Scandal: Olivia’s Dress From ‘Happy Birthday, Mr. President’

What’s black, white, and red all over? Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) as she smooched the President (Tony Goldwyn) in a flashback during last’s nights epic episode of Scandal (season 2 episode 8, titled, “Happy Birthday, Mr. President“).

During Fitz’s first few days in the presidency, we learned that Olivia and the POTUS like to get. it. on. behind closed doors. And we learned that Washington D.C.’s femme fatale used to —gasp! — wear dresses during her day day job. One in particular, a white sheath dress with black trim by Michael Kors (which, might I add, looks incredibly similar to a more pricey Valentino one) triggered the aforementioned heavy petting in the oval office.

According to the actress herself (via Twitter) it was “intentional choice” by the wardrobe department for Olivia to wear skirts and dresses until she resigned. After that, as we know, she’s consistently dressed in chic pant suits, which symbolize “power.”

I also wanted to include info on Liv’s stunning (seriously STUNNING) evening gown look, which she ID’ed herself (again on Twitter!).
