I saw Gia the movie with Angelina a while back. Well, I didn't get to see all of it, just up to when she's in the Geisha outfit It was pretty good so far

On topic, (I hope) I agree with what Cindy Crawford once said that "Who's to say that the modelling industry is worse now than it was then?" I mean, then the models were approachable and were household names, but today everyone can be considered beautiful, from the conventional looking ones to the holocaust survivors to the stwie look-a-likes plus size girls...

About the height and weight-

A) Normal people aren't/weren't Gia sized, or the size of any other 'super'. Unless marked plus sized, none of the models I've ever seen have been 5'4 and 140 lbs. Gia was 5'7 and probably c. 115 lbs.

Gia would have been famous at any height, like Kate. When you don't have one of the requirements, then you must be the best of the best in all the other departments- measurements, how you walk, how you pose, your energy and intensity. And Gia had that.

I loved her. I definetly prefer the models of the 70s/ 80s. They had spunk and personality. The original supermodels cannot be beat. Today, it seems like any emaciated girl who looks like a little boy can be a model. Most of the models on the runway today just don't seem to have the same personality and charisma as the models in the past.

In a way I suppose we are back in the 30s and 40s where models were clotheshangers only and in no way comparable to the stars of the films. Unfortunately, there are no movie stars who live up to the likes of Garbo, Dietrich or Lilian Gish today.

It's true that any girl who is tall and skinny can aspire towards becoming a model. But I think, since 2003, we have seen some trends towards a more beauty and personality oriented look - which is still very girlie because of the 60s influences. Between 1995 and 2002 there was an abundance of models who completely lacked glamorous appeal - I must say I'm very happy those days are over.

Totally agree. Gia was probably thinner when she was ill on drugs, and still modeled during those times. When she was undergoing methodone treatments, her weight went up a little bit, and during the last Cosmo cover she ever had, Franceso Scavullo remarked on her weight gain.

However her beauty was the ruling factor in whether or not she could still continue to model while abusing drugs and showing up late to castings...many other models would've been dropped in a second by an agency if she behaved like that, but not Gia, they couldn't lose their investment in her.
I miss Gia and I doubt we will ever see a model like her in the near future.

I am not an expert, but it seems for me that any models with some issues become hot. As mentioned by someone earlier, Gia did everything: drugs, sex, AIDS and early death. Yet she was stunning. Kate Moss had some issues when she was starting out, the same with James King.

Finally I see a picture of her! I was wondering for such a long time who she was.

In this pic she looks like Ana Beatriz Barros I think.
