She is amazing, but her story was incredibly sad. I read it up a few months ago.

You could say it was a sense of what made that model different. They stood out in a way that the other models didnt, something about their looks are much stronger. I dont know what it is, maybe its the sense and look of their faces on film that shows they may have "lived" more.

Hi to you all!
before there was Amanda Moore, there was Gia Marie Carangi..
I know Gia and I'm a fan of Gia for a couple of years.
Gia and Amanda are lesbians but they are not the same...
they are beautiful in different ways..
I know almost every picture of Gia and I have a picture printed of Gia.
Gia is standing next to my computer with her hands in her hair and a brown wintercoat on... one of my fav.
Gia was a big mystery to me, but when I found more about her life, she captured my heart.
Her life, her sadness, her joy, her love, her drug abuse, her money, her friends, her family, her work in the fashion industry.. her everything!
it didn't mean Sh.. to her, yet it did mean everything...she felt, lonely.
Gia was beautiful in so many ways..
Gia was looking for love and acknowledgement!... and everyone has his/her own interpretation and this is mine.
Gia is the example of being successful and famous, but it didn't make her happy.. The rise and fall of a supermodel.
Why I have this picture of her standing next to my computer?
The reason why is, because life is precious.
Gia, she had her own problems and she dealt with it by using drugs, it gave her that warm and special feeling inside.
The fashion industrie can be a lonely place if you are a model. Traveling most of the time, work a lot and having difficulties to start a friendship/relationship with someone, because you'r always away...going some where.
So you can be a very populair and famous model but if you arn't happy...
if you think about it; advertising, publicity, the consumer.. it's all bassed on that.. us! our satisfaction, they are our puppets.. our beautiful puppets.
The word "Fashionistas" was from the book "Thing Of Beauty" by Stephen Fried. it's his word.
I like Gia so much because she was a Rebel, not a model at all in real life.
She wear men's clothes most of the time and yet she was this big supermodel...

iluvjeisa,
you don't know me, but I know that you are a fan just like me!
What do you think about this picture of Amanda Brandao, she's from Brazil and is a model for model agency Next in NY.

From Model: The Ugly Business Of Beautiful Women by Michael Gross
Helmut Newton, He said, 'Throw on the red lips and the bad eyes!'
if I see this picture of Brandao, I think of Gia!
