VIENNA (AP) – It’s Vienna’s biggest party _ and its most outrageous _ where guests in tuxedos rub shoulders with others wearing little more than body paint.
But despite the revelry, the city’s 20th annual Life Ball on Saturday had a serious purpose _ raising money for AIDS research and helping victims infected with the HIV virus.
The celebs attending include actress-model Mila Jovovich, supermodel Naomi Campbell, actor Antonio Banderas and fashion designers Angela Missoni and Eva Cavalli .
Also taking part is former U.S. President Bill Clinton who thanked organizers for donating to his foundation’s drive to prevent the birth of HIV-infected children in developing countries.
