Life Ball!

The next pictures are from this year’s Life Ball. My friend Tina and I were lucky enough to get tickets this year.  ”The Life Ball is the largest charity event in Europe in the fight against AIDS.” (www.lifeball.org)  It was a great time with a few celebrities, plenty of performances, a fashion show by Dsquared2 and of course, dancing.  All of this took place in and around Vienna’s Rathaus (city hall).  It was definitely cool to dance all night in such a gorgeous building!

May 21st:

Bad lighting, but this was my outfit for the ball.  The “element” this year was air with the theme “spread the wings of tolerance”.  The event puts out a “style bible” every year.  Those who meet the style requirements (well, go above and beyond, actually) can purchase reduced price tickets.  I didn’t have a reduced price ticket, but a costume is always more fun than normal formal wear! I went as some kind of Greek goddess with wings.  I think it turned out alright!

This is Tina!  Her wings were much more intense than mine!
