Ever since we got our first taste off skandale tilbage i 2012 har vi været fascineret af showets endelige drama. Men as much as the political kupper and love triangle have pulled us in, the wardrobe has a big role to play in the pub. From ikoniske udsagnscoats til de smukke ballgowns har ABCs Shonda Rhimes-producerede hitleveret endless modeinspiration til Gladiators overalt i løbet af sine syv årstider. Og seriens finale den 19. april will not be any exception.
Med stil have an exclusive snigitte on two seasons from the finals, and let’s just say they do not disappoint. Til at begynde med serverer Kerry Washington en af hendes sidste hårde fraktemomenter som Olivia Pope, iført en lang hvid Burberrygrave, der var særligt meningsfyldt, ifølge showen kostume designer, Lyn Paolo. “Shonda wrote the manuscript for the whole of the last episode – which was amazing – and she wrote,” Olivia in a classic, white, Olivia trench “, says Paolo.” I was sure she should be in a Burberry grave because Burberry has have been a big help for the show and I would like to thank them. We also wanted it to be a tribute to the original Tory Burchgrave, she carried the pilot, and this particular coat has the same feeling. “
Selvfølgelig ville ingen Olivia Pope-ensemble være komplet uden strømtilbehør. Paolo parrede Burberrygraven med en sort Prada tote- “vi bærer altid Prada,” siger hun og hvide Tom Ford pumper. Mens hun holdt Olivias look simple, havde Paolo det sjovt at kaste nogle ekstra stykker i blandingen til andre karakterers finale udseende. “We did not know that we were to shoot in D.C. until we really had established the last two episodes, and we had never filmed that before,” says Paolo. “Because it was bitterly cold, when we arrived there, we ended up adding scarves to everyone’s appearance. It’s fun when you see the scene because every single person is wearing a scarf apart from poor Kerry.”
Mens Washington bærer Olivia Pope’s signatur hvide scenen, som foregår af Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool, “vi virkelig ønsket at spille på farverne som altid”, siger Paolo. “Det handlede om kontrast mellem tegnene, så Quinn (Katie Lowes) er i burgunder, Huck (Guillermo Diaz) er jeg sort, og Abby (Darby Stanchfield, afbildet nedenfor) Er jeg en marineblå Stella McCartney frakke – Darby ended up buying because she needed it. We really wanted to make sure that at the final episode lay down where everyone had ended and while each sign carries something that pays a little tribute to where they started, it also represents this end and they are united teams. “

Hvordan har Olivia Pope stil udviklet sig fra pilot episoder gennem serien finalen?
Her evolution was always expressed through color. Da hun var den “hvide ridder”, var hun i hvid. When she went to the dark side, we made the darker colors. And then she was bright colors when she tried to withdraw from Fitz and his world. That, I think, everyone missed, when she was in The White House with Fitz, she dressed as Mellie (Bellamy Young) in the beginning. So there was this idea of losing itself to become this pseudo First Lady. Other characters evolved more dramatically with style, but Olivia’s style evolution was always about her costumes.
Hvad var hendes mest “gladiator” udseende hele tiden?
It was in the beginning of the third season when she carried a white Burberry grave that had a gown. She called a meeting with Fitz and Mellie in the bunker under the Hvide Hus, and I love the picture we created. The whole set was gray, but they had the colors of the flag with Fitz in a blue suit and Mellie wearing red. Olivia was literally speaking leader – she was responsible, and I think that Burberrygraven indicated that.
When I speak about coats, I do not know if a show has ever had so many. Har Olivia Pave nogensinde iført den samme frakke to gange?
Early in the season, Kerry et Ferragamo coat had, which everyone thought was white, but it was actually baby pink! We were both really fond of the frakke [afbildet nedenfor], and we used it quite a bit. We thought it was cool, at that was not technically white. That frakke was still in her room at the end of the show – I think it really started our passion for overwear. Vi filmade i Los Angeles, så vi brugte altid grønne skærme. Fordi showet fandt sted i andre dele af landet, der havde forskellige vejrstrækninger, blev yderbeklædning virkelig en del af historien. If it’s raining outside, everyone was in a ditch, and that kind of sold the East Coast’s feelings of it all.
Til af Olivia Pope foretrukne ting bærer hvidt og drikker rødvin. Har Kerry nogensinde spildt vin på hendes kostume under filmen?
Bogstaveligt talt aldrig. I think Kerry is like a freak of nature, and she will not mind me saying this. Mænd hun blev aldrig beskidt, jeg mener never. Even though I was a little nervous because I did not know Kerry, and we decided to go with a white Tory Burch coat!

Var der altid nogen garderobe fejl på sæt?
The most expensive costume on show was when we had a scene with Jeff Perry and Tony Goldwyn in season fire, I think. It was a very intense scene, where they argued, but it was not meant to be a stunt or something. Jeff is such a great actor, and he was so the moment he started taking Tony by his shoulders. They made the scene again and again, and suddenly called my amazing, Francesca set me up and said, “Oh my dear, Lyn, you’re going to get to the kit.” I ran to the set and the entire back of Tony’s Giorgio Armani suit had just come out. We had to sit there on the set and sew away and tried to put Tony’s jacket together again because we did not have multiple multiples. We still mention in our set sometimes that at the moment Jeff was able to destroy an Armani suit. Det er meget sjovt.
Looking back at all seasons, what was the most difficult outfit to put together?
Det var altid og vil altid være “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” episode da Kerry var i Jean Fares Couture hvid aftenkjole [afbildet ovenfor]. Silkchiffonen fell literally in pieces, and we had to reconstruct it. We also had to tone the fact that we spent a lot of money on something that we had to restore. Den havde den fulde støtte fra Shonda og [executive producer] Betsy Beers, men i mit eget hjerte og hoved var jeg meget nervøs. I would have had something that would blow in the wind as she ran to him after he was shot. I thought about doing it myself, but we run out of time, and I loved the construction of that dress. Heldigvis betalte det sig, and when Kerry came to the seat that day she said, “Oh my God, Lyn, it’s beautiful.” I just wanted to be amazing and it was one of the most challenging moments to make that choice early in the show. As the years went by, our access to mode grew – and I give Kerry the honor for it. As a result, we could get things that I would have dreamed about 10 years ago.
Hvilken Olivia Pope-outfit tror du var Kerrys all-time favorit?
Det er så svært! We just walked through her room and she tried to find out what she would like like a memorial. Hun var som: “Jeg vil bare have det hele!” One part of it was for emotional reasons. Kerry talte stadig om det faktum, at jeg ødelagde alle disse Armani pants, da hun var gravid. I put in elastic waistband, cut the front and built in panels. Hun var rystet at I ruined these beautiful pants, but rather sweet and loving, she wanted a couple of them to take her as a memory. It does not look very glamorous, but in her heart there was something special for her. Christian Dior-jakkerne was also storing favorites for her – especially the black and white houndstooth, as she was wearing the house in Vermont when she was to get out of the helicopter and see Fitz [afbildet ovenfor]. She loved it, and I know it was one of the pieces she bought at the end of the show.

What she kept from the set?
She also really wanted to buy many of our dresses, especially the very first dress she had on the show of Calvin Klein. Mænd fordi vi lånte tøj fra samlinger, we had them no longer. We were both kidding because she could not get all these pieces to her personal mini-archive and to deliver to her children one day. Men i know she bought a bunch of aftenpungene and held a Prada bag and I’m sure they’re being distributed to her friends and family..
Var hun nogen af frakkerne?
Yes, she bought some of the streams at the end of the show, including the black and white Dior kappe, as she wore when she was pregnant [afbildet nedenfor]. It really helped hide things we had to conceal at the time, but it was still amazing. Dior jakkerne for the past four or five seasons has been amazing and it was one of her favorites. Jeg ved det i sin personlige samling nu.

Hvad var Olivia Pope mest slidte sko i hele serien?
It changed as the seasons went on. Jeg gjorde først til sæsonen, vi gjorde en masse Miu Miu og mere af en platform for at give Kerry en ekstra smule højde. Så, som tiden gik, we went to Jimmy Choo land and it was amazing. Vi havde en masse Jimmy Choo i hendes værelse.
Vi gjorde en masse Christian Dior sko, da hun var i White House med Fitz, og hun er ked af at jeg Oscar [de la Renta] og mere feminine outfits. Jeg slutter, hvad folk har ikke rigtig syntes at bemærke, at Olivia har brugt jeans i stedet for slacks og hun har mange boots. Vi havde nogle fantastiske Burberry støvler, og hvis der er nogen designer der laver en rockin boot nu, vi sandsynligvis havde det i værelset. It’s her shoe history towards the end when she gets harder.
I 2014 designede du og Kerry skandale indsamling til The Limited. Var der stadig noget i garderobeskabet fra den linje?
Ja! Faktisk tog Kerry nogle stykker fra The Limited-linjen. Vi havde stadig den sort og hvide cape frakke. We kept everything from all seasons, and it’s fun because Elliot Staples, who was our amazing collaborator at The Limited, wrote to me a few weeks ago saying: “I saw one of our blouses on Scandal tonight” and I was like “Yes, we still use it – we love it!” It was a good line, and we were really proud of it. Kerry and I had a bunch of it, and it was nice to do something for the gladiators.
If you had to look back and think of a favorite memory from being on Kerry, what would it be?
Jeg elsker absolut hende. I have been very blessed to work with amazing people, and Kerry is at the top of the list. She is a big leader, I just wish she would run to the office. She is honest, down to earth, and she and I have the same brain. Vi ville afslutte hinandens sætninger hele vejen igennem. Vi havde straks denne forbindelse og er blevet så tætte. At the end of the last episode she hugged me as close and said, “I could not have done it without you.” Det var et fantastisk øjeblik.
