Scandal fans, how are you holding up? It’s been what feels like forever since the winter finale, and we still have a little under three weeks left until Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) returns to our small screens on February 27th. But until then, here’s a sneak peek at the premiere featuring First Lady Mellie Grant (Bellamy Young) that will temporarily satisfy your hunger for all things Scandal—blackmail, infidelity, and corruption included—along with a break-down of some of Pope’s finest fashion moments, thanks to costume designer genius Lyn Paolo.

As for our favorite moments? We couldn’t get enough of Pope’s lust-worthy houndstooth Dior coat from her visit to Fitz’s Vermont getaway, her periwinkle blue Armani suit during an intense hostage moment, and the stunning black-and-white structured Rubin Singer gown from the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. And we’re expecting to see a lot more fashion-defining moments when Scandal returns on ABC from its hiatus.
