We won’t lie–we’ve often dreamed of being Olivia Pope, Washington D.C.’s most sought after “fixer,” famous for wearing impeccably tailored pantsuits and drinking wine from fishbowl-sized glasses on the hit show Scandal.
Thanks to the new Scandal collection from The Limited, we can now channel our inner Olivia Pope with a 42-piece collection inspired by her on-air looks! Kerry Washington, who plays Pope on the show, teamed up with Lyn Paolo, the show’s costume designer, and Elliot Staples, The Limited’s head of design. According to Women’s Wear Daily, Washington said, “People who love the look of the show can now step into this world in a way that is affordable and accessible because not everybody can afford to have the clothes they see on the show.”
Staples revealed the collection would bring "a quintessential neutral palette together with soft feminine color” to create “effortlessly modern and powerful looks.” He describes Pope's signature look as "represented by tailored wide leg trousers, separate jackets with strong lines and signature trims, chic feminine blouses, and heroic outerwear pieces." In an effort to stay as true to the character as possible, Paolo said, “The whole team took great care in creating a collection that reflects Olivia Pope’s unique style.”
Washington said the collection "is a nod to our devoted fans, to fans of fashion and to women everywhere who are inspired to boldly pursue their passions and look good while doing it." Sounds like the ultimate Glam girl.
The looks inspired by Olivia Pope’s signature wardrobe will be available late September in The Limited stores nationwide and online. Get ready to shop, you gladiators.
