if she was not in MODEL AS MUSE than that book would be worthless.

they are compiling a book with all or most of Gia photographs!!!! I think Stephan Fried is doing this. If he didnt do it someone else would have eventually.

the entire fashion industry will buy it plus she is larger than fashion so a lot of people outside fashion too. I do hope most of her pictures are covered in the book. most of my friends who worked with her have sent their pictures.

Sandy Linter said that video is from a time when Gia had just gotten into shape again...in the not too healthy way. It really is a shame that this is one of the few clips we have of her talking...

Just found an amusing quote at boyculture by Eileen Ford on her brief encounter with Gia:

The last photo. Every bit as beautiful as her 1979/1980 years. What year is it? And where from?

Check it out:

These pictures have been posted many times before, but I think the official quality here is lovely. Also, the bio on Gia is very interesting.
