The long line of German beauties in the modeling trade that began with Margrit Ramme (a favorite subject on this blog) and Evelyn Kuhn in the sixties and seventies continued into the eighties and nineties, thanks in part to Hamburg native Tatjana Patitz. :-)
After beginning her modeling career at the age of seventeen (as of this writing, she's 48, for the record), Tatjana Patitz went on to grace over two hundred magazine covers worldwide. She appeared on the cover of U.S. Vogue seven times and the cover of British Vogue eleven times. She's also done fashion and beauty TV commercials for L'Oréal, Revlon, Dockers and Ralph Lauren, but she's also done TV ads for utilitarian products such as DuPont carpets and the Opel Corsa, a General Motors car made and sold in Europe.
Since 2009, Tatjana Patitz has represented the Italian fashion brand Marina Rinaldi; the picture immediately above is taken from a Rinaldi ad.
Fun fact: Although she was born in Germany, she was raised in Skanör, Sweden.
