White hot Helena leads a night of high glamour at Vienna ball

It's not easy standing out from the crowd when the crowd in question comprises the most glamorous people on the planet.

But über-model Helena Christensen managed it with grace and panache at this year's Vienna Ball.

The Danish beauty was a vision in white at the glamorous society event, which takes place every year and kicks off the Viennese carnival season.

A 7000-strong crowd of celebrities, dignitaries and socialites gathered in the Vienna State Opera for a night of high culture and glamour. Other guests in attendance included former James Bond Roger Moore, ex-tennis star, Boris Becker and colourful actress Brigitte Nielsen.
