Model Kate Upton reveals Guess co-founder Paul Marciano groped her, harassed her when she was 18


  • According to Upton the first time they ever met, on the set of a Guess shoot, he grabbed her breasts to see if they were real

  • He also forcibely kissed her and tried to get her alone in her hotel room

  • After she refused his advances he fired her for being too fat a month later

  • She kept up communication with him for awhile because she felt like her job was on the line. He would repeatedly send her sexual texts

  • At different shoots photographers Yu Tsai and Ellen von Unwerth stepped in to shield her from Marciano

  • Wants agencies to step up and protect their models instead of just sending in another girl when one of their models refuses to do a shoot because of harassment

  • "Honestly, fashion is not any different from any industry. When I come on set, I’m very professional, everyone around me is very professional. Not even stylists touch my body without my consent. They ask me before they do."
