Video: Meet Nacho Figueras, professional polo player, face of Polo fragrances… and probably one of the hottest dudes on the planet

Nacho Figueras

Over the course of my career as a beauty editor, I’ve encountered enough female beauty to make one not want to get out of bed in the morning. But men? Well, if memory serves (and who are we kidding, like I’m going to forget), there have been just three occasions where I’ve been lucky enough to witness—and then interview—a rare apex of male attractiveness in the flesh.

David Beckham was one of them. (And I don’t care what anyone says, he does NOT have a high voice. I have the tape to prove it. He addressed me by name, so I’m keeping it forevah.) Another was Carter Oosterhouse, a.k.a. the handsome HGTV handyman. And finally—most recently—I got to meet Nacho Figueras, pro polo player, face of Ralph Lauren Polo fragrances… and perhaps the most handsome of all.

Watch this vid and tell me if you don’t agree:

You’ve gotta love that Latin American attitude, i.e. where he starts talking about beauty being how you carry yourself. If I was a member of that Argentinian gene pool, OF COURSE I’d walk around like I was a supermodel and smile all the time. (But seriously, it’s still good advice. Confidence is 50 percent. And if you don’t feel good about yourself, it’s hard to be giving to others.)

The day after this interview, which took place earlier in the summer, I got to attend my very first polo match (Polo for Heart) as a guest of L’Oréal Canada, who distribute Polo scents. Can this sport please become more popular? Hats, pretty dresses, alcohol during daylight hours—as a spectator, I don’t know what could be better. Do you know about the champagne divot stomp? Here’s a crummy iPhone shot featuring yours truly:

As for Nacho, we got to watch him play, of course, and he spent a good two hours pre-match talking to the crowd and posing for photos. Basically, he was surrounded by females the entire time, as you can see from this pic:

Also? The man REALLY knows how to wear a pair of white jeans. That’s what he played in, too.

Drool.

Tell me:
Is Nacho a fine specimen or what?!?
Are you a fan of Polo fragrances?
Ever attended a polo match?

You mean you met David Beckham in the flesh, and STILL think this Nacho guy is ” perhaps the most handsome of all”?! You must be either out of your freakin’ MIND woman, or else I guess we’ll never fight over the same men… ever! :P Not to disrespect this latin hunk, but he’s no freakin’ Beckham.. :P

You know what? Out of the 3, Carter Oosterhouse was the one who reduced me (and the friend I was interviewing him with) to giggling schoolgirls. Literally – it was embarrassing. He has the most charisma…. Beckham is handsome but Victoria wears the pants. And Nacho is such a family man, it feels a bit wrong. :-)

“eh, he’s not that impressive to me.”

Then you’re blind or have awful taste.

“Not to disrespect this latin hunk, but he’s no freakin’ Beckham..”

Oh please! Nacho destroys David Beckham. Beckham has to be the most overrated man on the planet, with his greasy hair, tattooed arms, and girl-ish voice. He isn’t even on the same planet with Nacho Figueras.

The voice is not girl-ish in person, I swear. I wonder if Victoria made him take voice lessons or something.

He’s very typically Spanish looking. If you go to Spain you’ll meet a lot of such guys. And obviously, they’ll all have sexy Spanish accents.
