Hordes of construction workers are working at top speed so that Stella will be ready to open the doors to her first boutique in time for Friday evening's gala opening party. Vogue magazine reports that anticipation is high:"New York is a big city, but it operates like a small town. When someone comes from abroad and decides to invest in retail, the city really opens its arms. It's as if people are saying 'Ah, the visitors have arrived from London'."To add to the mystery, the shop (located at 429 W. 14th Street) remains hidden from view behind a gigantic, sepia toned Linda McCartney photograph.
According to Stella's representative, Sir Paul will not be attending the opening celebrations.
