Jennifer Lopez Releases Statement Amid Accusations Against Guess's Paul Marciano
Update: Since the release of Jennifer's Guess campaign, Kate Upton has spoken out against Paul Marciano and alluded to sexual misconduct by the Guess cofounder. This happened to be on the same day that J Lo was attending her Guess launch party. The "Amor Amor Amor" singer released a statement to DailyMail.com about her stance on harassment. "My position on these issues is well known, as I have been very vocal about them. I do not condone any acts of sexual harassment, violation, or misconduct," she stated. "Any accusation should be fully and thoroughly investigated. I will continue to support our rights as women."
Paul has since responded to Kate's allegations, telling TMZ, he was shocked and can't figure out what claims she has against him. He also said he won't apologize because he's done nothing wrong. "If she has a claim, there's one place to tell the truth and that's in court or to the police." Kate briefly spoke out while leaving the airport, also to TMZ. "I'm excited to tell my whole story but a walk to the car is not going to cover it," she said. "I think obviously it's a huge problem . . . I think a lot of people around them know about it and they need to speak out."
Original post: Can we expect anything less from Jennifer Lopez? The 48-year-old made history starring in Guess's Spring 2018 campaign as the oldest Guess Girl ever. She dethroned Claudia Schiffer, who was 41 when she modeled for Guess's 30th anniversary in 2012. "When I got the call from Paul Marciano asking me to become the new Guess Girl, I was thrilled and excited to be a part of such an iconic brand that I have loved since I was a teenager," Jennifer stated in a press release. "When I look back at early Guess campaigns through the years, you see all of these beautiful models and iconic images that Paul has created. It is a tremendous compliment to have been selected for Guess's Spring 2018 campaign."
Guess's cofounder, Paul Marciano, art-directed the campaign that featured Jennifer looking very retro and sexy in a black and white spread. The whole shoot is very reminiscent of the brand's original campaigns. "Jennifer Lopez is a Guess Girl's dream! She is an accomplished artist; she is iconic and sensual," Paul stated in a press release. "Jennifer's impact and influence continues to grow and this campaign celebrates the notion that women get more beautiful and talented as they gain life experience. Her beauty and class shine through this campaign."
