The ‘Life Ball’ Wasn’t Boring

Hot damn! I need to get to Vienna next year. Here’s some snaps from the 16th annual Life Ball, which is Europe’s biggest HIV/AIDS charity gala. The event started off as mainly gay (ya think?) until celebs got involved and now it’s open to everyone who wants to sex it up in trampy, imaginative outfits and act slutty for a good cause.

Celebs in the house included AMFAR chairwoman and former cat flasher Sharon Stone, Sex and the City’s Kim Cattrall, supermodel Linda Evangelista, and Debbie Harry (looking hot at 100).

“As Samantha (in “Sex and the City”), I’ve always carried a condom in my purse,” Cattrall told the crowd. “The message is more important than the fun (we are having tonight).” Oh, and go see my movie.

The event raised 1.86 million last year for projects battling HIV/AIDS.

I can’t stop looking at Sharon Stone’s skirt. It’s one of those moments when you can’t figure out if something is totally beautiful or ugly. Help me. Is Alan Cumming dressed as Estelle Getty in space in 1968? I wish I’d thought of that.

More photos from the 16th annual Life Ball charity event featuring Kim Cattrall, Sharon Stone, Eve, Marcus Schenkenberg, Barbara Meier, Sophie Ellis Bextor, Debbie Harry and Alan Cumming are after the jump.
