What do Rosanne Cash and Naeem and Ranjana Khan have in common? Well, a lot of admiration from the Alzheimer's Association, to start. Last night, the Rita Hayworth Gala at Cipriani 42nd Street honored the activist designers while treating guests to a musical performance---and raising upwards of $1.4 million in the process, all of which went directly to cutting-edge research. "No overhead? For those of you business-owners in the audience, that's pretty amazing," said Alexandra Lebenthal, who gave a memorable tribute to her mother, who passed away in March after a 10-year battle with the disease. Linda Fargo, Robert Burke, and Mary Alice Stephenson took to the dance floor (along with at least 40 other women in Naeem Khan spectaculars) before the tandoori chicken was even served. Khan, meanwhile, was still glowing from his stint ringing the bell at the NYSE. "If I rang it at the wrong time, I guess it would have made a big difference in the market," he said excitedly. "I did my best!"
