On last night’s Scandal, Olivia Pope stuck to her signature wardrobe color palette: black & white! She rocked multiple outfits in her favorite hues, from the Pope & Associates office to the President’s secret Vermont getaway. Lucky for us, we got the scoop from Scandal’s costume designer, Lyn Paolo, on all of Olivia’s wardrobe details, including the striking houndstooth Dior coat she wears while en route to see Fitz. “We wanted this moment to be super dramatic and feminine, like an Audrey Hepburn moment,” Paolo explained of Olivia’s look (pictured here). Even her costars were tweeting about it! Darby Stanchfield (@darbysofficial) tweeted: “I am salivating over Olivia's @Dior coat.” Click through the gallery for more black and white looks from last night's episode and tune in to Scandal when it returns December 5th at 10/9c.
