Hollywood, The Limited, and Leading Ladies

Having finished its fourth season, ABC’s hit TV series Scandal has amassed a cult following of armchair fashionista “gladiators” who tune in to check out chic, Washington D.C. power player  Olivia Pope (played by actress Kerry Washington) in her stylist signature suits.   Since September,  Scandal fans who shopped at The Limited mall chain have been able to buy Olivia Pope’s look  at the retailer’s fashion collection inspired by Olivia Pope.   The Limited’s designer Elliot Staples collaborated with Lyn Paolo, Scandal’s costume designer and actress  Kerry Washington  to develop an affordable collection of  suit separates starting at $49.  The collection not only mark’s Limited’s first Hollywood collaboration but Limited claims that this is the first time that a national retailer, a network TV show, its costume designer, and leading lady have all joined forces.
