She told the website: ‘I think it’s important that Guess changes the culture of their offices, and there would be a lot of changes that need to be made before I would ever consider working with them again.’

Kate, who married baseball star Justin Verlander in Tuscany this past November, said: ‘I think change comes from the top, but he’s been there for years, so it’s more than just firing him to change the culture inside the offices.’

When she was asked: ‘What would you say to other girls who want to work for guess?,’ she offered a mordant: ‘Good luck.’

In a Time interview this week, Kate claimed that when she first met with Paul in 2011, he ‘forcibly grabbed my breasts and started feeling them – playing with them actually. After I pushed him away, he said: “I’m making sure they’re real.”‘

Kate alleged that as the meeting went on he ‘continued to touch me in a very dominating and aggressive way, grabbing my thighs, my arms to pull me closer, my shoulders to pull me closer, my neck, my breasts, and smelling me.’

She shared: ‘At one point he forcibly grabbed the back of my head so that I could not move and started kissing my face and my neck.’

‘I remember not wanting to say: “Get off of me” because I didn’t want to open my mouth to say anything because I didn’t want him to be able to put his tongue in my mouth. I had two options: do everything I could to wiggle away and avoid his pursuit, or punch the CEO of Guess. So I decided to just wiggle away.’

Paul gave Time a statement denying the accusations and saying: ‘I fully support the #metoo movement. At the same time, I will not allow others to defame me and tarnish my reputation. I have pledged to Guess and its Board of Directors my full support and cooperation with a fair and impartial investigation.’

Kate first hinted allegations when she posted on Twitter last Wednesday: ‘It’s disappointing that such an iconic women’s brand @GUESS is still empowering Paul Marciano as their creative director #metoo’.
