Swag upon swag, Gladiators!!! Doesn’t it give new meaning to “Take Off Your Clothes?”
Fitz getting his tie fixed
Requested by scandalmoments!
That first one completely won me over and it’s definitely one of my favorite #Scandal moments! The chemistry between these two though? I also love that moment between Fitz and Cyrus from “Dirty Little Secrets.” This is why Cyrus is all torn up about Fitz pushing him out. Fitz’s his best friend. The last two just captures Fitz, the enigma. (Admit it you wanted to see how his closet look like!) The man knows how to rock a suit and tie.
I spent the whole night dancing, but never with the one person I actually wanted to dance with.
Lyn Paolo caught up with InStyle to talk about Olivia Pope’s black and white Escada gown that we’ll see Miss Pope wear in tonight’s Boom Goes the Dynamite.
“Originally, we saw Olivia in a sleek Calvin Klein gown, then we moved to a more romantic-feeling Jean Fares gown with a full skirt and a lot of beading,” Paolo told InStyle.com. “Now, because Olivia’s life and loves are once again in turmoil, we have transitioned to a gown that is both black and white, feminine and romantic, with a lace paneled back but from the front a geometric strong shape and silhouette.” (InStyle)
Eager to see how Olivia Pope makes her entrance wearing this dress tonight! Under the cut is Olivia Pope’s previous Big Ball gowns…
Olivia Pope Special Occasion Style in Scandal Season 2. (Love all four looks!)
- Whiskey Tango Foxtrot - MaxMara (Baby Ella’s Christening)
- Defiance - Jean Fares Couture (Fitz’s 50th Birthday Gala)
- Happy Birthday Mr. President - Michael Kors (Fitz’s Inauguration)
Boom Goes The Dynamite’s outfit took a nod to episode 2x08, did it not? Love the Old Hollywood starlet hairstyle Olivia’s rocking. Lyn Paolo is amazing!
Fitz’s face breaks my heart in the pre-debate scene on the left. Olivia is giving him that tough love he needs, and he knows he needs, but he’s a reopened wound with his overbearing father around. Not only that, but he can hear Olivia’s frustration in her voice, and see it in both her demeanor and written all over her face. And, as we later find out, his every feeling is controlled by the look on her face.
You know that moment in a reality check when it all finally clicks? When all of your defenses have been stripped away? When you realize what’s really going on? All of that is reflected in his face. It’s different to their first meeting when she tells him it looks like he doesn’t screw his wife. His heart wasn’t in it for keeps yet. Now it is, so every syllable is like a tiny knife prick on his heart.
Oh, and where have we seen this ‘Fitz face’ before? The Rose Garden (right).
#GladiatorOvation for writing this!
Olivia and Fitz sharing a slow dance. 2 MORE DAYS, Gladiators!
Olivia and Fitz - #TreeGate and #PinGate. Why I love these two moments: It’s putting on her shoes vs putting on a flagpin on him.
Gladiators don’t forget tomorrow night episode 2x08 - Happy Birthday, Mr. President & episode 2x09 - Blown Away airs starting at 9PM EST!
I’m down for more Mary scenes! I love how she puts Cyrus Beene in his place. She reminds me a lot of Alissa’s relationship with David Rosen.
