla Fisher, Kathy and Nikki Hilton, Erin Featherston, Julianna Margulies, Catherine Malandrino, Kathy Griffin, Whitney Port and Andre Balazs, who arrived on a vintage bike, were just a few guests in attendance.
Exclusive events at New York hot spots took place all last week to prepare for yesterday's event. Guests sipped bubbly and rubbed elbows with socialites and celebs as they cheered on their favorite team during the polo match. Wyclef Jean took the stage to give a live performance of "Hips Don't Lie."
Donna Karan showed off a papier-mache bag made from tobacco leaves and other materials, and works from Haitian artists.
Prince Harry, who has played in the event the past two years, was noticeably absent from the festivities. Kathy Griffin told Gatecrasher: "I would have put a frickin' fruit basket on my head like Carmen Miranda and f***ed him. I mean, I would have put on a festive hat and spooned with him."
Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group serve a new line of burgers and small plates from his Blue Smoke rib joint, El Verano Taqueria and Public Fare. Gabriel Kreuther, executive chef at The Modern, created a special multicourse Champagne luncheon and gourmet picnic baskets.
