Every time an episode of “Scandal” airs, I want to trash everything in my closet and completely reinvent my wardrobe using Olivia Pope as my style inspiration. Equal parts professional badass and classy seductress, Kerry Washington’s character (much like the actress in real life) is always dressed to the nines.
