Freida Pinto, Andreja Pejic, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Diane Kruger and more of film and fashion’s finest showed us how best dressed is done for summer.

It’s officially June, the month summer begins, and with the unofficial summer kick-off party weekend already behind us (see ya, Memorial Day) and the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic in the rear view, there’s nowhere to go but forward in terms of summer style. Fortunately, the Polo Classic provided all kinds of summer sartorial inspiration by way of gorgeous models and Hollywood stars flaunting their polo field finest — view the summer finery from Maggie Gyllenhaal in super chic all-white, Andreja Pejic in boho-chic epitomized, and Diane Kruger (who manages to be sophisticated in a cut-out jumpsuit) and get a look at the best dressed at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic.
