Austrian entrepreneur Richard Lugner makes headlines every year by inviting celebrities to the Opera Ball. It was not this year too.

Lugner's special guests at the 56th Opera Ball Thursday night were former James Bond actor Roger Moore and Danish actress Brigitte Nielsen.

Nielsen, the former wife of action star Sylvester Stallone, and top model Helena Christensen were invited at the ball. Former German tennis great, Boris Becker and ex-foot balling compatriot Lothar Matthaus also made their first appearance.
