What can we say about Kerry Washington's Scandal character Olivia Pope? Girl's got style. So much so, that she's incited a passionate fashion following (particularly for her sharp coat selections). From the office appropriate silk shirt to trendy wide-leg pants, chic pencil skirts, and of course, enviable structured jackets (seriously, can we hire Pope and Associates for wardrobe advice?), she's got day-to-night style for the powerful working woman on lock.

Since the season three finale of Scandal airs tonight (!!!) we decided to pick out the most Olivia Pope-worthy wedding dresses. After all, the gladiator loves wearing white (people actually started calling it "Olivia Pope White"). Here, wedding dresses from recent bridal runway shows that would bring a tear to Fitz's (or maybe Jake's?) eye.

Look familiar? We couldn't help but think of Olivia's dress for Fitz's birthday (you know, when he got shot). While the top of hers was gold, the empire waist has a similar pattern of embellishment and an equally flowy skirt.

If Liv were to have her princess moment, we're pretty convinced it would happen in this stunning Naeem Khan gown. The sleek gold bodice appeals to her modern, and structural style sensibilities while the skirt gives her that extra oomph a bride needs.

Monique Lhuillier

Like we said, Liv loves a good coat (white trenches are her signature). So we imagine her wedding dress to mimic a jacket's structure. This regal long-sleeve lace Monique Lhuillier gown does just that — and the tulle over-skirt creates the illusion of outerwear. Plus, the added volume is similar to many of Pope's coat selections as well.

A running theme in Olivia's wardrobe? Clean minimalist lines. We wouldn't be surprised if on her wedding day she stepped out in sleek simple sheath. This Houghton dress is just that — plus it would look killer on Liv's figure.

Olivia prefers to go for structural details instead of choosing clothes with heavy embellishments. One detail she particularly favors? Modern, asymmetrical lines (remember the geometric black-and-white gown?). This Angel Sanchez ball gown reinterprets the Rubin Singer gown she wore to White House Correspondents' Dinner in a big bridal way and we love it.
