A limelight-loving Austrian says he's taking Lindsay Lohan to the famous Vienna Opera Ball next month.

Richard Lugner, a quirky 77-year-old entrepreneur known for his young girlfriends and appearance on reality TV, invites a different female star to the flashy event each year and keeps local media in suspense for weeks before divulging his pick.

Lohan has starred in films such as "Mean Girls" and "Herbie Fully Loaded."

Lugner's recent dates include Nicollette Sheridan, Dita Von Teese and Paris Hilton.

This year's Opera Ball takes place Feb. 11. Lugner announced his choice Wednesday.
