vienna: life ball 09

it may not be vienna's most prominent party, it certainly is the city's most glamorous. we're talking the annual star-studded life ball, kicking off in true o.t.t. style on sat - may 16. taking place each year at city hall, the life ball is europe's biggest hiv/aids charity event. this year themed water, the 17th edition will see a fashion show [as is customary] organized by über-stylist patricia field + the blonds and a gig by pop princess katy perry. © life ball / conny de beauclair
