Therapists flee crazy town till after Labor Day, which means you might want to keep a close eye on your “madcap summer fling” person for signs of … unusualness. If you have more money than usual, crash interior designer Nancy Corzine’s cocktail party at her Southampton boutique, a giddy ramp up to the Alzheimer’s Association Rita Hayworth Gala, which will honor socialite and philanthropist Lily Safra, widow of controversially deceased billionaire Edmond Safra. Co-host is Princess Yasmin Aga Khan—let’s see, spawn of Rita Hayworth and a Pakistani prince, and half-sister to Rebecca Welles, daughter of Orson Welles, whom Ms. Hayworth also married. Have you noticed American movie stars just don’t marry like they used to?

[Cocktail Reception in anticipation of the 2008 Alzheimer’s Association Rita Hayworth Gala, Nancy Corzine Southampton, 5 Main Street, Southampton, 6:30 p.m., 212-843-1712]
