It was Gia, just standing there and smiling.
The day after the shoot, late in the afternoon, my phone rang and it was Gia.
Gia Carangi 101: The Essentials.
Bart's Island in the Caribbean for Vogue, hair by Harry King, makeup by Way Bandy, May 1980 Gia Carangi photographed by Scavullo in St.
She was raised with her two older brothers.
She ran inside and got one ear pierced and I was just along for the ride.
No shot of Gia is more captivating than the raw image of the model featured above.
Considered by some to be the first supermodel, she was featured on the cover of fashion magazines, including multiple editions of Vogue and Cosmopolitan, and appeared in advertising campaigns for such fashion houses as Armani, Christian Dior, Versace, and Yves Saint Laurent.
