KERRY WASHINGTON, LYN PAOLO TO DEBUT "SCANDAL" COLLECTION INSPIRED BY THE HIT ABC SERIES AT THE LIMITED

Look for Fashion Created by Style Icon, Actress Kerry Washington, and Emmy(R) Award Winning Designer Lyn Paolo Starting this Fall

Emmy and Golden Globe nominated actress Kerry Washington and costume designer Lyn Paolo, in partnership with Elliot Staples, head of design from The Limited, have developed a new fashion line exclusively for The Limited inspired by Shonda Rhimes' top-rated ABC drama, Scandal, which airs Thursdays at 9pm EST and premieres its fourth season this fall.

"By creating a line inspired by the show, we are introducing a collection that embodies the elegance and power of the Scandal aesthetic for real-life gladiators and everyday fashionistas," said Washington. "The collection is a nod to our devoted fans, to fans of fashion and to women everywhere who are inspired to boldly pursue their passions and look good while doing it."

Breaking new ground in Hollywood-inspired fashion, this is the first-ever design collaboration between a national retailer, a top-rated network TV show, its costume designer and leading lady. It is also the first design collaboration for Washington and Paolo, the duo credited for creating powerful looks for Scandal's protagonist, Olivia Pope, and for inspiring millions of fans to call themselves "Gladiators in Suits."

"The whole team took great care in creating a collection that reflects Olivia Pope's unique style. We believe the collection tells a story of confidence and professional sophistication as well as maintaining a strong feminine point of view. It has been a joy, as always, to collaborate with Kerry and now also with The Limited team who have been amazing," said Paolo. "I am so excited and hopeful that our Gladiators are as excited about the collection as we are--it has been such tremendous fun and such an honor to design for the amazing characters that Shonda Rhimes has created and now to help make their style accessible to all."

A leader in specialty apparel retail, The Limited has long been the destination for runway-inspired fashion tailored for the needs of modern and sophisticated women. The Scandal collection is the retailer's first Hollywood collaboration.

"Our collection evokes the striking and aspirational style that has become synonymous with the Scandal brand and its heroine Olivia Pope. Bringing a quintessential neutral palette together with soft feminine color, the collection is outfit driven while remaining easy to mix and match - creating effortlessly modern and powerful looks," said Staples. "Olivia Pope's signature wardrobe is well represented by tailored wide leg trousers, separate jackets with strong lines & signature trims, chic feminine blouses, and heroic outerwear pieces. Our plaid round collar cape seamlessly translates television to reality and captures the true essence of the consistent sophistication and style that Olivia Pope represents for confident women everywhere."

Washington, Paolo and Staples collaboratively developed each piece in the collection, which is characterized by its authenticity, originality and unique details and trim. Tops, pants, jackets and outerwear are included in the fall collection, with prices beginning at $49. The Limited Scandal Collection arrives September 22 in The Limited stores nationwide and online.
