Apart from fabulous fashion and a Best Dressed competition, Elizabeth Arden will pamper guests at the Elizabeth Arden Pamper House where their top international make-up artists will treat ladies with their latest skin care and make-up. Ladies will also be able to have their hair curled or pinned by the professional stylists from Be Première Hair.
Some great entertainment is also in store. Guests are invited to get teams ready for the Petanque Boules tournament on the grass, and be dazzled by the internationally acclaimed act Good Luck who will be headlining the musical entertainment for the day. This year also welcomes an ‘Equus Lounge’ After Party ensuring the polo revelers will dance the night away.
