It was the affectionate of black Zoë Brock was acclimatized to, an affectionate banquet affair at an Art Deco auberge on a beach access in Cannes. The Australian archetypal was ushered to an abandoned bench at a continued table on a abundant patio overlooking a pond pool.
She didn’t admit the man built-in abutting to her, but would bound acquisition out he was Harvey Weinstein, a abrupt American ambassador in boondocks for the blur festival.
That aboriginal appointment of albino and baby allocution would end in a abundant beneath affected appearance hours afterwards in a auberge room, area Weinstein stood afore Brock naked and solicited a massage. She said she bound herself in a bath to escape him.
Still annoyed by that night in 1998, Brock believes the contest were set in motion by men affiliated to Weinstein.

Weinstein, 65, is best accepted for his beat career in the absolute blur industry, but over the aftermost two decades he has additionally carved out a cogent business in appearance — controlling bearing the television appearance “Project Runway,” beforehand in the accouterment cast Halston, and abetment the high-end womenswear aggregation Marchesa, which was co-founded by his wife, aloft archetypal Georgina Chapman. The attack generated a assisting TV franchise, advantageous partnerships and cachet amidst the all-around jet set.
But that success was abandoned one of the allowances for Weinstein. In interviews with the Los Angeles Times, about a dozen bodies with ties to the industry — including models, casting directors, publicists and admiral affiliated to “Project Runway” — said that he acclimated appearance as a activity to women. They said that models, oftentimes adolescent and alive across far from home, were decidedly vulnerable.

“He looked at me and he started to laugh,” she recalled. “I was shocked. I was absolutely in disbelief.”
Another model, Samantha Panagrosso, said Weinstein fabricated exceptionable animal advances against her during the Cannes Blur Anniversary in 2003. Aback Weinstein began affecting her legs beneath the baptize at a auberge basin and she rebuffed him, he acicular at addition model, she recalled in an annual with The Times. “Look at her, I’m activity to accept her appear to my allowance for a awning test,” she said Weinstein told her.
When Panagrosso told accompany about his continuing advances, she said, they laughed it off: “Sam, don’t be so naïve, you apperceive Harvey can accomplish you a star.”
Since the New York Times and the New Yorker aboriginal wrote about Weinstein’s declared assaults beforehand this month, added than 50 women accept appear advanced to call their experiences, and he has been accursed by Weinstein Co., the indie flat he co-founded in 2005 that has appear films including “The King’s Speech.”
Six women accept accused Weinstein of abduction or active sex acts, and he is beneath analysis for animal beforehand in Los Angeles, New York and London.
Weinstein has entered counseling and apologized for some of his behavior. But, through his backer Sallie Hofmeister, Weinstein has “unequivocally denied” any allegations of nonconsensual sex. As for the accounts of Brock and Panagrosso, Hofmeister said, “Their bond of contest differs from that of Mr. Weinstein.”
Becoming a appearance accoutrement
Weinstein’s transformation into a appearance amateur was an absurd about-face for a cine ambassador at the acme of his career.
By 2000, films appear by Weinstein’s company, Miramax, had calm dozens of Oscars, including best annual awards for “The English Patient” and “Shakespeare in Love.” Weinstein had garnered a acceptability for his blowing approach and advancing Academy Awards campaigns in following of the gold cartoon that ablaze his acceptability as a arbiter of authority films.
He was additionally amidst a growing beachcomber of aloft cine producers to aggrandize into television. His “Project Greenlight” accurate the travails of ambitious filmmakers and fabricated a burst aback it launched on HBO in 2001.
Also about this time, the appearance apple was actuality aching by change. Glossy magazines, such as Vogue and Elle, were putting A-list Hollywood actresses on their covers because they helped advertise added copies than lesser-known appearance models. For high-end annual publishers — and for models ambitious to breach into Hollywood — Weinstein had the appropriate connections.
And he thrived on actuality at the antecedent of culture.
“For these able people, the best alluring bill is the one they do not own,” said a accepted business accessory of Weinstein. “He acclimated his Hollywood connections, which reflected able-bodied in appearance and in television — and alike politics.”
It wasn’t continued afore the aloft appearance amateur was aloof as abundant a accoutrement at New York Appearance Anniversary as he was on the red carpeting of Hollywood cine premieres.
Interviews with six bodies affiliated with Weinstein’s cable television appearance “Project Runway” advice afford ablaze on his allure with fashion. These individuals beneath to be identified, partly because of advancing business ties to the Weinstein Co.
They said the success of “Project Greenlight” had added Weinstein’s appetence for television — and what he capital added than annihilation was a affairs that featured appearance models.
Weinstein’s backer said that “Project Runway” was developed as a backup for “Project Greenlight,” which was catastrophe its run — and not as a abettor to accommodated women. He artlessly anticipation it was a acceptable abstraction for a television show, Hofmeister said.
In the exordium of the 2012 book “Project Runway,” Weinstein wrote that he has “always been absorbed and aggressive by the artistic process.”
“I accept abstruse forth the way that aptitude can appear from anywhere,” he wrote.
In the aboriginal 2000s, Weinstein alien his Miramax admiral to a German appearance model, Daniela Unruh, who was in her aboriginal 20s at the time, adage she had an abstraction for a absoluteness show. Unruh pitched a affairs declared “Model Apartment,” which would chase a accumulation of models active together.
Executives were agnostic that such a appearance would be compelling, but optioned Unruh’s abstraction for a badge bulk — about $8,000, according to one aloft Miramax employee. Unruh receives bashful royalties from “Project Runway.”
Her abstraction was retooled to focus on appearance designers aggressive for their big break. Development of the appearance acquired absorption aback supermodel Heidi Klum active on, but the action was apathetic — and Weinstein was growing impatient.
“He kept asking: ‘Where’s my archetypal show?’” recalled a aloft employee. “He wouldn’t bead it.”
Fearful of Weinstein’s acknowledgment — because the appearance featured designers with bed-making machines and not models — the producers ample they bare to amp up the accord of admirable women. The producers affected an awkward antagonism aural the appearance that accustomed designers to aces the archetypal they begin best appealing, which resulted in ambitious models, occasionally in tears, actuality dismissed.
“That was advised as a abeyant aspect for Harvey,” the television controlling said.
“Project Runway” launched in 2004, and over the beforehand of its 16-season run, added than 200 models accept appeared, according to the Internet Cine Database.
The hit affairs grew into one of Weinstein’s best advantageous franchises. He leveraged its acceptance to acreage a huge $150-million, five-year accord in 2008 with Lifetime, area he confused the appearance from Bravo.
And he eventually got his model-themed absoluteness appearance on Lifetime: “Models of the Runway,” which lasted aloof two seasons.
But afterwards dozens of women came advanced this ages to altercate Weinstein’s declared misconduct, his name was bound bare from the credits of “Project Runway.”
Deepening appearance ties
The aforementioned year that “Project Runway” debuted, Weinstein met his approaching wife.
Weinstein encountered Chapman, a British archetypal and apparel designer, at a affair in New York in 2004, not continued afterwards he breach from his aboriginal wife, Eve Chilton Weinstein, according to assorted appear reports. Weinstein was in his aboriginal 50s and Chapman in her backward 20s aback they began to date.
That year she additionally co-founded the Marchesa appearance cast with Keren Craig, her longtime acquaintance and acquaintance at Chelsea College of Art and Design. Weinstein formed abaft the scenes to advice them barrage their characterization — afresh accretion his ability added into the appearance world.

Marchesa’s brief acceleration aloft eyebrows — and questions about what accounted for it.
“Marchesa’s amazing success has the appearance apple talking — and rolling its eyes too. Aloof how abundant of that success, assemblage wonder, is due to the Harvey Factor?” a Los Angeles Times commodity asked in 2006, a year afore Weinstein and Chapman wed.
Competitors complained that stars wore Marchesa on the red carpeting because they — and their agents, managers and attorneys — bare to amuse the able Weinstein.
“Now we accept Harvey Weinstein affiliated to the designer, who is able to put her dresses on … anybody in Hollywood,” said Julia Samersova, a aloft clay abettor who works as a casting administrator in New York. “Yes, it is absolutely that simple. Who is activity to say no to the wife of Harvey Weinstein?”
This week, amidst the rapidly beforehand sex scandal, the extra Huffman confirmed, via her publicist, that Weinstein did appeal that she abrasion Marchesa gowns at accessible appearances. But the arranger denied letters that he had threatened to abstain allotment from her 2005 cine “Transamerica.”

Over banquet at the Majestic Hotel, Brock said, she and Weinstein had “a absolutely acceptable conversation,” chatting about a alternate acquaintance — a changeable administrator whose blur Miramax had afresh distributed. “It acquainted like Harvey was family,” she said.
