Hillary Clinton went on a private shopping spree at Bergdorf Goodman early Tuesday morning, sparking further speculation that she’s suiting up for a 2016 presidential run.
Hillary was spotted entering the posh department store by a side entrance at 9 a.m., with a small entourage of security and assistants.
Bergdorf Goodman, which opens to the public at 10 a.m., is famed for its personal shoppers, particularly Betty Halbreich, who was the breakout star of the 2013 documentary “Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf’s.”
Hillary, a low-key dresser and the oft purveyor of the humble pantsuit, has steadfastly refused to make fashion an issue. While secretary of state, in 2010, she dressed down a moderator in Kyrgyzstan who asked, “Which designers do you prefer?” Hillary responded, “Would you ever ask a man that question?”
But she’s been known to rock an Oscar de la Renta gown — she presented the CFDA Founder’s Award to the iconic designer last year — or a Chanel jacket.
A rep for Bergdorf declined to comment. Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines didn’t respond.
