There Will Never Be Another Gloria Vanderbilt in this Town & Country is featured on the cover of November Town & Country 2010. The Grand Dame of New York Gloria Vanderbilt is the mother Anderson Cooper…some folks call him silver fox. Vanderbilt is the most fascinating of the 20th-century style legends,” the article begins. “Heiress, businesswoman, beauty, artist, mother, wife, daughter – Gloria Vanderbilt’s spectacular arc has been chronicled by the masters of photography for nine decades.” The cover story coincides with the publication of a new book “The World of Gloria Vanderbilt” by Wendy Goodman out this month.

These are some photographs of Vanderbilt in her New York apartment and early memoirs Once Upon a Time: A True Story and Black Knight, White Knight, Black Night White Night and It Seemed Important at the Time: A Romance Memoir.
