Fresh off her 2017 Grammys performance and wins, Beyoncé made a rare public appearance at the luxury department store during its regular open hours and spent about three hours shopping.
The 35-year-old pop star, who is expecting twins with husband Jay Z, dressed casually in a black printed T-shirt and shorts and white sneakers and was accompanied by a group of bodyguards.
She did not buy children's items. She walked through several floors, looking at designer gowns, purses, jewelry and shoes. She purchased a $1,225 pair of red Isabel Marart Laith leather knee-high boots, a pair of Ulla Johnson shoes and Nike sneakers, a source told exclusively.
"Beyoncé tried on several dresses but began not to feel well and was tired," the source said.
"She seemed very nice and was very casual," the source added about the singer's visit. "She had several bodyguards around her and everyone in the store was chatting about her being there."
The source also said Beyoncé has bought children's items at Barney's in the past.
Last weekend, Beyoncé showcased her baby bump publicly for the first time, at the 2017 Grammys, where she won two awards, but lost the major ones to Adele, and gave a much-talked about maternity-themed performance.
