Kerry Washington has co-designed a clothing collection inspired by her hit Tv drama Scandal.

The Django Unchained star has teamed up with the show's costume designer Lyn Paolo to develop pieces inspired by lead character Olivia Pope's signature wardrobe.

The actress says, "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. 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."

The collection will be available in The Limited retail stores and online shop from 22 September (14).
