Gladiators everywhere are ecstatic for the long awaited season premiere of Scandal. In addition to Thursday’s premiere, we are pleased to announce that Scandal and Saks Fifth Avenue are becoming a twosome ; the fashion forward store is joining forces with the series on a multi-platform (in-store, on-screen, and online) collaboration to celebrate the show’s star and style icon Olivia Pope ( Kerry Washington). If you are a Scandal fanatic and a fashion buff ,this is an ultimate dream come true. The collaboration is set to launch at an event this coming Wednesday- at the New York Saks Fifth Avenue flagship store. The store’s infamous windows will feature installations created by both Kerry Washington and Scandal costume designer, Lyn Paolo, that include pieces from favorite designers of Olivia Pope–(think Donna Karan meets Giorgio Armani.) Olivia’s infamous line from the show, “It’s handled,” will also appear on the store’s windows. Similar installations will be recreated at Saks Fifth Avenue stores in Beverly Hills, CA and Chevy Chase, MD. If you are nowhere near any of these Saks locations, fear not, you can still follow along with the campaign on social media.

Primetime Emmy Awards- The Wins and the Defeats

The 65th annual primetime Emmy awards graced our television screens last night (if you were not too busy indulging in Sunday night football). The legendary awards were hosted by funny man and How I Met Your Mother star, Neil Patrick Harris.

The award ceremony included many wins and disappointing defeats due to the stiff competition amongst categories. Highly acclaimed actors Matt Damon and Michael Douglas were up against each for the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Movie for their co-starring roles in HBO's Behind the Candelabra – the story of the six year relationship between Liberace and his very young lover, *awkward* (Douglas won). Hollywood BFFS Amy Poehler and Tina Fey who are constantly up against each other for the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series both lost to Julia Louis-Dreyfus.
