Kerry Washington brought out her inner mannequin (and her inner First Lady) when she attended a party for the third season of Scandal at Saks Fifth Avenue in NYC last night in a dress that would be perfect for a Washington DC State dinner. The fete wasn't just to celebrate the new season, as Saks also unveiled their new Scandal-themed windows, which Kerry and her costar Scott Foley took time to pose with, much to the delight of passersby. Kerry had a busy day in the Big Apple yesterday, as she also attended a talk at the Paley Center for Media, where she talked about how the current situation with the government shutdown would have been "handled" in Olivia Pope's world.
Creator Shonda Rhimes also joined Kerry and Scott at the event, as did Guillermo Diaz, Darby Stanchfield, Katie Lowes, and Joshua Malina. The show's new episodes will kick off tonight at 10 p.m. on ABC, but you can get a head start on the excitement by checking out these sneak peek photos of Scandal season three.
