Europe's biggest HIV charity event is a delicious feast for the eyes.

Vienna's Life Ball has as much star wattage, eye-popping fashion, and rumor-mill-grinding as the Oscars or Met Ball. The difference, of course, is that the Life Ball raises millions for HIV causes. This weekend's event held the theme of "Fighting AIDS, Celebrating Life" and it had the usual flash, but with an extra dash in the form of transgender icons Conchita Wurst, who performed her Eurovision-winning song "Rise Like a Phoenix," and New Yorker Amanda Lepore. Check out the scene below, which includes images of Bill Clinton and a va-va-voom Courtney Love.
