Did the lingerie trade make Jeffrey Epstein possible?


Like the trial of Ghislaine Maxwell starts this week, Inside the beehive co-host Joe Hagan talk to Vanity Fair Correspondents Vanessa Grigoriadis and Gabriel Sherman about their reporting on the Jeffrey Epstein scandal – what we know, what we don’t know and what this whole sordid affair tells us about power and sexism in America. The last of Grigoriadis podcast series, Fallen Angel: The Story of Victoria’s Secret, details the fascinating history of the lingerie chain and the cultural damage it has caused to a generation of women, including its own models. Sherman, a featured voice, explains how the Ohio-based owner The Wexner fell under Epstein’s spell and helped fund his predatory designs on women and girls. The ironies are rich: “This man who was so linked to Jeffrey Epstein is also the man who made this lingerie that young girls coveted”, observes Grigoriadis.
