There is one crucial principle that stands out for the design and outfits of the Life Ball: It’s the colorful, life-affirming world of the individual artworks that should serve as inspiration for the outfits. Following the outfit itself, it’s the extravagant headdresses as well as glamorous hair styling and make-up that are the most important elements of the Life Ball styling. Outfits with red ribbons or creative add-ons that are considered a symbol for safer sex receive a bonus from the Style Police. Guests who intentionally insult or hurt other peoples’ feelings with their styling – e.g. by using religious or political symbols – will be denied access to the Life Ball. Furthermore, access will be denied to those wearing jeans, t-shirts, sneakers, or any other kind of casual clothing. Further information is available at:

Due to the large number of requests for the only 3,780 available Life Ball tickets, and in order to guarantee equal opportunities for all those interested, a random selection determines who receives a purchase option for a maximum of two tickets. Therefore, it was once again the Goddess Fortuna  who decided who receives a purchase option for the Life Ball 2017.
