Gladys Berejiklian braves a smile as she enters her Sydney office in a $1,000 outfit after her ICAC grilling










Former NSW Prime Minister Gladys Berejiklian put on a brave face on Tuesday after losing her job and facing a quirk in a corruption investigation.

The 51-year-old politician, who is at the center of an ICAC probe, had a spring in her step when she stepped out in Sydney in a chic $1,000 outfit.

Berejiklian looked like she was dressed up for Melbourne Cup day and smiled at photographers as she left her house and went to her office.

Holding a cake in a box, Berejiklian looked effortlessly chic in a bright red polka dot dress and a black blazer.

She paired the spring look with expensive accessories, including wedges from Salvatore Ferragamo, which cost about $1,000.

She carried her belongings in a black TSD12 bag, which costs $150, and hid her gaze behind designer sunglasses.

On Monday, Berejiklian slapped a sombre suicide note as she addressed the people of NSW after packing up her whims for the corruption watchdog.

The former NSW Prime Minister said the past month had been “extremely difficult” for her, but that everything she had done was in the public interest.

“I want to say to everyone that it is my honor and privilege to serve you in my role in public life,” she said.

“What I have noticed is a difficult situation, but I know that many people are having a hard time in the community.

“I intend to move on with my life and I want to thank everyone for my support every day I have dealt with the public.

“It has been my honor and privilege to serve the community.”

The corruption investigation into Berejiklian’s secret love affair with Daryl Maguire was concluded after he moved behind closed doors for a while following a fiery morning when the former prime minister was offended over texts from the disgraced Liberal MP.

Central to the evidence heard were text messages she received from Mr Maguire in July 2018, demanding that she get a second phone and download a Chinese messaging app.

Berejiklian told ICAC she did not have a second phone and never looked for one.

She said she completely rejected the claim that her secret relationship with Mr Maguire affected the way she carried out her public duties.

“That was always separate from my public responsibilities… that’s what I’m always so strong for,” she said.
