Gia Carangi Cause Of Death, “Many believe that Gia Carangi was the first major female celebrity to die of AIDS .” Gia’s story with Angelina Jolie entitled simply “GIA” hits Oxygen tonight.

Despite Janice Dickinson and Dorian Leigh’s claims, most believe Gia Carangi was the world’s first supermodel. Her story was made into a 1998 made for tv movie staring a younger Jolie opposite Faye Dunaway.

Gia worked the industry in the 1970s. But at 26 Gia died from AIDS.

If Gia’s look seems familiar to you, you’re not alone. Many immediately saw a similarity between Gia and Cindy Crawford when Crawford years later burst onto runways.

In later years, an addiction to heroin led to a downturn in Gia Carangi’s career. While her face was famous, her passing went widely unreported, many holding it to be the first major female celebrity to die of AIDS.
