We Need to Talk About Olivia Pope's White Burberry Trench Coat

By now you’ve already read the recap. But we still need to discuss the new cast member introduced on Thursday night’s Season 3 premiere of Scandal: Olivia Pope’s Burberry trench coat.

Basically, the Internet exploded (more on that below) when Liv (the always-gorgeous Kerry Washington) met Fitz in her long double-breasted topper. The now-famous jacket first hit the runway on supermodel Cara Delevingne at Burberry’s Spring 2013 show last September. And if you want to own a piece of Pope’s closet it’s going to cost you.

The jacket originally retailed for $2,595.00. The good news: It’s 50% off. The bad news: It’s basically sold out everywhere. The reality: We couldn’t afford it anyway!

For now, we’ll daydream while reading the best Tweets dedicated to Pope’s pristine jacket.

OMG…that coat was fierce on Kerry! One of my FB friends found it minutes after she appeared wearing it on screen so she was days ahead of People. Lol! So Charli, you are not alone. ;)

I don’t know how Kerry rocked it, but the model looks like a nurse in an insane asylum.

I too was wiping drool off my face. It’s gorgeous!

YES! THIS COAT GAVE LIFE! If I had that coat I would wear it in the dead of a Carolina summer! Olivia Pope SLAYED it!!

I love this show. It makes me want to dress up and wear something besides yoga pants and a running jacket.
