My friends would come over to my house like Harry King, Howard Bugler great hairdressers, great stylists, great photographers. They would pull me together, no matter what I looked like, they could always make me look better. After we took tons of Polaroids and everything and had great fun with makeup and hair and styling, we would get to Studio 54 whenever we wanted and we got right in. I had the Polaroids so naturally, the Brooklyn museum wanted those Polaroids.” - Sandy 18:33: “I believe Harry took a few pictures of Patti. Patti of course is in there. Patti is dancing on the cover of Night magazine and she was wearing a mesh halter top by Elsa Peretti. But the thing about Studio 54 you would wear things that were loose and flowy, so that when you danced the clothes just moved off your body and flow wherever they wanted to flow. So the photographer caught Patti with the mesh, totally in the center of her chest, and not on the sides of her chest where it was supposed to be. That's just a moment, that's just one moment where she was just dancing. Those clothes were meant to move so nothing stationary, nothing was fixed.” - Sandy 19:32: #PattiHansen in Scavullo Women (1982), Makeup by Sandy Linter, Hair by Harry King 21:14: Patti Hansen by Richard Avedon, Makeup by Sandy Linter, Hair by Scavullo (1977) 21:40: Vogue Germany October 1993 "Rockin' Patti" Photographer: Mark Abrahams Model: Patti Hansen Fashion editor: Susanne Kölmel Makeup: Sandy Linter for Elizabeth Watson Hair: Harry King for Kramer & Kramer/ Enzo Laera for Elizabeth Watson MAC Lip Pencil in Spice: https://www.maccosmetics.com/product/... 22:24: Patti Hansen in The Makeup Wakeup 24:48: #ChristieBrinkley is a timeless beauty 29:45: “There are no dictator’s in fashion anymore” - Sandy 31:51: A story you don’t want to miss from 1976…Patti Hansen & Winnie Holman by Helmut Newton.
