Ambra Battilana Gutierrez, an Italian model who helped bring down now-disgraced movie moguel Harvey Weinstein by reporting his sexual misconduct in 2015 to police, is finally getting her career back after her name was dragged through the mud.
Gutierrez will take to the runway of the 2018 New York Fashion Week Wednesday after spending years being rejected by top designers following her public brush up with Weinstein. As previously reported, Gutierrez claims that Weinstein grabbed her breasts and put his hand under her skirt during an altercation at his New York office in 2015. She claims that she said “no,” left his office and reported his misconduct to the police just hours later.
The star says the abrupt stop to her otherwise blooming career caused her to slip into a depression and gain weight, further hampering her modeling prospects.
