Polo: The Sport of Kings and Nomads

Tomorrow is the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic on Governor's Island which will I'm sure attract throngs of girls trying to catch a glimpse of Nacho Figueras (above) and Prince Harry. If you can't attend this fabulous event, then I suggest you pick up Polo: The Nomadic Tribe, the stunning book by photographer Aline Coquelle. Usually when you think of Polo, you think of England but the book also chronicles polo played in India on Elephants and in Switzerland on snow in addition to Palm Beach, Pakistan and Argentina. It's an amazing book full of gorgeous horse and beautiful men. What could be better than that?! Oh, that it's on sale for $30 at Barneys! Bon Weekend!
