70-year-old reality TV star Betsey Johnson (The Style Network’s XOX Betsey Johnson, starring her daughter) and comeback kid (she recently filed for bankruptcy) has dug into her extensive archives and rejiggered her youthquake-y creations to present a Bollywood-style runway show. Break out the neon pink bindis. After Johnson’s style spectacle, funny ladies Sandra Bernhard and Taylor Negron will do some stand-up before a dance performance by Rioult Dance NY. The evening is a fundraiser for WEP, the Women’s Education Project, which helps women in Southern India fight poverty through education and career preparation. For every ticket purchased, a young woman is able to attend WEP programs and college courses for one year. The group’s goal is to fund two years of college education for 100 students.
