Entertainment Weekly - All Time Greatest TV Style: Scandal’s Olivia Pope.
Sure, actress Kerry Washington could make a potato sack look good, but it’s Lyn Paolo’s immaculate eye that keeps things interesting week after week. As crisis management expert Olivia Pope, Washington is often found wearing Armani power suits, (exclusively) Movado watches, and chic long necklaces. ”It’s a classic business look,” Paolo told CNN — though she typically opts for pinks and pastels over a more traditionally darker palette. ”When you talk about Washington, D.C., you think of dark gray and navy blue. Look at a picture of Congress. Everyone pretty much looks the same…. My idea was, we should always have Olivia Pope stand out in some way.”
