Matthew McConaughey and Rosario Dawson Stay Cool at the Polo Classic
Matthew McConaughey was joined by Rosario Dawson and Ashley Olsen for the sixth annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic in Liberty Park, NJ, today, and we were live on the scene to take in all the stars in their Summer finest. Matthew braved the sweltering heat in a three-piece linen suit and walked the red carpet with Camila Alves on his arm. While Matthew was doing interviews, Camila took a break from the heat in a shaded area and joked around with reporters. Meanwhile, Ashley stayed cool by making a beeline for the VIP tent where she picked up a yellow parasol to protect herself from the sun. Of course, some celebrities faced the sun with their trusty sunscreen — we chatted with Rosario Dawson and Lo Bosworth, who both revealed that they were wearing SPF 50 and were trying to avoid getting burnt during the match. Rosario also told reporters that while she grew up riding horses, she doesn't have much experience with polo, which she said she only knows about from watching Pretty Woman "a bunch of times."
While the event is centered around a charity polo match, it's also about Summer style. Lo commented to us about everyone else's stylish ensembles at the event. She said, "It's the first year that it hasn't been a theme. In the past, people dressed up in '20s outfits and that kind of thing. So I'm really excited that this year it's just Summer dresses and suits because everyone looks really good." Lo also noted that while sometimes people can get into "costume" for the event, she prefers an understated spectator look. Other celebrity guests at the glamorous event included model Anne V and polo player Nacho Figueras, who had to sit the match out after he injured his leg but sent his 13-year-old son in his place for the charity game.
