This Amendment No. 14 to Schedule 13D amends or amends and restates, where indicated, the statement on Schedule 13D relating to the Common Stock of the Issuer filed by Maurice Marciano with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 10, 2003, as amended by filings on June 21, 2004, July 8, 2004, October 21, 2004, May 15, 2006, February 20, 2007, July 23, 2007, October 18, 2007, April 23, 2008, January 29, 2010, April 27, 2010, August 8, 2011, September 19, 2012 and February 6, 2014. Capitalized terms used in this Amendment No. 14 but not otherwise defined herein have the meanings given to them in the initial Schedule 13D.
This Amendment No. 14 is being made primarily to reflect a reduction in the reporting person’s shared investment power and changes in the form of his ownership with no change in his pecuniary interest in the Common Stock following a distribution of shares by an LLC pro rata to its owners. Except as otherwise set forth herein, this Amendment No. 14 does not modify any of the information previously reported by Maurice Marciano in the Schedule 13D as amended to date.
Item 5. Interest in Securities of the Issuer
(a) As of August 4, 2014, Maurice Marciano may be deemed to beneficially own 12,050,854 shares of Common Stock which represents 14.1% of the 85,371,059 shares of the Common Stock that would be outstanding if he were to exercise all options exercisable within 60 days. Of these shares, the following shares are also includable in Section 13 reports by his brother, Paul Marciano: 1,488,299 shares as a result of Paul Marciano’s sole voting power over such shares, and 282,402 shares as a result of Paul Marciano’s sole investment power over such shares. If the 282,402 of the shares included in this Schedule and includable in the Section 13 reports by Paul Marciano in which Maurice Marciano holds no pecuniary interest are subtracted to eliminate double counting, Maurice Marciano would be deemed to beneficially own 13.8% of such outstanding shares. As of June 4, 2014, there were 85,247,759 shares of Common Stock outstanding, as reported in the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q of the Issuer for the quarter ended May 3, 2014.
(b) The 12,050,854 shares that may be deemed to be beneficially owned by Maurice Marciano, pursuant to Rule 13d-3 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, are held as follows:

* Maurice Marciano has no pecuniary interest in these shares. Because investment power over all shares held by this entity is held by his brother, Paul Marciano, all of these shares also may be deemed to be beneficially owned by Paul Marciano.
** Maurice Marciano has no pecuniary interest in these shares, which are owned by a charitable trust.
*** Maurice Marciano disclaims beneficial ownership of these shares, except to the extent of his pecuniary interest therein.
(c) During the past sixty days, Maurice Marciano has not acquired or disposed of any shares of Common Stock of Guess?, Inc. However, as a result of the July 11, 2014 distribution of shares by an LLC pro rata to its owners: (i) the form of Mr. Marciano's ownership of 1,164,971 shares of Common Stock previously held by the LLC changed, with no resulting change in his pecuniary interest or beneficial ownership, and (ii) Mr. Marciano ceased to have shared investment power over the remaining 1,164,971 shares previously held by the LLC which were distributed to accounts in which his brother, Paul Marciano, has a pecuniary interest. The result of the distribution eliminates double counting (for purposes of Rule 13d-3) of the shares previously held by the LLC.
(d) Except as disclosed herein, no other person has the right to receive or the power to direct the receipt of dividends from, or the proceeds from the sale of, the shares of Common Stock described herein.
After reasonable inquiry and to the best of my knowledge and belief, I certify that the information set forth in this statement is true, complete and correct.
