If you follow me on Twitter, especially on a Thursday night, you may know of how crazy I am about the show Scandal. Starring Kerry Washington, the show follows Olivia Pope, a political fixer who saves the PR lives of the most prominent people in Washington. As a writer, I love the twisted and jaw dropping story lines that are seriously missing from a lot of TV shows lately. As a fashion blogger, the style of the main character just makes my heart sing! It’s very rare I find a TV show that emulates the clothes that I would wear every single day – classic style with a wow factor that can make the wearer stand out with just the use of neutral colors. Olivia gives new meaning to the power suit while keeping it feminine (and un-scandalous!). The dresses she wore to White House events are stunning and even the cardigans she wears while lounging around her super fabulous apartment make me swoon. If there’s anybody’s closet I want to raid, it would be hers all day!
While I gear up for the premiere tonight (by getting the baby to bed and turning off my phone) I wanted to highlight some of the best outfits from the past two seasons.
I came across this video from Bluefly that I just had to share. Kerry Washington talks about her favorite item from Olivia’s closet and how the show redefines the women’s power suit.
Are you going to be watching Scandal tonight at 10pm on ABC?
