Rose McGowan's iconic VMA dress was a response to sexual assault



Rose McGowan says her completely see-through dress at the 1998 MTV Video Music Awards had a purpose: it was a response to her sexual assault.

“I [wore] that for a reason. It was my first public appearance after being raped. And I thought, it was kind of like Russell Crowe and ‘Gladiator’ when it comes out in the ring and he’s like, ‘Are you not entertained?’ And that was why I did that. That was my response to being assaulted.

Rose was one of the first women to accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault, alleging that he raped her in his hotel during the Sundance Film Festival in 1997. He has since been accused by more than 60 women, and currently faces a potential life sentence.
