Media Release -29 Jan 2016
Veuve Clicquot is painting the city yellow in 2016 as they bring the “sport of kings” back to Cape Town for the 6th year. Shimmy Beach Club will once again host the extravagant after party at Val de Vie on 5 March 2016, which draws socialites, fashion cognoscente, celebrities and equestrian lovers alike.
Val de Vie Estate will play host to this glamorous event, surrounded by the mountains and vineyards of the famous Paarl-Franschhoek valley, one of the most spectacular polo estates in the world.
Inspired by Madame Clicquot – the theme for this year’s event is ‘Let Life Surprise You’. With this, the champagne house will bring a new energy to the event; a luxurious, playful, bright and innovative spirit. The dress code for the 2016 Veuve Clicquot Masters Polo is ‘Polo Chic in bright & bold’ and the judges will be on the look-out for the best dressed.
The event continues to attract the attention of international VIPs such as the Royal Warrant ofAppointment for the Royal House of Belgium and renowned couture designer Fabienne Delvigne, as well as the US cast of Black Sails — including Zach McGowan, Hannah New, ClaraPaget and Luke Arnold and Hakeem Kae-Kazim.
Some of South Africa’s most revered celebrities such as Lee-Ann and Nicky van der Walt, Jeannie D, ElanaAfrika, Liezel van der Westhuizen, Tarina Patel, Jen Su, Maps Maponyane, Katlego Maboe, David Tlale, Siv Ngesi, have also attended the polo. More than 2,000 people attended including international media titles such as Tatler, Vogue Italy, Savana and CNBC Africa.
“For the first time in the history of this event, guests can now purchase tickets to the Veuve Clicquot VIP lounge, previously by invite only. These are however limited,” shares event co-owner and Val de Vie Events MD, Simone de Wet.
The day will end with an after party hosted by Shimmy Beach Club, where guests can dance the night away without having to leave the estate. The party is open to Veuve Clicquot Masters Polo ticket holders only and starts at 18:00, continuing until 00:00. An array of bright and bold exotic entertainment can be expected as Shimmy joins forces with The Sunroom to bring an extravagant show to the Veuve Clicquot Masters Polo 2016. Two of Shimmy’s regular female DJs, Minx and Kimmy K, will keep the dance floor heaving until the curtains draw at midnight. Party-goers have the opportunity to book VIP and Premier booths to make the evening more exclusive. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your booth.
Rikki’s Taxis will be on hand for guests who wish to safely travel to Shimmy Beach Club, in the V&A Waterfront for another after party.
