Victoria's Secret Sent An Open Letter By High Profile Models Surrounding Abuse

Victoria's Secret Sent An Open Letter By High Profile Models Surrounding Abuse”

Epstein is now facing sex trafficking charges following claims of a sexual assault of a young model in the 1990s among many other accusations of inappropriate and predatory behavior towards young girls. We stand with the courageous women who have come forward and shared their stories, despite fears of retaliation or harm to their careers.

"While these allegations may not have been aimed at Victoria's Secret directly, it is clear that your company has a crucial role to play in remedying the situation", the letter read, referencing allegations of sexual misconduct which have been made against photographers Timur Emek, David Bellemere and Greg Kadel, all of whom previously worked with Victoria's Secret. We can and must do better.

The signatories, which include Milla Jovovich, Christy Turlington Burns and is backed by the TIME'S UP movement, urges Victoria's Secret to join the RESPECT Program. "It is time for RESPECT".

Ed Wolf, L Brands' senior VP of brand and creative, and Bob Campbell, VP of creative for Victoria's Secret, will take over from Edward Razek until a permanent replacement is found.

"How many other jobs can you expect to be asked to, you know, out of the blue, pose nude or topless, etc.?"

"There are few with Ed's passion and talent in this industry", L Brands' chief executive Les Wexner said in an accompanying note.

"This is so unfair", VS angel, Lais Ribeiro commented on the Model Alliance's IG post of the open letter.

The new program comes just days after The New York Times published a report about Jeffrey Epstein, who, according to the outlet, is a registered sex offender, was recently arrested for alleged sex trafficking and told young women he was a talent scout for Victoria's Secret. "So in the face of all of these very serious allegations we felt that we couldn't just sit silently and not say anything".

The program also hopes to ensure models are well aware of their rights with the aid of specialised training programmes to prevent sexual misconduct, while also providing access to an independent, confidential system in which they can come forward if they feel they're being mistreated in any way. The Brazilian first appeared on runways during Sao Paulo Fashion Week, where she was quickly spotted and signed by L'Oréal Paris to become one of its prestigious brand ambassadors. Together, we can lead the industry to RESPECT. (Sampaio also created history as the first transgender model to appear on Vogue Paris ' cover in 2017).
