"women keep getting raped by designers, by us.

"if a lady walks on the street and sees an ad with a woman with her boobs and a**e in plain sight and she wants to be like that too, that's a way of raping her.

"you can rape a woman in many ways, either by throwing her in the basement or by suggesting that she dresses in a certain way."

the 85-year-old's comments drew criticism from some people in the fashion industry who questioned whether armani's use of the term "rape" was appropriate.
