Harrison Wright, Scandal’s infamous and exceptionally stylish gladiator in a suit, is a force to be reckoned with.


Columbus Short’s character is absolutely, hands down SHARP. From his always flawless shape up to the coordinated tie and pocket square, and oh so fly use of suspenders.  He is no Steve Urkel; Stefan Urqelle has finally arrived in 2013 reincarnated into Harrison Wright!

While women are drooling over ‘Olivia Pope Wear’, Harrison Wrights’ style should not go unnoticed. CHIC is a definite and charming is an understatement. Who Wright is, is influenced throughout his clothing.

Being a loyal and quality person is very important to Harrison and is demonstrated throughout his costume. He does not wear, throw-a-way pieces on the show. His clothing is very strategic  as we recall Season 1, Episode 3, Hell Hath no Fury, where he tells a client “no more yellow ties, you can always trust a man in blue.”

The fact that Harrison refers to himself and the rest of the team as gladiators in a suit is very revealing. Harrison will go through the trunges with Olivia no matter what and he is always dress accordingly. In an interview with BuddyTV, Columbus Short, describes not embodying the full character of Harrison Wright until he puts on the suit. Not until he is fully suited in he armor, he is not ready for battle.

Another round of applause for stylist Lyn Paolo!
