Olivia Pope Ties the Knot in Anne Barge [People]
Spoiler alert: The 100th episode of Scandal, which aired Thursday, sees the cast in an alternative universe, including Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) and Fitzgerald Grant (Tony Goldwyn) tying the knot.

Creator Shonda Rhimes revealed that she wanted to make sure the dress was "unbelievable, September issue-worthy, amazeballs — allll of the adjectives." Washington added that Olivia's wedding hairdo was inspired by Janelle Monae's Golden Globes look.

Billie Lourd, the daughter of late Carrie Fisher, surprised fans on Thursday when she appeared at a special Star Wars event in celebration of the film's 40th anniversary in Orlando, Florida. The Scream Queens alum stepped out in a custom white Tom Ford dress — not unlike the gown worn by Princess Leia (Fisher) in Star Wars: Episode IV — to pay tribute to her mom, who passed away in December after suffering a heart attack. "Star Wars became our family, our religion, our way of life... She loved you," said Lourd on stage, adding, "If life isn't funny, then it's just true, and that is unacceptable."
