Gloria Vanderbilt dies at age 95


(CNN) — Cnn reports American artist, fashion designer and socialite Gloria Vanderbilt has passed away.

Vanderbilt’s son, CNN’s Anderson Coopers, says she died at home with friends and family at her side.

Vanderbilt inherited millions as the great-great-granddaughter of 19th century railroad magnate commodore Cornelius Vanderbilt.

She was the mother of four sons and wife to four men.

Anderson Cooper released a statement Monday saying “Gloria Vanderbilt 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. 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.”
