NEW MONEY: The designer contingent was deep on Wednesday night at the New Museum’s 35th anniversary spring gala at Cipriani Wall Street. Proenza Schouler’s Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez, Calvin Klein’s Francisco Costa, Adam Kimmel, Narciso Rodriguez and Cynthia Rowley all joined a crowd that included such contemporary art-world heavies as Cindy Sherman, Chuck Close, Jeff Koons and George Condo. The event, which honored artist Paul McCarthy, raised $1.6 million for the downtown museum, thanks in part to an auction with lots that included a portrait session with Condo. “I want that,” said Chloë Sevigny, who served as an honorary chair alongside Nadja Swarovski, before guests sat for dinner. “I brought my Amex.”
