Throwback Tuesdays: Gia Carangi

My boyfriend and I watched GIA last night. Seen it a couple times before, and honestly the movie is a little cheesy. Not sure if it's suppose to be cheesy because it's based in the early 80s, but the soft light vignette filters and sultry sounds of the saxaphone make it hard for me to take it seriously. All bad cinema aside, the story behind Gia Marie Carangi is quite depressing. She was so beautiful, and so young! Below are some of my favorite images of Gia, including the infamous photos by Helmut Newton that put her on the map. Enjoy!
