Keith’s Leading Lady Day 6: Patti Hansen

March 1, 2010


  • She was discovered by Peter Gert at a neighbor’s house at age 14 and invited to a party hosted by Willhelmina Models.  She was the hit of the night (wearing a borrowed dress from her neighbor’s daughter!) so the agency couldn’t resist signing her on the spot.
  • She was a free-spirit, always running around naked at shoots for Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Calvin Klein, and Revlon (to name a few).
  • She met Keith Richards in 1979 at Studio 54 and didn’t really know who he was–she didn’t listen to that kind of music.
  • She eventually wed Richards in 1983 in Cabo San Lucas.  They have two daughters, Theodora and Alexandra (can we ever get enough of them? We will be devoting several posts on the rock spawn after we make it through the never matronly mothers:)
  • She’s a born-again Christian, telling her daughters, “Do as I say, not as I did” (referencing her sex, drugs, and rock n’ roll sins of the 70s).
