How Is He? (by ILuvOlitz)
that in some cultures it was believed that a wedding ring should go on the index finger because they believed that the index finger was the only finger that had a tendon connected to the heart. Therefore, placement of the wedding ring on the this finger would be a direct link from the groom to the bride’s heart.
It would explain so much…….
The more you know! Great post, T!

Vanity Fair names Olivia Pope one of their top 10 Best Dressed TV Characters. Congrats to Kerry Washington & Lyn Paolo!
ScandalOlivia Pope’s elegant Escada pantsuits, Burberry trenches, and structured Armani blazers are so coveted by the Internet that they’ve earned their own fan base and multiple Pinterest pages, espousing the Kerry Washington character’s feminine take on capitol style.
Kerry Washington caught up with Us Weekly to talk about her most crush-worthy style moments as Olivia Pope on Scandal. Hats off to Scandal’s amazing costume designer Lyn Paolo for Olivia’s signature style!
As fixer Olivia Pope on ABC’s Scandal, Kerry Washington often finds herself smitten with President Fitzgerald Grant, but it’s her impeccably chic wardrobe that viewers at home are lusting over. Working and playing on Capitol Hill in pieces from Gucci, Prada, Escada and Dior, Washington proves that Olivia Pope is a political — and style — gladiator … a total force to be reckoned with.
“Olivia Pope’s fashion is much better than Kerry Washington’s fashion, because she’s cooler than I am — by far,” Washington — the star Us Weekly readers voted as their Celebrity Style Crush for the week of March 11 — admitted in a Closet Confessions interview with Bluefly last fall.
Working with Scandal costume designer Lyn Paolo, Washington dresses her crisis management guru character in a variety of looks that have Us swooning, too.
Here, Us Weekly details three reasons why Washington’s seen-on-TV wardrobe is so crush-worthy:Kerry Washington on “Scandal”

1. In a sea of navy and black styles in Washington, D.C., Olivia Pope always finds a way to stand out. The ultimate “gladiator in a suit,” Washington’s character always puts her best foot forward in business attire, but knows when to have fun with fashion, too. Case in point: This blush-colored Armani coat she wore during season 1’s “The Trail,” which she accessorized with Gucci suede platform pumps and a Goyard tote.Kerry Washington on “Scandal”

2. Whether she’s handling a Capitol Hill crisis or juggling alone time with one of the many men in her life, Washington’s Olivia stays on trend. Rocking this Escada black and white Gorinn gown at the Caldwell fundraiser during the episode “Boom Goes the Dynamite,” the actress used her trendy sex appeal to woo Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) — and newcomer Jake Ballard (Scott Foley).Kerry Washington on “Scandal”

3. She’s not afraid to recycle her favorite standout pieces. “I want people to feel like Olivia has a closet — that it’s not just some endless supply of clothes that we have in a room somewhere,” explains Washington, seen here wearing a white blouse, slacks and long layered necklace opposite Huck (Guillermo Diaz) in the series premiere. “Like any other woman, she has to mix and match pieces.” Among the items in heavy rotation on the Scandal set: three Movado watches — in gold, rose gold and silver — and a select handful, er, armful of Prada purses.

Part of Olivia’s ring mystery has been solved during last night’s #AskScandal…. Whether the index finger ring was Kerry’s or Olivia’s?
