Kerry Washington and The Limited Are Launching a ‘Scandal’ Clothing Line
Kerry, 37, partnered with the show’s costume designer Lyn Paolo for the wardrobe, which is reminiscent of Olivia Pope’s sophisticated Scandal style, including wide-leg trousers and tailored blouses.

New mom Washington told Women’s Wear Daily, “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.”
While the items Kerry typically wears on the show are by high-end designers like Prada and Dolce & Gabbana, the Django Unchained actress says, “We weren’t inspired by any designers in particular because they are all original pieces that are authentic to the character and the world of the show. Personally, I have tons of favorite designers. I don’t gravitate toward any one designer because I think of fashion as the costume of the everyday woman. The Armani house was one of the first ones to dress me. Jason Wu is a dear friend of mine, as is Tory Burch. I am a big fan of Alexander Wang.”
The retail price for the items starts at $49 and will be available in stores and online in late September.
