The 2015 Cartier International Polo Cup in Dubai
With special guest – Olivia Palermo
Under the patronage and in the presence of HRH Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein, Wife of HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Cartier International Polo Challenge went ahead on Saturday despite the sandstorm with wind speeds hitting up to 70km per hour.
Hosted at the Desert Palm Resort & Polo Club, this was the first time in Cartier international polo history that six teams battled it out for the desired trophy in what has now become considered as the most celebrated tournament of the year. The Desert Palm team took home the celebratory gong for the 2015 competition, after defeating the UAE Polo Team 10-4.
Attendees included the ambassador of La Martina, the Marques of Blandford George Spencer-Churchill, Lebanese singer Ragheb Alama and It-girl Olivia Palermo. Spectators and special guests enjoyed a sumptuous afternoon tea and were treated to preview the new Clé de Cartier watch creations at the charmingly transformed Cartier Villa.
