Last month, Guess co-founder Paul Marciano found himself in the #MetToo conversation after former Guess model Kate Upton vaguely accused him of being a creep. Paul responded by denying it and accusing her of getting fired for being a sloppy mess. Kate eventually came through with a comprehensive story told to TIME magazine detailing her working relationship with Paul. Kate’s allegations against Paul could be boiled down to the following: he was allegedly a horny old man with a mean streak who called Kate fat when she turned down his advances.
Paul again denied he’d done anything wrong, and promised his full cooperation with Guess as they investigated the matter. CNBC is reporting that while Guess investigates, Paul Marciano will step away from his position at the company.
Last week, Kate Upton joined the #MeToo movement on Twitter by implying that Guess co-founder Paul Marciano had been gross with her in some capacity (Paul responded by fully denying everything and claiming Kate was a mess on set). Kate didn’t get into specifics at the time; she told TMZ photographers she couldn’t wait to tell her story, but that she needed more time. And now she has.

She elaborated a little further on Instagram by saying: “He shouldn’t be allowed to use his power in the industry to sexually and emotionally harass women #metoo.” Kate also said she’d tell her story when the time was right. Instead of investigating why his comany’s stock just dove south, Paul Marciano shot back at Kate’s accusations with some of his own.
Former Guess Girl Kate Upton has taken a head-first dive into the murky waters of the #metoo movement and accused Guess co-founder Paul Marciano of something.

What happens to those hats if they DON’T win? Do they become collector’s items? Isn’t that a little “Dewey Defeats Truman“ of them?
Model and Twitter activist Kate Upton married her longtime boyfriend, World Series-winning Houston Astros pitcher Justin Verlander, in what E! describes as a “lavish Italian wedding” yesterday. Justin’s kind of having the best week ever, huh? He won a World Series ring and he married the woman that man straight guys in the world fap over. The afterglow will probably dim the next time he gets pulled from the mound and his new wife gets indignant and jiggles her way over to Twitter to tweet for the coach’s arrest because it’s a national disgrace
The annual Cannes amfAR Gala for AIDS research was held last night, and it’s an event that truly brings out the best attempts in fashion. This is what Nicki Minaj looked like, and I love it all. The Morticia Addams hair paired with the un-dead boudoir eleganza from Roberto Cavalli and the ten pounds of diamonds makes her look like Vampira’s money-hungry hustler sister Scampira. Watch out, rich dudes – she’ll suck the life out of you and your bank account!
