Cartier have done it again and proven that a pass to the Cartier International Dubai Polo Challenge is indeed the one to have if you are serious about sport, socialising and some fantastic fashion. Whilst the corks popped, Porches paraded around the paddock and the hungry nibbled on foie gras while playing fabulous.

On the field the competition was fierce with team Desert Palm taking the trophy (just) from Cartier. Huge congrats to all teams who took part and huge kudos to the one and only female player in the tournament Her Highness Sheikha Maitha Bint Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

Off the field, the certain accessory du jour was a Chanel handbag in every style and shape you can imagine. Feast your eyes on the very best the gorgeous day had to offer…
