Last night while the whole country was dressing in costume, Scandal’s Olivia Pope was dressing to the nines. I could have worn this Rubin Singer gown for the TWO x TWO for AIDS and Art “Black and White” gala last weekend (fashion aside, the cliffhanger of Olivia’s mother’s death is killing me!). The structure of the black and ecru 4ply dress created plenty of drama on the hit show, and for once, it was the good kind. As someone who spent her childhood in DC, I must say that Ms. Pope has the most enviable wardrobe of any Snob in the city. Yes, I realize she’s a fictional character, but on and off screen, Kerry Washington is always on her fashion game. I can’t wait to see how she starts dressing in her pregnancy! If anyone can stay chic under pressure, it’s Olivia Pope. Available in store at Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue for $3,875.
