There was more than champagne flowing at last weekend's Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic on Governors Island in New York City. Celebs including Naomi Watts, Isla Fisher, and Nicky Hilton showed up in flowy Summer dresses and skirts for the annual polo fundraiser. The event, organized to raise money for Hope Help and Rebuild Haiti, had polo star Nacho Figueras, Marc Jacobs and Donna Karan as fashionable co-host to master-of-ceremonies Hugh Jackman. The ladies' choice of easy florals, sundresses, and hats are casual enough for a day in the sun, but classy enough to warrant a popping of champagne. Seriously, how cute is Naomi Watts in her white dress and oxfords?

The reason? The similarities to Ralph Lauren's Polo fragrance line would cause consumer confusion, not to mention violate the fashion brand's "substantive trademark rights," said Judge Robert Sweet.
As you might imagine, the USPA disagrees with the ruling, especially since a 2006 jury found that the double horseman image, when accompanied by the USPA logo, did not infringe upon the apparel market. So it looks like the USPA will be considering an appeal on this one, particularly because the logo/image dispute has been going on for years between the two organizations. When it comes to fragrances, would you be befuddled by the similar appearances of both brands' logos?
Last week marked the beginning of polo season, so naturally, this weekend was filled with celebrity matches. Prim English women supported their favourite teams on the green grounds in preppy outfits. However, no matter how much you spend to look good from the neck down, the humidity in the UK is something that you're likely to face when it comes to your hairstyle.
Pretty polo regulars like Kate Middleton, Jodie and Jemma Kidd arrived to the matches with relaxed and slightly frizzy hair. Using anti-static shampoos and conditioners, smoothing products and silicone-based serums are a great way to seal off the hair shaft, hence shielding it from the unwanted moisture that creates puffiness and flyaways.
