Organisers of this year's Life Ball have published a Style Bible to give guests an idea of what to expect from the theme of "The Garden of Earthly Delights".
Taking place at the Vienna City Hall, the 22nd Life Ball on 31 May is an annual event to raise funds for the fight against HIV/AIDS and to hoist a flag for living in solidarity – a theme also reflected in 2014’s slogan: "Love is a bloom growing anywhere".
The Style Bible is an interactive magazine to help people get in the mood for the ball and for guests to be inspired to get creative when thinking about what flamboyant and theatrical costumes to wear on the night.
Characters from Greek mythology and biblical stories are covered with paint and adorned with flowers in scenes that took four days of shooting to finish and included 113 models.
Guests will be able to register for the general ticket sale from March 23 to April 3 but it is already possible to reserve VIP tickets now.
For attendees who want a particularly exclusive atmosphere can purchase an all-inclusive VIP-Ticket for the price of 750 Euros.
