Hillary Clinton rubbed elbows with New York’s elite at three Hamptons fundraisers on Sunday.

The Democratic front-runner kicked off the day with a pancake breakfast at the East Hampton home of Susan and Alan Patricof, where she was joined by daughter Chelsea Clinton and granddaughter Charlotte.

Next stop: a brunch at fashion designer Tory Burch’s Southhampton home, where the celeb-studded guest list included Real Housewives of New York star Kelly Bensimon, fashion designers Jill Stuart and Donna Karan, and Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.

But it was Bensimon who seemed starstruck – the Real Housewives star tweeted several photos of the luncheon, captioning them, “Impressive lunch with @HillaryClinton @toryburch @AnnaWintour_ #donnakaran @JillStuart. women I look up to.”

Other attendees also took to social media to post fundraiser photos.

At a third campaign event in East Hampton Sunday evening, the star of the night was unquestionably Clinton.

After a brief warm-up act from her husband, former president Bill Clinton, the former secretary of state took the stage for a lengthy speech, and “It was the Hillary show,” one source tells Politico.

The outdoor fundraiser featured a “Hamptons casual” dress code and was attended by about 175 guests, each paying between $500 and $2,700, Politico reports.

Clinton, 67, mingled with guests and posed for pictures at the lunch, where she re-emphasized her support for President Obama’s Iran deal and said she was looking forward to the possibility of facing off against GOP front-runner Donald Trump in the 2016 election.

“Donald Trump [said] he’d be better for women’s health than I would,” she said. “I really hope I get to debate him on that. And everything else.”
