Jane Fonda (85) was Richard Lugner’s star guest (90) at this year’s Vienna Opera Ballthe to 65th time took place. “It’s extraordinary, I’m glad that Mr. Lugner invited me,” said Jane Fonda according to “Kronen Zeitung” enthusiastic about the major social event in Austria last Thursday evening. Traditionally, the opera ball, which attracted 5,150 guests to the State Opera, was opened by couples of debutantes and ballet performances. “You don’t see this kind of dancing in my country,” explained Fonda after the opening, according to the “Kronen Zeitung”.
The Hollywood actress arrived at the ball in a champagne colored robe, in which she says she felt “like Cinderella”. At midnight she will return her dress and jewelry because everything is only borrowed, the 85-year-old explained. She also has to go to bed early because she has an early flight. Fonda combined gold-colored pumps with small heels, a champagne-colored clutch and sparkling diamond hoop earrings with the high-necked midi dress with long sleeves, a floral ornamental print and a flared skirt. Lugner was happy about his choice in the evening: “She’s a great guest.”
