Stop us if you've heard this one: Bill Clinton, a bearded drag queen and thousands of people covered in glitter, feathers and body paint party in an old European city hall...

Life Ball, the annual HIV/AIDS fundraiser and over-the-top costume ball held in Vienna, took place this weekend, attracting everyone from celebs like Courtney Love, Orange Is the New Black's Taryn Manning to Ke$ha to fashion people like Vogue Italia's Franca Sozzani and David LaChapelle to nightlife leaders like Susanne Bartsch and Ladyfag to, yes, our future First Man, William J. Clinton. Per custom, there was also a big party plane that transported guests like Amanda Lepore and Gage Ofthe Boone from NYC to Vienna and greeted them with a red carpet runway on the tarmac. We gathered the 20 best, worst and weirdest pics Instagram had to offer, below.

We hear Life Ball has the best dinner rolls, all the more reason to bring your Birkin to the ball so you can take some home.

Bill needs to be wearing approximately 70% more glitter.

As great as this photo of Amanda Lepore is, Courtney Love's caption FTW.

We're not going to let ourselves make any cheesy "Natalie Kill-ed it jokes." Whoops.

Boys going "hard in da paint."

No words.

It's interesting that during one of the most cuckoo bananas party weekends of the year, Ke$ha decides to look incredibly normal.

Milk knows her way around a pair of floral bunny ears.

Oh to be a fly on the wall when Conchita Wurst smiled politely as Jean Paul Gaultier talked her ear off.

Is this even for real?

We said it before and we'll say it again: Courtney Love's Instagram captions are pure poetry.

This might be one of the few cases when the term "wiener schnitzel" at Life Ball isn't a euphemism.
