One of the world's leading supermodels Tatjana Patitz has died, aged 56.
Her death was confirmed by the Daily Mail, but currently, her cause of her death is unknown.
Hamburg-born Tatjana famously starred alongside fellow supermodels Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista and Cindy Crawford on the cover of British Vogue in 1990.
The cover has become one of the most legendary fashion photos of all time, with Patitz also making the cover of US Vogue later in the same month.
Tatjana also starred in the famous George Michael music video for 'Freedom!' in 1990, with the same group of models.
The model appeared in British Vogue's' 1985 October issue and appeared on the cover six times before the now-iconic supermodels cover, which was photographed by Peter Lindbergh.
She also worked on campaigns for Chanel, Calvin Klein and Versace.
She is survived by her son Jonah Johnson.
