While Donald Trump might snub his SNL impersonator Alec Baldwin, Hillary Clinton clearly enjoys her double, Kate McKinnon. 

Enough, in fact, to have been spotted having a cozy dinner with McKinnon and a third party, likely SNL's head writer Sarah Schneider. 

Before seeing Glenn Close in 'Sunset Boulevard' on Wednesday evening, the defeated presidential candidate had dinner with Kate McKinnon at Orso restaurant, where a source toldPage Six that 'lots of laughter emanated from their table'. 

The source also said that a rowdy restaurant-goer began the chant 'Lock him up!' as a riff on Trump's anti-Clinton cheer. 

 The last time that the two Hillarys were pictured together was in an SNL sketch (pictured) in the fall of 2015, before Clinton had cinched the Democratic nomination

The last time that the two Hillarys were pictured together was in an SNL sketch in the fall of 2015, before Clinton had cinched the Democratic nomination. 

The three women pictured together prompts the question of whether or not the former Secretary of State will be making another appearance on SNL. However, it is not confirmed that the third woman is Schneider, as she was in Paris earlier this week.

Though she would likely rather be in Washington, the former first lady seems to be making the most of her failed presidential bid, spending time catching shows and mingling with the stars she counts as close friends. 

Later that evening, the former first lady was a special guest in the audience at hit musical Sunset Boulevard at The Palace Theater on Broadway, where she was greeted with a round of applause and a standing ovation.

She was pictured backstage at the performance with six-time Academy Award nominee Glenn Close, who plays Norma Desmond in the show, and has also impersonated Hillary in a performance at the 2016 Tony Awards.

Clinton was happy to pose for pictures with the cast backstage - who looked equally pleased to have their pictures taken with her. 

Andrew Lloyd Webber's Broadway musical opened Monday to rave reviews, and Clinton arrived at the theater about three minutes before curtain, and was one of the first people to see the show.

But, her attempts to slip in unnoticed did not exactly go to plan, and she was greeted by cheering audience members who recognized her immediately - despite her new haircut.

The ceremony was emceed by CNN's Anderson Cooper and former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg was also in attendance.

Speaking at the US Postal Service ceremony dedicating a series of 11 stamps honoring de la Renta, Clinton said the designer was an immigrant who had come to America to pursue his dreams 'and aren't we proud and grateful that he was?'

'Let there be many, many more immigrants with the love of America that Oscar de la Renta exemplified every single day,' she added.   

De la Renta, who died in 2014 at age 82, dressed every first lady from Jacqueline Kennedy to Michelle Obama. First daughter Ivanka Trump carried on the tradition by wearing his company's designs during last month's inauguration festivities. 

During the event, Clinton recounted personal stories she and her family shared with the iconic Dominican designer. 

One of those moments she recalled included when she traveled to the fashion legend's home country to do humanitarian work following a hurricane that devastated thousands. 

'Anna was right, when you are a friend of Oscar's, you were a friend in good times and dark times,' Clinton said.  

One of the stamps featuring the designer, who died of complications from cancer, is a single black-and-white portrait image.

The other 10 stamps highlight details from gowns and dresses designed by De La Renta. 

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who joined Clinton, Anna Wintour and others at the ceremony at New York's Grand Central Terminal, also praised de la Renta as a proud Dominican immigrant.

'Our country is great because we welcome people from around the world. They come here to work hard and build a better future for their families, no matter where they come from,' said Bloomberg, a political independent who endorsed the Clinton, a Democrat, for president.   Anderson Cooper (left) emceed the ceremony on Thursday as it closed out Fashion Week
