Check Out Kerry Washington's 'Scandal' Inspired Clothing Line
By Denny Directo
For all you Gladiators who rave and fawn over Olivia Pope's fierce looks week after week on Scandal, well now you too can rock the D.C. fixer's best outfits!
Star Kerry Washington has partnered with the show's costume designer Lyn Paolo and The Limited's main designer Elliot Staples for a special clothing line inspired by Pope, which means the 42-piece collection is 100% power and class.
"There is a little bit of white in this collection," Washington says of designs. "A lot of that Olivia Pope palette of neutral colors, creams and grays, and taupe and white and then maybe some bold black and white because that's a little bit of an Olivia Pope staple as well."
From Olivia's plaid power cape and shawl-collared trench coats, to her classy white halter dress, Washington and Paolo have created one of the most stylish characters on primetime TV.
"Olivia Pope is a style icon," The Limited designer Elliot Staples explains. He adds, "Today's power generation of women they also expect quality."
"We have a show because of our fans, they have allowed us to have a television show so this is like our gift back to them," Washington adds.
Kerry and the rest of the team behind the Scandal collection have it all perfectly timed. The clothing line will be in The Limited stores and online September 23rd, two days before the season premiere.
