Reality-Show Royalty at the Marriott Marquis

YMA Fashion Scholarship Fund gala. Marriott Marquis, 1535 Broadway, nr. 45th St., 7:15 p.m. Tim Gunn emcees a ceremony honoring Paula Abdul “for her devoted support of young people seeking higher education.” It’s like the Yalta of weekly-elimination talent shows.
Jean-Paul Goude exhibit opening dinner. Hasted Hunt Gallery, 528 W. 20th St., nr. Tenth Ave., 6:30 p.m. Scheduled guests include Sarah Jessica Parker and Janet Jackson. What if Sarah Jessica and Janet hit it off and ended up collaborating on a sexy-shoe-related eighties-dance-pop musical-drama television series? The DVD collections of sororities across the nation would never be the same, that’s what.
