If you are one of the many women who swooned over Olivia Pope's wardrobe choices on the hit show Scandal, you will now have a chance to own that style! Actress Kerry Washington can officially add designer to her resume, as she revealed to the world her plans to collaborate with The Limited on a women's clothing collection that is inspired by her popular Scandal character. The actress posted a few sketches on twitter on Wednesday with a caption that read "Our secret is out!". Washington will also be pairing up with Scandal costume designer, Lyn Paulo.
Lyn Paulo released a statement saying “The whole team took great care in creating a collection that reflects Olivia Pope’s unique style. We believe the collection tells a story of confidence and professional sophistication as well as maintaining a strong feminine point of view. I am so excited and hopeful that our Gladiators are as excited about the collection as we are – it has been such tremendous fun and such an honor to design for the amazing characters that Shonda Rhimes has created and now to help make their style accessible to all."
Kerry Washington spoke in a press release:
“By creating a line inspired by the show, we are introducing a collection that embodies the elegance and power of the Scandal aesthetic for real-life gladiators and everyday fashionistas.

This line will be available online and in stores starting September 22nd, and will feature blouses, dresses, outerwear, and pants that start at prices as low as $49.
