When Gucci meets and relishes in its equestrian passion, the result is a three day event to remember for 40 of the world’s best riders, including Marc Houtzager, Penelope Leprevost, Ben Maher, Scott Brash, Marcus Ehning and Edwina Tops-Alexander, for patrons and aficionados of the sport like H.R.H Princess Caroline de Hanover, Bruce Springsteen, Marion Cotillard and Edie Campbell and for millions of viewers worldwide: it was the Paris Gucci Grand Prix.
The winner of the EUR 400 000 big prize of this year’s competition is the local hero, Frenchman Kevin Staut, who received the Grand Prix’s cup from the hands of Frida Giannini and Patrizio di Marco, Gucci President and CEO, while the atmosphere at the horsing extravaganza was festive and filled with appreciation for the spectacle of elegance in the arena and, we have to say it, off it as well.
Princess Caroline de Monaco was the one presenting the EUR 180 000 prize at one of the event’s competitions, the Amade Challenge, organised for charity.
