After months of silence and despair, Scandal finally returned -- and more importantly the gorgeous styles of Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington)!

For the Feb. 27 episode, "Ride, Sally, Ride," Olivia wore her trademark designer coats, including a pristine white Prada Cappotto coat with silver chrome buttons, for a pivotal scene with frenemy, First Lady Mellie (Bellamy Young), who wore a chic, red Dorikes dress by Escada.

If Pope's white topper screams angelic, then Mellie's crimson dress just might scream devilish -- ora ngry. For their highly emotional lunch together, Mellie and Olivia face off -- and while we won't give away any spoilers -- let's just say it's intense, making the contrast between the red and white all the more noticeable.
