Olivia is apparently a fan of Escada because she also opted for another Escada Gorinn gown in the next image below.

The Gorinn dress is from the label’s Spring/Summer 2013 Women’s Wear Collection. More about the gown from the escada.com website:

Adorable gown in fluid silk with delicate floral lace inset in the back. Glossy black bugle beads accentuate the cap sleeves and waistline. A high-impact fashion statement.

Lyn Paolo, costume designer for Scandal, who deserves all the praise for dressing Olivia Pope has this to say about the gown (via People Magazine):

“We were having a really hard time finding anything,” Scandal costume designer Lyn Paolo tells PEOPLE. “There were a lot of needs for this dress: I wanted it to be white to echo [an episode from] last year, and she had to be able to move in it, too — she had to run down a hallway in one scene, and withstand wind effects in another. So I needed something that flowed.”

Knowing she wanted to go vintage, Paolo found a gorgeous white Jean Fares Couture dress that was a few sizes too big for Washington — and in somewhat rough shape — but “fell in love with it,” she says. “There were so many challenges — the size, the destroyed hem — so we basically rebuilt the whole gown.”

The work was worth it, though; Paolo says that when Washington walked onto the Scandal set wearing the gown as her character, Olivia Pope, “the reaction of the crew and other actors was phenomenal.”
