Certainly not film and TV news specifically, but it's related news that I'm sure a lot you would be interested in knowing, given the immense popularity of the show.

In short, fans of Olivia Pope - specifically fans of what has become Olivia Pope's iconic stylish closet - will be happy to know that a new "Scandal"-inspired fashion line is coming to The Limited.

The star of the series, Kerry Washington, reportedly collaborated on the design process with "Scandal" costume designer Lyn Paolo, and Limited head of design Elliot Staples, every step of the way.

“It’s been really fun to have a voice at every stage of the production from picking buttons, choosing fabrics and weighing in on hair and makeup people," she said in an interview published on WWD today. “Being an actor who has worn fashion and being somebody who is a fixture on red carpets, I have been able to pull from every level of my experience, including working with magazines.”

So, those of you who've wanted to dress like Olivia Pope, rejoice! The line - ranging from $49 to $242 in price - will hit stores in September. 

“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,” she added
