NACHO’S NEW PLAY: Nacho Figueras is adding another gig to his résumé. The professional polo player and Ralph Lauren spokesmodel has been appointed by St. Regis Hotels & Resorts as the brand’s first-ever “connoisseur.” While the title might sound a tad vague, a company rep said the hunky Argentine’s responsibilities will include competing in St. Regis-sponsored polo matches and overseeing its recently launched polo-focused Web site, stregispolo.com, which offers general information about the sport as well as listings for upcoming events. Polo is certainly an important area for St. Regis: The Astors, who founded the chain, were prominent figures at the matches held on Governors Island at the turn of the 20th century. Today, it continues to host polo events year-round, including the St. Regis International Cup.
