Patti Hansen: A Portrait

Ivan Shaw, Karlie Kloss


Patti Hansen: A Portrait gives supermodel Patti Hansen’s short but incredibly influential career serious critical attention for the first time, following her transformation from a teenage model on the cover of Glamour to her reign as a dominating force in the pages of Vogue and on 12 covers. This luxe book catalogs the changing era of 1970s fashion and culture, documenting how Hansen served as muse to a crop of new, up-and-coming photographers including Arthur Elgort and Patrick Demarchelier while making influential editorial images with already well-established photographers such as Helmut Newton. A foreword by Karlie Kloss and contributor essays discuss Hansen’s cultural impact and assess her influence, analyzing the new cultural norms and ideologies that allowed models to be seen as strong, independent, and sexually empowered. With new insight into Hansen’s private life and gorgeous, exclusive images, Patti Hansen: A Portrait is a comprehensive tribute to a model and decade beloved by fashion fans and industry professionals alike.
