Profile Bio Text
Patricia "Patti" Elvina Hansen (born March 19, 1956) is a former American model and actress.
Hansen, who is of Norwegian ancestry, was born and raised in the Tottenville section of Staten Island, New York. The youngest of six children, Hansen was discovered by photographer Peter Gert at age 14. After Gert took Hansen to a party hosted by former model and owner of the Wilhelmina Models modeling agency, Wilhelmina Cooper, Cooper signed the teen to her agency. Hansen soon moved to Manhattan, enrolled at the Professional Children`s School in Manhattan (she would later drop out) and began landing modeling jobs.
During Hansen`s modeling career, she regularly appeared on the covers and in the pages of Seventeen, American Vogue, Glamour, and Harper`s Bazaar. She also had campaigns for Calvin Klein (for which she featured on a billboard in Time Square), Revlon, and André Courrèges. At the height of her fame, Hansen appeared on the December 1978 cover of Esquire, celebrating "The Year of the Lusty Woman".
In the early 1980s, Hansen stopped modeling and began acting. She appeared in only three feature films including the 1981 romantic comedy They All Laughed, directed by Peter Bogdanovich. On December 18, 1983, Hansen married Keith Richards, guitarist of The Rolling Stones at the Finisterra Hotel in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Their daughters Theodora and Alexandra were born in 1985 and 1986. In 1993, Hansen returned to modeling when designer Calvin Klein used 1970s era models for his 1993 collection. In 2004, Hansen, along with daughters Alexandra and Theodora, were featured in ads for Guerlain`s perfume Shalimar Light.
