Model Gia Carangi – First Supermodel!

Posted: July 30th, 2009 in Angelina Jolie,fashion by LALATE

Model Gia Carangi - First Supermodel

PHOTO! Here is a picture of model Gia Marie Carangi, considered the first Supermodel. Model Gia Carangi’s story in GIA led by Angelina Jolie appears on Oxygen tonight.

GIA is the 1998 made for TV film airing tonight at 7 and 9:30 on Oxygen. The film earned Golden GlobesĀ  for Jolie and co-star Faye Dunaway. Jolie plays Gia who died from AIDS at age 26.

While Janice Dickinson and Dorian Leigh have often claimed to be the world’s first supermodels, many believe it was Gia, a powerhouse in fashion starting in the late 1970s. Years later people saw a similarity between Gia Carangiand then upstart Cindy Crawford.

In later years, an addiction to heroin led to a downturn in Gia Carangi’s career. While her face was famous, her passing went widely unreported, many holding it to be the first major female celebrity to die of AIDS.

Catch the movie GIA on Oxygen tonight and rebroadcast thereafter.

    I own the movie and Gia has been an insperation to me! I wish the best for her family. Gia was THE first supermodel and Janice Dickenson is played out.

    Gia, Janice, Cindy they can all be the first supermodels, who says all three cannot be the first. Woman, Blacks and now Gays fought for Civil rights. Who cares which one was technically first, they are all equally important. God bless Gia and her intese, yet sadly short, life!
