Gladys Berejiklian totes a $3,000 Louis Vuitton handbag and wears $860 Ferragamo heels

She may have resigned as NSW premier but Gladys Berejiklian hasn’t swapped her power suits for activewear just yet.

The 51-year-old politician was spotted popping out from her electorate office in Northbridge, on Sydney’s north shore, six days after announcing her resignation.

With a flick of her bobbed brunette hair, Berejiklian made her way into the building decked out in a designer ensemble.

She was seen toting a $3,000 Louis Vuitton Cluny MM mongram handbag and stepped out in a pair of $860 Ferragamo Mirabel wedge pumps.  

Berejiklian also wore a black knee-length shift dress, which she paired with a cropped black, grey and white tartan blazer.

In addition to designer shoes and handbags, Berejiklian also owns a Breitling 1884 watch, valued at $6,390.

The ex-premier – who will go down in history as one of the popular to ever grace NSW Parliament – accessorised simply with a pendant necklace and large stud earrings. 

Perhaps the only touch of fashion missing was going for a standard disposable blue face mask to meet Covid rules.

Berejiklian stood down as state leader on Friday amid allegations by the state’s corruption watchdog she breached the public’s trust during her secret five-year relationship with ex-Wagga Wagga MP Daryl Maguire.

She is now only serving her local Willoughby electorate, having declared she will leave state parliament altogether once a by-election for her seat is held.

Her resignation has also sparked speculation she could make a run for federal politics once the NSW Independent Commission Against Corruption concludes its investigation. Many are saying she would make a fantastic prime minister after leading NSW so ably through the Covid pandemic.

Asked whether she may make the switch to federal politics, Prime Minister Scott Morrison told Sunrise on Tuesday she ‘has a lot more to contribute, I know that’. 

The prime minister though acknowledged has ‘issues’ to work through, a reference to the ongoing ICAC investigation. 

‘I join with the many thousands if not millions of people from New South Wales who are very sad that she has had to step down,’ Morrison said.

While her successor Dominic Perrottet updated his profile within hours of securing the state’s top job, Berejiklian’s account still has not changed. 

Perrottet, 39, shared a picture of him being sworn in as Premier at Government House on Tuesday afternoon and promptly updated his Instagram bio as: ‘Premier of NSW’.  

Berejiklian – or those that handle her account –  have been a little more reluctant to remove the same line from her bio.

A widely popular premier, her Willoughby office and home were awash in a sea of flowers and supportive signs left by fans over the weekend, and a petition to keep her on as premier gained more than 75,000 signatures. 

After her resignation, Perrottet – from the Liberal Party’s conservative faction – then defeated Rob Stokes 39-5 in a party room ballot on Tuesday morning to become NSW’s youngest premier with Stuart Ayres as his deputy. 

The father-of-six has vowed to be a ‘family premier’ and prioritise the plight of working families around NSW.

He also said his government will make no major policy or personnel changes as the state emerges from lockdown.  

Perrottet pledged to maintain policy and cabinet continuity after Berejiklian’s  resignation, with no cabinet reshuffle in the short term and no major policy changes. 

He said he would maintain his position at least until summer.
