Do you have specific rules for what Olivia wears and when?
Kerry and I are a little obsessive. Like, she can only wear white when she’s wearing the white hat. When she doesn’t know what she’s doing, she wears grey. If she’s in a lot of trouble, and she’s conflicted, she’s in black and white. At Saks this week, they were showing me all of these dresses and I was like, ‘Olivia doesn’t wear dresses. She only wears dresses in the past. That was when she was happy and in love with Fitz. Now she wears the pants because that’s who she has to be now.’ She always wears a platform sole—Miu Miu, Prada, Gucci—to stay solidly rooted to the ground. But if she’s feeling vulnerable we’ll put her in a Manolo stiletto with a pointed toe, and she teeters a bit more. We change the shoes up a lot. People don’t notice.
