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!
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!
