Olivia Pope’s life may be unravelling, but you’d never know it by looking at her threads.
In a sneak peek clip from the season three premiere of Scandal, D.C.’s most fashionable fixer wears a muted outfit that is the perfect contrast to the intensity of the situation she finds herself in.
We got the head-to-toe rundown on Olivia’s look — we warn you, it’s not cheap being Olivia Pope — from Scandal costume designer Lyn Paolo, who will help launch a special fashion partnership between the ABC series and retail giant Saks Fifth Avenue next week. Read on for all the details.
The coat: Burberry
The price tag: $2,595
Where to find it: This white cotton double duchess satin caped trench coat is from the label’s Spring 2013 collection — Paolo often buys from the current collections while Scandal is filming, which means we sometimes see Olivia in pieces that are from the previous fashion season – and is no longer available. Fear not, there’s a similar style in Burberry’s current collection.
The pants: Armani
The price tag: Unknown
Where to find it: Paolo isn’t certain of the style name, but they’re a staple in Olivia’s closet. You can score a similar pair (on sale!) at yoox.com.
The bag: Prada
The price tag: $2,200
Where to find it: Prada is Olivia’s go-to brand for handbags, and in this scene she’s carrying the Italian label’s twin pocket tote. (Fun fact: Paolo owns the same bag in real life.)
The watch: Movado
The price tag: Top secret
Where to find it: Olivia’s rose gold watch is a one-of-a-kind — Kerry Washington is a brand ambassador for the Swiss company – but you can buy a similar style at movado.com (for $650). The character will continue to wear Movado watches throughout season three.
