 T. Patitz

German born, Swedish raised supermodel, Tatjana Patitz , is one of the world's most notable models of the 20th century. Her tiger blue eyes are deeply mesmerizing. There is so much intensity to Tatjana. She is one of the 5 Legendary--------- UBER famous Supermodels.

It's not that they were ' sucky' models to begin with, because they inspired, they were beautiful, wild, gave meaning  to fashion, clothes, glamour and freedom. In fact George Michael's video, " Freedom " features the first Supermodels! Tatiana, Christy, Naomi, Linda, Stephanie, Claudia and Helena were all featured in his video and I believe , Kristen McNanamey....uber, uber, super models! And they were celebrated and continue to be celebrated.  This is what women want. Real women representing them.

Some may say, 'what about Kate Moss?'  Well, she arrived in the grunge waif fashion era. The Supermodels in the time of Tatjana Patitiz were fashion goddesses. And as Tatjana mentioned in her interview The Guardian, regarding perception of weight and size during her Era. Is this the reason why they were so inspiring that they were really swimming in the ocean of freedom?

" Everyone was a [size] eight or 10," says Patitz. "The girls were healthy. Sometimes you watched what you ate, but that was more for health reasons than to be really thin. I never starved myself."-Tatiana Patitiz in her candid interview with the Guardian.

They were already Supermodels, however that title became a solid reality when they all allegedly
gave themselves a raise in salary,  by demanding not to get out of bed for
for less than $10,000! And they were real women. or just women with excellent genes, who can eat whatever they like and still be models. Supermodels !

And like Naomi Campbell, her fashion career began in her teens. And somehow, they all survived the vices of mega success at such a young age.  If you are a true Fashionista, then you should know all about Tatjana. Karl Lagerfeld, the godfather of fashion has once described Patitz as his muse. She has appeared in coveted campaigns for Chanel, DeMarchier, Dior, Donna Karan, Bulgari, Calvin Klein , etc. .

Conceptual artist, Charles Ray has credited Tatjana's beauty as the impetus of  his photographic project for Prakett Magazine, aptly titled The Most Beautiful Woman in the World.

   Azzedine Alaia, Helmut Lang, Jill Sander, Dolce & Gabanna, Versace, Valentino, Donna Karan, Todd Oldham, Comme Des Garcons, Karl Lagerfeld and Chanel have all worked with Patitz and continue to hail her as one the most beautiful models to ever grace their catwalk in their clothes. Love to Tati!
