Australian studmuffin Hugh Jackman welcomed summer in New York as the master of ceremonies at the annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic yesterday on New York’s Governer’s Island. Dressed in a dapper beige suit, Jackman was joined by fellow Aussies Naomi Watts and Isla Fisher as well as designer Donna Karan and Nicki Hilton.
The polo match, attended last year by HRH Prince Harry, raised money for Urban Zen Hope Help & Rebuild Haiti, an organization that helps rebuild communities in Haiti following the January 2010 earthquake. According to the Daily Mail, Wyclef Jean tweeted about the event, “‘[T]his is not just another polo Game, this polo game will bring awareness to haiti.”
Argentinian polo player Nacho Figueras knocked a few balls around while looking drop dead gorgeous in his Ralph Lauren polo shirt, while Marc Jacobs, Amber Heard, Whitney Port, Paul Haggis, and Jeisa Chiminazzo mixed with the likes of Lorenzo Martone, Kathy Hilton, Kathy Griffin, Andre Balazs, Keith Lieberthal, Julianna Margulies, and Sam Jaeger.
