Stop what you're doing and read this. If you're a fan of the ABC hit political drama, Scandal, continue to read and if you're not… just read anyway because Kerry Washington will lend a hand in designing a collection based on her character, Olivia Pope, for the The Limited.

If you've seen the series then you'll agree that Olivia Pope's style is flawless. The 37-year-old actress will collaborate with Scandal's costume designer Lyn Paolo and The Limited's head of design Elliot Staples, basing the collection on Olivia's signature wide-leg trousers and chic blouses. Kerry even posted a sketch from the collection on her Instagram account.  

Kerry told WWD:  "People who love the look of the show can now step into this world in a way that is affordable and accessible because not everybody can afford to have the clothes they see on the show."

Prices range from $49 to $242 (approximately RM157 to RM778). We can't wait to see what the collection will look like when it arrives this September.
