Last night, Scandal aired its 100th episode, and producers went all out to make sure fans across the country were satisfied with the milestone episode that featured a WEDDING! And not just any wedding 鈥 Olivia Pope鈥檚. Well鈥 sort of.

While the crisis management consultant played by Kerry Washington didn鈥檛 actually tie the knot, the show explored an alternate reality where she married Fitzgerald Grant in a custom Anne Barge gown that had our jaws on the floor.

Washington posted several shots of herself in the dress, writing, 鈥淪o much joy in my heart. 100 episodes in. Never could have imagined or predicted all the love and gratitude that鈥檚 in my heart today. There鈥檚 no family like the #ScandalFam and that includes every single one of you #gladiators too!鈥

Part of the Barge鈥檚 Fall 2016 collection, Pope鈥檚 dress reportedly retails for $4,500 and features a silk chiffon satin bodice with an Italian silk Kalika.

The actress opted for comfort while filming, gleefully showing off a behind-the-scenes look that included a little hidden secret 鈥 like the fact that she was actually wearing a pair of jeans beneath the dress.

The truth underneath it all. #scandal #scandal100 Gotta be comfy.

鈥淭he truth underneath it all,鈥 she wrote. 鈥淕otta be comfy.鈥

The 40-year-old also dished on the rest of details that made the look extra special, such as the Tiffany & Co. pearl earrings that she loved so much, she bought them. 鈥淭hey were beautiful Tiffany鈥檚 drop pearls and I just thought they would be special to have for the rest of my life to remember this milestone,鈥 she told E!.

As for her gem-accented hairstyle, Washington says it was an homage to Janelle Monae鈥檚 Golden Globes look.

We knew it looked familiar!
