Born This Way: Friends, Colleagues, and Coworkers Recall Gia Carangi, the Supermodel Who Defined an Era by Sacha Lanvin Baumann

Hey guys, this is the first book review I’ve ever written so it might be a bit crappy. But if you’ll be patient with me, I’m sure I’ll get the hang of it soon enough. 😉

DISCLAIMER: I received a free electronic copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This will not affect my review in any way.

Goodreads Summary: At barely the age of 18, Gia Carangi had already landed a contract with one of the most prestigious modeling agencies in the world. Blessed with a magnetic beauty and a unique personality, she reached the peak of success in only a few months. For all intents and purposes, Gia’s life quickly became a fairy tale—or so it seemed. In only a few years, Gia’s destiny was complicated by unscrupulous individuals and her inability to manage her cataclysmic success. Once on that road, the legendary model began a decline that led to her tragic end. Born This Way brings to light stories and unusual memories of Gia, offering new perspectives on her life, career, and personality.

Rating: 8/10

This book does a very admirable job of covering just about every aspect of Gia’s life, including both the good and the bad. It gives a very straightforward and honest look into her life. It was well written but at times the interviews would overlap and say the same thing which made it boring. I enjoyed reading about a supermodel and realizing there’s more to it than just beauty.
