Scandal Actress Kerry Washington to Launch Retail Line

Teaming up with “Scandal” costume designer Lyn Paolo and retail clothing brand The Limited, Kerry Washington is set to launch a “Scandal” fashion line that will now allow fans to get one step closer into the life, or shall we say wardrobe, of Ms. Pope herself.
“By creating a line inspired by the show, we are introducing a collection that embodies the elegance and power of the Scandal aesthetic for real-life gladiators and everyday fashionistas,” Us Weekly reports Washington saying in a press release. “The collection is a nod to our devoted fans, to fans of fashion and to women everywhere who are inspired to boldly pursue their passions and look good while doing it.”

The 42-piece collection, which is set to launch in late September, will offer Scandal-inspired looks ranging from $49 to $248, and will be available in The Limited stores nation-wide and on their website.
The concept of bring Olivia Pope’s fashion sense to an affordable clothing line is a beyond brilliant business idea for Washington, who reportedly earns $80,000 per Scandal episode, making her one of television’s highest paid actresses.

Clearly, the Bronx native knows more than a thing or two about brand expansion.
