Hair Envy: Kerry Washington's Rolled Fishtail Braid(Source: Neilson Barnard/Getty Images North America) This is a big week for any Scandal fan. Not only does the cult-favorite political drama return for its fourth season on Thursday, but today The Limited is launching a collection of clothing inspired by Olivia Pope's impeccable wardrobe. And last night at the collection's launch party, Kerry Washington (Olivia Pope herself!) proved how impeccable her own style is.

Not only did Washington dress to impress in a graphic-print Giles Deacon dress, but she wore her lengthy chocolate brown hair in a graceful fishtail braid that caused several of the StyleBistro editors to swoon uncontrollably. Now unlike many other fishtails we've spotted, Washington's had a touch of classic Hollywood with an on-trend victory roll mixed with a more modern chunky plait.

Not only was this a classic-meets-modern look, but it solidified Washington as a star of enviable style and beauty.
