One of the many tips we've picked up from Olivia Pope's signature style is that a lady must always be ready to get glam. Pope further drove home this point in Scandal's season five opener as he donned a gorgeous black and white Rubin Singer gown to Fitz's presidential ball. Needless to say she stole the show. Although it may not be couture, there's no reason you can't recreate her style moment at your next formal event. Whether you're on a budget or ready to splurge, these gowns will help you nail the look.
