George Michael’s music video for ‘Freedom’ also featured the same group of models and in 2016 Patitz told the New York Times that George Michael was one of her ‘first teenage crushes’.
Although Patitz and Michael worked together on several occasions, they never actually met for the supermodel's portion of the video.

Tatjana Patitz said, “I was in my own zone. I had to kind of slide up and down the wall for part of the day. The feel of the set was so run-down, this big, loft kind of vibe.
“There was another setup with me laying on a chaise lounge with a black smoking jacket. I think I may have had a bustier on. And I was smoking, even. People still smoked in videos then and even in films”.
The Vogue model also worked with Chanel, Calvin Klein, and Versace.
Tatjana Patitz was married to Jason Johnson for six years and had their son Jonah in 2004.
Global editorial director of Vogue, Anna Wintour, said “Tatjana was always the European symbol of chic, like Romy Schneider-meets-Monica Vitti. She was far less visible than her peers—more mysterious, more grown-up, more unattainable—and that had its own appeal.”
