Supermodel 101: Patti Hansen

Not only was she Vogue’s cool blonde, but she’s duality incarnated. Patti Hansen has a chiseled, open broad face, yet dainty features; she’s simultaneously the wholesome girl next door, with an athletic build, and a wild seductress with pillow lips and large feral eyes. The hottest thing to ever come out of Staten Island was scouted and signed to Wilhelmina ASAP at 16. In the 70’s she had a wild child reputation, often running around sets naked. In her defense she’s a Pisces and was born on Saint Patrick’s Day, the odds were stacked against her.

This hot girl is one of the most iconic glamour supermodels to come out of the disco decade and muse for the likes of Andy Warhol, Arthur Elgort and Richard Avedon, she still graces the biggest covers to this day (In Style, Playgirl, New York Magazine, Harper’s Bazaar and GQ to name a few) and has been the face of major campaigns (Revlon, Versace, Dior, Calvin Klein). A Studio 54 legend Patti can pull off any hairstyle (layered, long, pixie), beat cancers ass twice and is one half of one of my favorite love stories with her marriage to rock god Keith Richards. Her family didn’t approve of their courtship, a meeting that ended with Keith smashing a guitar and Patti crying, but true love persevered. The soulmates who met when Richards got her a bottle of champagne at Studio 54 have been married for nearly forty years. The supermodel rockstar pair have two kids, which hasn’t stopped her from being the subject and muse of eponymous book by Ivan Shaw and strutting down runways, despite living a quieter life. Rock goddess, free spirit, reformed party girl, call her what you want, but once a bad bitch, always a bad bitch. Which Patti shoot is your favorite?

Supermodel 101: Jerry Hall

Rapunzel in real life, the long hair don’t care Texan is the definition of GLAMOUR (pronounced glair-merrr), with signature styles so deep she’s easily the most emulated supermodel in drag culture. Exhibit A: although she looks hot with red or blonde hair, no other model in her field has made fiery locks iconic. Exhibit B: of course signature hues have a matching pose, running both hands through her hair on either side of her head is Jerry’s. Exhibit C: over the shoulder minimum 20 inch wave coiffure, depending on the rest of the get up one could easily pull off straight tresses, but the outfit has to be Exhibit D: over the top gowns and accessories from fur throws to dangly earrings, think Dynasty darling with a hint of Jessica Rabbit. This Studio 54 regular has covered covers for decades, with a diamond like bone structure that shines iridescent when made up.
A muse for the likes of Andy Warhol to Thierry Mulger and the most renowned photographers (from Helmut Newton to Terry O’Neill ) after being discovered on a beach in Saint Tropez, the striking legend went on to marry Mick Jagger who stole her from Bryan Ferry. The two have four kids together. Although she’s done many things, she’s most major for surviving her marriage with Jagger at his most rakish, without doing jail time. Deadass. In solidarity I watched Kept on VH1. Nothing stops a bad bitch for long, the stunning model and activist went on to bag billionaire Rupert Murdoch. She’s still got it, legendary.

Style With Lee Radziwill

“I can’t think of any woman more feminine than Lee Radziwill, not even Audrey Hepburn.” Truman Capote said of the socialite. The brilliant, chic baby sister of Jackie-O; despite their competitive relationship Lee styled her sister on numerous occasions.

The pisces Princess, who got her last name after marrying Polish Prince Stanislaw Albrecht Radziwill, had a style that was minimal, yet embellished. A plain white gown covered by an ornamental jacket, a red dress made sophisticated by the placement of straps across her chest, closed with a decorative brooch. She was balanced glamour, refined, chic and always memorable.

Even black leather jackets were stand outs one: a fur color and a cinched waist, the other given depth with a snakeskin texture. They just don’t make them like they use to. Her outfits are put together so consciously it radiates her intelligence. What does your style say about you?
