According to Harper’s Bazaar, “Actually, Patitz’s qualities are almost confusing. Just like in Garbo or the Mona Lisa, the mysterious powers of line and luminosity defy categorization.” Tatjana Patitz has been one of the most demanded models.

Even Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour once stated that Patitz had always been one of her favourite models. Patitz’s work bridged the minimalist 1990s and the exhibitionist 1980s in a way that endured, as Barker noted: “The most lasting photos of her were when she was looking like herself.”

Linda Sivertsen is adamant that Patitz was a groundbreaking role model in glamour, proving that statuesque and curvy beauty could gain credibility. This area posed extreme thinness as its standard. In 2000, she featured in Korn’s music video for “Make Me Bad,” reaching number ten on the Mainstream Rock Songs chart!

In Rising Sun, she had her first significant cinematic appearance as a murder victim (1993). After that, Patitz made appearances on shows, including The Larry Sanders Show and The Single Guy.

The 1999 thriller Restraining Order featured her in the lead role. Patitz was recognized by Marie Claire magazine in 2020 as one of the top supermodels who dominated the runway in the 1990s.
