I wish someone would make a better movie about her life, the men she dated, how she ended up doing drugs and how she went from model to call girl.

Gia..unica,bellissima,stupenda...troppo triste la tua storia..avresti potuto spaccare il mondo,hai vissuto troppo poco,ma continui a vivere attraverso tutte le persone che ancora oggi dopo 25 anni continuano a pensare a te,alla dolce creatura che eri,e alla tua bellezza senza tempo, ancora incredibilmente attuale.Sei nel mio cuore anche se non ti conoscevo,e la tua storia mi ha fatto riflettere . il mondo ha perso il suo fiore piu bello,ma la tua immagine resterà per sempre. un sorriso.Elisa

Gia: You feel related to her yet you can`t even spell right, haha get a life kid.

I saw the movie with Angelina Jolie, who was very good in it. What a shame and what a waste of life. Gia was probably responsible for getting the modeling industry to recongnize brunettes again.

Confused??Feb 28, 2010

If the last cover Gia did was in 1982 the one with her hands behind her back...Then who is on the cover of Cosmopolitan October 1983 um.... that would be Gia Carangi??!!!??
