Her mother left her with a nanny and partied across Europe on her money for years. Vanderbilt searched for fulfillment as an artist, a fashion model, a poet, a playwright and an actress of stage, screen and television. Vanderbilt surfaced regularly in society columns and on lists of best-dressed women in America.
She married and divorced three men — a mobster who beat her; the conductor Leopold Stokowski, who was 42 years older and preoccupied with his own career; and the film director Sidney Lumet. In her later years the photographer Gordon Parks, who died in , was her companion. Vanderbilt had two sons with Stokowski and two with her fourth husband, Wyatt Cooper, who died at 50 in One son was Anderson; another, Carter Cooper, fell to his death from her Manhattan penthouse at He had been hanging from a terrace wall and, despite her pleas, as she later described the moment, let go.
In the mids, when jeans were cut mostly for men, the clothing manufacturer Mohan Murjani signed Ms. Vanderbilt to market jeans for women with her signature on the back pocket. She promoted them in memorable television ad campaigns and public appearances, setting new trends in apparel marketing as the first American to exploit a famous family name on designer clothing.

Critics generally applauded. Vanderbilt wrote in the voice of a child about her parents. Harrison wrote. Her mother was a self-indulgent beauty and jet-set precursor. She used it for years to support her own lavish party life in Paris, London, Biarritz, the Swiss Alps and the Riviera.
There were passing parallels between Little Gloria and Little Orphan Annie, with whom she identified all her life. The Harold Gray comic strip character was born in New York in The Daily News six months after Gloria, and led a similarly precarious life of dislocations and adventures. Gloria collected Little Orphan Annie mugs and other memorabilia. Gloria, too, had a lonely, insecure childhood, parked in Paris for months on end or trailing her mother around Europe with a nurse, Emma Sullivan Keislich, who, with a maternal grandmother, Laura Kilpatrick Morgan, provided some emotional support.
Gloria returned to New York in to have her tonsils out and stayed the summer to recuperate with her paternal aunt, Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, a sculptor, widow of Harry Payne Whitney and founder of the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York. Swayed by reports from private detectives, family servants and Gloria herself, Mrs.
Whitney concluded that the mother was a horrendous influence on the child, and extended her stay indefinitely. After a court cut her allowance, the mother sued to get Gloria and the allowance back. Whitney countersued to keep her niece.
