Kerry Washington seemed to be taking fashion cues from her husband, PEOPLE reported.

"The morning after PEOPLE's Best Dressed issue was announced, I made sure to come to work in sweats," the 36-year-old told PEOPLE at this week's Saks Fifth Avenue celebration for the season 3 premiere of Scandal.

However, they weren't just any old sweats. The costume designer of the show, Lyn Paolo, said that the happy newlywed came to the set showing team spirit.

"She came in her husband [Nnamdi Asomugha]'s giant football player sweatshirt and said 'Look, I'm the best dressed!' It was pretty funny." 

Guillermo Diaz added, "She comes in her comfy clothes, you know, but in an hour, she's looking totally, completely glamazon." 

If there is a question if there is a fashion face-off between Washington and Olivia Pope, "Kerry would win. She pushes boundaries and is brave and bold. But I think Olivia lives within the Washington parameters of fashion." 

How can Washington manage to play a troubled character on-screen but is happy in real life. "She knows how to go to work and deliver," said Diaz, "Then step away from it, shake it off and let it go, and go back home to her hubby."
