Life Ball 2014

The Life Ball in Vienna is the biggest charity event in Europe, supporting people with HIV or AIDS. The event is organized by the nonprofit organization AIDS LIFE, which was founded in 1992 by Gerry Keszler and Torgom Petrosian. Their organization supports other aid organizations devoted to helping people who are HIV-positive or have AIDS.

The Life Ball is one of the biggest and most spectacular annual charity events in the world and has attracted strong international interest attention. It is taking place every year at the end of May on Viennese city hall square & inside of the Viennese city hall.
The opening gala features a wide variety of music, from operetta to pop, national and international stars, and the fashion show on the huge Red Ribbon stage. Guests can dance in the various patios and rooms of the city hall as they enjoy the offerings of the many bars and buffets.

I usually watch the live stream on TV and I really enjoy the colorful costumes from the various people as well as the fashion show (which is sponsored by a well known designer varying every year).
This year the dress code is "garden of eden".

Here are some of my favorite outfits of tonight's event (all pictures by APA) :

Have you ever seen or been to the Vienna Life Ball? Which costume would you dress up?
