"Scandal" fans, rejoice! Your queen has landed yet another magazine spread.

The 38-year-old is widely regarded for her keen sense of style both on screen and off, but revealed in the mag that wasn't always the case. "I just put myself in a boot camp of figuring it out, and realized that I really loved it," she said. "I guess because I came to it later in life, I realized, 'Oh, going to a fashion show is like going to the opening of Degas at the Met or going to see Swan Lake.'"
