#ScandalisBack, indeed it is. If you know anything about ABC’s Scandal, you probably know everything about it. There’s just something undeniable about the effortless way Shonda Rhimes keeps us all on the edge of our seats, and keeps us there for however long she’d like. Thankfully after a long break between seasons, she’s appeased us with a visual of what is to come for the first episode of season 3; and what a visual it was.
The thing about Scandal that is often overlooked but is always felt is the fashion, a product of costume designer Lyn Paolo’s diligent work. In the teaser Olivia, played by Kerry Washington, appears in a stunning white caped dust coat from the Burberry Spring 2013 collection. Needless to say it was the incarnation of Olivia: strong and secure as any trench coat, but with a definite femininity as brought out by the cape.
And of course, would it be Ms. Pope were it not in white? The corseted jacket is certainly a stunner, a product of Christopher Bailey’s play with proportions for the season.
And of course what is Olivia without her juxtaposing Mellie, who appears in a purple Akris suit, Chanel vintage jewelry and Armani shoes?
This season, which starts Thursday, is going to be a good one.
