Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) is no wallflower, and on tonight’s all-new episode of Scandal she’ll command attention through her bold new wardrobe choices as well as her actions. Wearing a graphic Escada blouse that is a strong departure from her usually subdued, solid color palate, Pope will face some serious consequences for her mistakes, both personally and professionally. “As Olivia’s life becomes more and more complicated, we are adding elements that are less in the neutral world and fabrics that have texture and print,” Scandal costume designer Lyn Paolo revealed exclusively to InStyle.com. “This is evidenced in choosing this blouse, which is perhaps the boldest pattern we have ever used on her.” We’re loving the sophisticated black and white print, paired with simple gold accessories and sleek, straight hair, even if it does signify trouble at Pope and Associates! Tune in to Scandal tonight at 10/9c on ABC to see what happens as things continue to heat up with Olivia and Jake (Scott Foley).
