Model Kate Upton accuses the co-founder of Guess of sexual harassment
US supermodel Kate Upton accused co-founder of fashion giant Guess Paul Marciano of sexually harassing women.
Upton, 25, did not cite any specific incident in her comments on Wednesday against Marciano, co-founder and creator of Guess, 65.
The supermodel, who was the image of the Guess brand, thus becomes the latest star to add her voice to the world campaign #MeToo against sexual misconduct, which began last October after accusations against the mogul of Hollywood Harvey Weinstein.
“It’s disappointing that an iconic women’s brand like @Guess continues to empower Marciano as creative director #metoo,” Upton wrote on Twitter.
Marciano was co-founder of Guess in 1981 and is its executive president and creative director since 2015.
Upton, who has also worked as an actress in some films, is married to the star of the Houston baseball team Astros, Justin Verlander, and is known for having appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated magazine .
In 2011 he became a celebrity by being the image of the Guess brand, a position held by models such as Claudia Schiffer and Cindy Crawford and, more recently, Gigi Hadid.
