DKNY founder Donna Karan came to Harvey Weinstein's defense Sunday during a red-carpet interview at the CineFashion Film Awards in Los Angeles, suggesting his alleged victims may have been "asking for it," according to the U.K.'s Daily Mail.

Weinstein, 65, was forced out of Weinstein Co., the independent film company he co-founded and catapulted to Oscar glory, after The New York Times investigative piece said the producer sexually harassed women and paid off his accusers for decades.

"It's not Harvey Weinstein. 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 told the Daily Mail.

"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?"

She added: "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?"

Karan described Weinstein and his wife, Georgina Chapman, as "wonderful people."
