The Life Ball took place on Saturday in Vienna. The annual giant AIDS fundraiser includes two parts: a fashion show featuring celebrities and models on the catwalk and a fancy fabulous party. This year, Patricia Field put the fashion show together, highlighting designers The Blonds. Saturday's ball was the first installment of the Life Ball's four-year themed series of Water, Earth, Air and Fire. The Water theme brought out some very special costumes. Katy Perry dressed as a seashell for her performance. Pam Anderson sported a gold lamé body suit (what else?) for her turn down the catwalk with a giant boom box. One reveler wore what we can only describe as fish boobs. And Bill Clinton attended too, wearing perhaps the farthest possible thing from fish boobs. See those photos and more in the slideshow!
Eva worked the mermaid silhouette. You can't tell from this picture, but she was actually standing on a wheeling dolly so she wouldn't have to try moving her legs in that thing. Her husband just kind of pulled her around all night. (We kid.)
Oh this woman is a goddess. The shape of her coat is not unlike a turtle shell. Yet she appears vexed. What could she be looking at?
The Amazing Monokini
Well hello, sir! That is a remarkably enhancing monokini. Remember, Bill Clinton could have been sitting right in front of him.
"Anyone need a car wash?"
Sea Anemone Lady
Well we think it's a lady. We suppose it could be a dude in there.
One fish, two fish, red fish, BOOB FISH.
The S&M Merman Hat
Made all the more kinky by the salivating dolphin directing his fangs at the human's ass.
That is one encrusted body suit. She's hot and she's cold. She's pantsless and crusty. Blah blah...
In case you forgot Pat Field was the Master of Ceremonies, her army of Aladdin-esque shirtless guys should remind you. Wait -- isn't that the wrong Disney movie?
This is just to give your eyes a break to look at a somewhat normal outfit. Courtesy of Stella McCartney.
And this fits the theme because ... it's waterproof?
Some sweaters have snow scenes. Model Toni Garrn's dress has a sea scene that sadly resembles a shower curtain.
Ivana Trump's dress looks like it has an accidental face on it. An evil, angry face.
And Bill Clinton looks suitably freaked out.
We almost forgot all about Fran Drescher! Her dress isn't going to make us remember.
One word: Perfection.
