Nacho Figueras Named St. Regis Polo Connoisseur

Nacho Figueras has a lot to be proud of these days. With his gigs as professional polo player and Ralph Lauren spokesmodel, this Latin heartthrob already had his hands full. But today it was announced that Figueras has been named the first-ever St. Regis Connoisseur.

His duties will entail providing guests with access to top-tier polo matches and experiences around the world. And he will also work with St. Regis in creating an exclusive polo website featuring a global calendar of events, information on the fundamentals of the sport, what to wear—obviously—as well the inside scoop on his personal polo techniques and travel experiences.

And St. Regis, who’s founding family, the Astors, were prominent figures at matches held on Governors Island, has always been close to the polo world. An added bonus for those of you in the Far East this weekend: The St. Regis Singapore partnered with the Singapore Polo Club to offer VIP guests its signature afternoon tea at the Audemars Piguet International Polo Gold Cup Match taking place this Sunday, June 6.
