Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue model Kate Upton, 25, has accused Guess co-founder Paul Marciano of sexually harassing women in the fashion industry
Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue model Kate Upton, 25, has accused Guess co-founder Paul Marciano of sexually harassing women in the fashion industry.
The American supermodel, who is married to MLB Houston Astros player Justin Verlander, first tweeted, "It's disappointing that such an iconic women's brand @Guess is still empowering Paul Marciano as their creative director #metoo."
She then posted a screenshot of her tweet on Instagram and wrote, "He shouldn't be allowed to use his power in the industry to sexually and emotionally harass women #metoo."
While she did not reveal if she was a victim, Upton did the widely used #MeToo hashtag which has become synonymous with those personally affected by sexual abuse or harassment. Upton has been a model for Guess back in 2010 and 2011 for various lingerie and accessory fashion campaigns.
