@lamag : In 1997, aspiring model Alicia Arden went to Shutters on the Beach hotel in Santa Monica for what she thought was a tryout for a Victoria’s Secret catalog shoot. ⁠

When she arrived, she encountered Jeffrey Epstein, who used his close relationship with Victoria’s Secret execs to pose as a model scout.⁠

Arden says she was groped and harassed by Epstein during the meeting, and that she reported his conduct to the local police. Then, she says, she never heard from the cops again and no charges were filed.⁠

If they would have taken me more seriously than they did, it could have helped all these girls…It could have been stopped.” — Alicia Arden ⁠
