Hi, one integral part of the Life Ball is the glamorous fashion show of usually one or more international top designers at the end of the official opening ceremony.

As a special for the 20th Life Ball, the anniversary brought back not one but more than a dozen (!) of Life Ball's former designers, including Jean Paul Gaultier, Agent Provocateur, Pacco Rabanne, Vivienne Westwood, Gianfranco Ferré and more.

The giant mix of top designers, top models, singers and celebrities who also participated in the show, was like a fashion week of top designers, compressed into one electrifying show, that lasted about thirty minutes.

And here we also come to the little drawback of the retrospective. Maybe the dense fashion program was a little too much and because it was so fast on TV, I had to watch it twice and pause every few seconds to appreciate and identify every single look ;)

Here are my favorites of the fashion show. What is your favorite designer and look?

In 2011 the earnings of the Life Ball totaled over 2 million EUR and in the last 19 years the Life Ball thereby supported over 35 national and 59 international AIDS projects in 35 countries. Kudos to Gery Keszler, his team, and the politicians who have made this possible!
