Olivia Pope's new Scandal red leather trenchcoat “should come with a spoiler alert”

"This coat, with its strong lines and bold hue, serves as a vivid statement of new intent,” says Pulitzer Prize-winning fashion critic Robin Givhan. "Featured prominently in the teasers for the upcoming season, which begins Thursday, the coat is plot point and character sketch. It should come with a spoiler alert.” She adds: "The coat is an about-face in aesthetic for (Kerry) Washington’s character, who has spent the previous five seasons dressed in a palette dominated by black and white.” PLUS: Scandal’s costume designer explains Olivia’s new look.
