One of my fondest memories was the 'Wild at Heart' shoot for 'American Vogue' in 1991 where we were photographed by Peter Lindbergh and styled by Grace Coddington near the Brooklyn Bridge We wore Schott biker leathers and Chanel fashions as a tough gal gang that appealed and still appeals to the power of the independent female spirit.Tatjana was a pleasure to work with - she possessed an exceptional beauty and strength of character while always remaining down to earth.We will miss her dearly and I speak my sincere condolences to her family and friends.'
