Is this possibly Gia? I think her nose looks a little short and her chin a little lax but I'm also thinking that the bruises on her arm could explain the lax chin?

Definetly NOT Gia. I have no idea how some pictures start circulating as Gia pics when they have nothing to do with her. There are a few out there.
BTW I LIVE for your Warm Gun sites. Amazing! I keep checking all the time. Every post is a joy! Most wonderful blogs ever!

I just finally watched the Gia film with Angelina Jolie again. I last saw it when I was a kid, haha. Anyways, I find it so weird how she is portrayed in the film since I always thought she looked so delicate and innocent in her pictures. It's hard to imagine she was this bisexual drug abusing badass rebel but I suppose that's what's so fascinating about her. You see these perfect pictures in Vogue and would never think all these crazy things were going on during the shooting. She was a true beauty

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?
I'm watching Gia (hence bringing up this thread, haha), and I was thinking... I do think that sometimes, it's better for the image that one dies young. James Dean will forever be remembered for being cool and brooding; his contemporary Marlon Brando, who died in old age, is often remembered for some of his more eccentric traits that emerged later in life. I can't help but wonder if a 51 year old Gia would be a botox-ed up "cougar" working the reality circuit a la Janice Dickinson, or if she would have aged as gracefully as some of her other contemporaries (Christie Brinkley comes to mind).

No, in her case, her face and body were just the top of a talent ice berg. Like Ian Curtis, very little of what she had was ever seen. This girl was talented way beyond modeling. Once she had come to terms with her personal problems by 30 she could have been something great...definitely not a cougar like Janice and not obsessed with keeping her looks like Christie Brinkley.

^ Yes she had the look of her time, complete versatility as described by Wilhelmina as being able to transform from an innocent looking girl into an exotic creature not of this earth. A career model if she hadn't imploded and died so young.

Check out style.com at this moment

www.style.com

It has a picture of Gia with Christiaan the legendary hairdresser. It's said to be after a shoot with Arthur Elgort. It says 1986, but that's most likely wrong.
