Stealing Style – Oh the Scandal!

Stealing Style – Oh the Scandal!

Scandal is a TV series hailing from the USA that revolves around tense political drama. Loosely based on former Bush Administration Press Aide Judy Smith, it centres on the character Olivia Pope (played by Kerry Washington) and her crisis management firm. A plot this slick needs a wardrobe to match, and Scandal certainly delivers. Whether she’s in crisp shirts, beautiful tailored wool coats or impeccable suits Kerry Washington makes a statement. Since her performance in Django Unchained, Washington’s star has been very much on the ascent. Given the popularity of her most recent incarnation, Pope, we may continue to expect great things from Washington. And great style on and off the screen.
