Kerry Washington announces 'Scandal'-inspired fashion line for The Limited

By Gina DiFalco,

Much to the delight of those who envy Kerry Washington’s character Olivia Pope’s wardrobe on ABC’s Scandal, the actress and costume designer Lyn Paolo have announced a collaboration for The Limited inspired by the fashion on the show.

Washington and Paolo worked with head of design at The Limited, Elliot Staples, to create the 42-piece collection. Pieces range from $49 to $248.

Washington, who gave birth to her first child two months ago, told Women’s Wear Daily, “Being an actor who has worn fashion and being somebody who is a fixture on red carpets, I have been able to pull from every level of my experience, including working with magazines.”

She added that it’s “been really fun” working on this collection, and especially having a “voice at every stage of the production.”

According to Us Weekly, Washington said in a press release that the line is a “nod to our devoted fans, to fans of fashion and to women everywhere who are inspired to boldly pursue their passions and look good while doing it."

The collection will launch both online and in stores in September.
