* BrokenAce[=/=]BrokenBird: Gia was a beautiful, talented and charismatic supermodel and something of a trailblazer for other models like herself to follow, namely of those who are brunette and not super-tall. In spite of this, she also was an incredibly lonely, damaged and heartbroken young woman who even over her highly successful career just wanted someone to love and accept her unconditionally and turned to drugs and self-destructive behavior to cope, which ultimately led to tragedy.

* TakeThat: At one point, a group of big-wig fashion industry people are in a meeting being led by someone who is clearly based off of Anna Wintour. Also while looking at photos of various models (which she declares them as "boring", "fat" or even ''"too dumb"''), she then sees a picture of a blonde, smiling model which makes her yell out, "Oh, God! I am so sick of seeing ''her'' face!" She is never identified, but good candidates for the woman could be either Christie Brinkley or Cheryl Tiegs.
