Last night at the Alzheimer's Association Rita Hayworth Gala, in New York City, Brooke Shields was photographed alongside Princess Yasmin Aga Khan, the second daughter of Hollywood beauty Rita Hayworth. (The Princess gets her royal title from her father, Hayworth's third husband, Prince Aly Khan.) Started by Princess Yasmin in 1985, the galas have helped the Alzheimer's Association raise more than $250 million. Hayworth, who died in 1987, suffered from Alzheimer's in later years, and Princess Yasmin tirelessly worked to raise awareness about the disease at a time when it was little known and even less discussed.
