Now there’s a woman who wears her clothes with con­vic­tion. Lyn Paolo, cos­tume de­signer for Scan­dal, on dress­ing a char­ac­ter who has be­come a fash­ion phe­nom­e­non, spawn­ing breath­less Pin­ter­est boards and sell­out runs on de­signer and look-alike fash­ions: “When I’m de­sign­ing a more fash­ion-ori­ented show, I have to look at the ac­tor and the char­ac­ter to­gether,” ex­plains Paolo. “Body type al­ways speaks to the char­ac­ter, but it’s my job, and the job of hair and makeup, to trans­form an ac­tor into the char­ac­ter. I al­ways feel that when an ac­tor looks in the mir­ror and says ‘That’s her!’ I’ve done it.”
