Scandal Fashion Set Twitter on Fire Last Night

So much happened on Scandal last night, we’re already planning to watch it again over the weekend just to wrap our heads around the twisty plot. We also want to watch it again to relive the fashion, because More Cattle, Less Bull, was the most style-packed episode of the season. (We’re patting you on the back from here, Lyn Paolo.)

First, let’s address Olivia Pope’s black-and-white Rubin Singer gown, worn to the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. It’s so perfect, Kerry Washington should consider wearing it again to the Golden Globes. Yes, with the same black elbow-length gloves. Yes, with her baby bump.

“Lyn came into my studio just to meet me and say how excited she was about the gown and how Kerry was super excited about it because they’d been looking for it for awhile,” the New York-based designer told The New York Post. “Lyn had seen the dress at Neiman’s, and she fell in love with it. It was really wonderful how it came about — it was very organic.”

And of course it fit Washington like a glove: “She’s a perfect size 2.” (We knew she was sample size.)

The gown is available for purchase at Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue stores. But you better hurry if you want to get your hands on it. And be ready to spend $3,875.

Of course, Liv’s wardrobe isn’t the only one we’re lusting after. Darby Stanchfield’s character Abby having a major fashion moment, and we’re just as obsessed with her closet as we are with her relationship with David Rosen; Abby hit a high note last night in an insane silk Ralph Lauren gown.

And Twitter had a strong reaction to everything: Here are some of the best style Tweets from last night. Don’t forget to tell us your favorite fashion moments in the comments below!

Oh, look- yet another piece about Kerry Washington on People! It’s a daily thing now, like she’s the biggest star on the planet. The media is trying to turn her into one, for some reason. Political paybacks, maybe? A little thank you from her friends in the White House? She’s one actress on one show but you cover her more than anyone other female star put together. Something’s fishy, because no one’s publicist is that good.

Proud American Woman–Really? Really?!

Sooo why exactly Kerry Washington doesn’t have her Celebrity Central Page yet, dear people at People Magazine?

ProudAmericanWoman–what are you talking about? Kerry is one of the biggest stars out there, her body of work is for the most part solid, her show is one of the most successful shows out right now and up for numerous Emmys and she’s scandal not to mention her fashion is on point on and off the show. Your conspiracy theories are laughable.

I see there are no comments when Angelina Jolie is plastered all over people for doing absolutely nothing but walking with her kids. Kerry Washington is the top actress in the hotest show on T.V. right now. Why shouldn’t she be talked about..Really?

I understand kerry is hot stuff right now, really I do but the amount of coverage she gets is starting to border on overkill. Its pretty obvious that People and her personal PR people/those at abx have an excellent working relationship. It makes me weary though, because in hollywood they build folks up to tear em down.

“only one were lusting after” Really? I thought this was People, not US Weekly. Jeepers.

She WORKED that dress in last night episode! Loved it!


She looks phenomenal in the black and white gown! The black gloves were so Grace Kelly elegant. Now this is the photo PEOPLE should use not the bobblehead photo in the other articles. @proundamericanwoman & Melissa try skipping the article next time if you are suffering from Kerry overload.

@Erica2 Thank you for the suggestion. I can read whatever i want. I watched scandal for 2 seasons straight till my interest waned. Still a kerry fan, I just dont think the hype is going to go on forever that’s all, so it best for her people to pace everything properly. Too much all at once can be detrimental too. But hey, guess its my fault for knowing how the biz works
