Olivia Pope Inspired Fashion Line

OLIVIA POPE INSPIRED FASHION LINE

Wanna dress like Olivia Pope?

What a stupid question; of course you do.

Well, according to ‘Scandal’ costume designer Lyn Paolo, the average American woman may soon get the chance to do just that.

In a recent interview with Fashionista.com, Paolo said the idea of an Olivia Pope inspired fashion line has been talked about for some time now, and that ideas are presently being mulled over.

“We’ve been talking about how we could create something aspirational for the audience- something Olivia Pope might wear, but not so aspirational that it is out of reach for most of our gladiators,” says Paolo. “Right now we’re throwing around ideas and trying to figure out how to do it so that it’s not out of the price range that most people can afford, and yet somehow still create something for people to have a piece of the Olivia Pope look.”

Since its mid-season debut in 2012 ‘Scandal’ has become a bonafide hit for ABC and singlehandedly launched actress Kerry Washington’s career into the stratosphere.

The show earned its first Emmy nods earlier this week- one for Kerry as Lead Actress, the other for Dan Bucatinsky as Guest Actor.

‘Scandal’ Heading to BET in the Fall

SCANDAL TO AIR ON BET THIS FALL

Kerry Washington’s hit ABC drama ‘Scandal’ is heading to BET this fall. According to published reports, season one and two of the political drama will begin airing in late summer, while current episodes of season three will air a week after they are broadcast on ABC.

BET will begin airing the first two seasons with a marathon starting in August and will continue to air episodes up until the season three premiere in September.

The magic number for shows to be sold into syndication used to be 5 years, 100 episodes, but in recent years shows with exceptional hit value have had their syndication rights snapped up as early as their first season (Glee, Modern Family).

Congrats to Kerry and company.

Ain’t no money like syndication money. LOL
