Gloria Vanderbilt dies at 95

Gloria Vanderbilt dies at 95

 

Fashion icon and artist, Gloria Vanderbilt, died Monday morning at home with family and friends at her side.

Her son, CNN's Anderson Cooper, said she was an extraordinary woman who loved life and lived it on her own terms. 

"She was a painter, a writer, and designer but also a remarkable mother, wife, and friend," Cooper wrote in a statement. "She was 95 years old, but ask anyone close to her, and they'd tell you, she was the youngest person they knew, the coolest, and most modern."

She was an heiress to Vanderbilt millions, but through her eponymous fashion brand, especially the jeans stamped on the derriere with her signature, Vanderbilt marked her own financial legacy. 

Cooper said she lived a much more interesting life than his own, seeing opportunity around every corner.
