Gia Carangi born 29. January 1960 in Philadelphia. In 1977, Gia left for New York to start her modeling career. She was a model of mere accident. As Gia was letting lose at the local Disco, a photographer saw her, and asked to take her picture. gia marie carangi picturesGia began dancing wild around the bar, arms stretched out, hair in her eyes and squealing like a school girl. When the images reached the desk of Vogue magazine, there was no stopping her.
