CHEZ VERA: Vera Wang had her doubts about the turnout at Thursday’s opening night party for her new store at 158 Mercer Street in New York. “I’m very happy that everyone came. Only I would open a store three months late and in the rain,” she said. Anna Wintour, Shelby Bryan, Glenda Bailey, Tory Burch, Pamela Fiori, Tom Florio, Patrick Robinson, Samantha Boardman, Aby Rosen, Anne and Mario Grauso and Steven Kolb were among the well-wishers. The store’s architect, Michael Gabellini, also received a few pats on the back, but it was Wang’s husband, Arthur Becker, who seemed to be the most celebratory. “I’m pleased it’s over. The reason people have a party when a store is built is because it’s over,” he said. But Becker still had reason to open his wallet for daughters Cecilia and Josephine, who needed a little “dinero” for a night on the town.
