Patitz's features almost confuse. Like Garbo or the Mona Lisa, the inexplicable gifts of line and luminescence defy definition. In 1983 at the age of 17, Patitz entered and became a finalist in the Elite Model Look, and based on a Polaroid, she was placed third by Elite Model Management founder John Casablancas.

Patitz won a contract and moved to Paris to begin working as a model.She shared the British Vogue cover with Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista, and Christy Turlington; the portrait of the five women is regarded as the cover that sparked the supermodel phenomenon of the 1990s,helping each woman attain global appeal. Regarded as one of the "Original Supermodels".

Patitz's work bridged the eras of the exhibitionist 1980s and the minimalist 1990s in an enduring way, as Barker concluded, Patitz is greatly responsible for establishing the acceptance of statuesque and curvaceous beauty in an industry of extreme thinness.





Modelling as a profession was first established in 1853 by Charles Frederick Worth, the father of haute couture. Types of modelling include: fashion, glamour, fitness, bikini, fine art, body-part, and commercial print models.
