Kim Kardashian Arrives in Austria to Escort 81-Year-Old Richard Lugner to the Vienna Opera Ball (PHOTOS)

Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner, and baby North West got quite the greeting as they arrived in Vienna, Austria on February 27. We're talking flower arrangements, photo ops, and a meet-and-greet with Austrian society figure, 81-year-old Richard Lugner. Not a bad way to start the trip, eh?

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians stars are in Austria for the Vienna Opera ball, one of the biggest events in Austria's social calendar. But 33-year-old Kim isn't just any other guest. Millionaire Richard Lugner paid Kim to be his escort to the ball — something he's been doing with female celebrities since 1992. Other escorts through the years? Katie Price, Paris Hilton, Carmen Electra, and more.

The ball takes place tonight, February 27, so we'll be on the lookout for glammed-up photos of Kim and her Austrian date!
