Gia Carangi biography

Gia Carangi (Gia Marie Carangi) was born January 29, 1960.

She was a model, and one of the first supermodels. She was featured on the cover of many magazines, including multiple editions of Vogue and Cosmopolitan, and appeared in advertising campaigns for luxury fashion brands such as Armani, Dior, Versace, and Yves Saint Laurent.

After Carangi became addicted to heroin, her career declined. In 1986, at age 26, she died of AIDS-related complications. Believed to have contracted it from a contaminated needle, she became one of the first famous women to die of the disease. Her life was dramatized in the 1998 HBO TV film, Gia directed by Michael Cristofer and starring Angelina Jolie as Carangi.

Died: November 18, 1986
