Yes. It's one of those losses to the world you can't stop thinking about. Obviously there are other people I knew personally I wish were still around and that's an even stronger feeling. But as for the artist/personalities joy-bringers that ever walked the earth....Gia is high up on the list. The promise of what could have been.

I get that feeling about her and Ian Curtis. I know she really succumbed to the pressures around her - but what if - what if! - she had learnt to direct her immense presence and power?

it's been such a long time, and i still can't believe it. i mean, i wasn't even born when she died, but it's so hard to accept that someone with such a beauty and such a presence is gone, it's just sad. she had such a big impact in my life in so many ways. it's really, really a terrible loss
rest in peace, beauty queen

We must be mind mates. I was just coming here to post almost everything you just mentioned in your post. Haha. To me, her beauty is perfect. I know that her life wasn't and for whatever reason, that makes her even more appealing to me. I neither expect nor desire perfection in anyone. This is what gives each of us character.

I'm just sad that Gia was not able to live long enough to really get her life back on track and give the world even more beautiful pictures.

Re: Pic/Is it Gia or Cindy?: I was born and raised in DeKalb just like Cindy. She did a lot of local modeling in high school and graduated in 1984. I don't think that picture is of Cindy. However, I don't know that it's Gia either. It could be.

I'm definitely interested in the Simply Gia coffee table book that's supposed to come out this year. Hopefully it does very soon.

TODAY IS GIA'S 51 BIRTHDAY.


To me there are no words to express how I feel about this woman and her story.
