Donna Karan Defends Harvey Weinstein, Wonders If Women Are 'Asking for It'

While many in Hollywood have spoken out against Harvey Weinstein, Donna Karan is defending her movie mogul friend amid allegations of sexual misconduct.

When asked about the allegations, the 69-year-old designer wondered if women may be "asking for it" by the way they dress.

"You look at everything all over the world today and how women are dressing and what they are asking by just presenting themselves the way they do. What are they asking for? Trouble," Karan said.

"I think we have to look at ourselves. Obviously, the treatment of women all over the world is something that has always had to be identified," she said. "Certainly in the country of Haiti where I work, in Africa, in the developing world, it's been a hard time for women."

"To see it here in our own country is very difficult, but I also think how do we display ourselves? How do we present ourselves as women? What are we asking? Are we asking for it by presenting all the sensuality and all the sexuality?"

"And what are we throwing out to our children today about how to dance and how to perform and what to wear? How much should they show?"

"Harvey has done some amazing things," she then said, adding Weinstein and his wife are "wonderful people."
