The 1 Bright Color That's Secretly a Neutral, According to the Woman Who Dresses Olivia Pope
She never had an issue with handling major cases, cleaning up crime scenes, or attracting tons of drama, but Scandal's Olivia Pope played it safe when it came to fashion. Her neutral palette ensured she'd look prim and polished wherever she went, and while we lusted after those Prada bags and large white coats, part of us wished she'd soon switch things up.
And then, for season five, she did. Or rather, costume designer Lyn Paolo did (since Olivia Pope isn't actually a real person). The fiercest character on TV began rocking colors — vibrant colors — all while managing to look as chic as ever. "What's her secret?" we wondered, and we later asked Lyn herself.
