Inspiration From Gloria Vanderbilt


It’s been a while since I haven’t done one of these. Inspiration is everything to me.

A few months ago, I picked up a copy of The World of Gloria Vanderbilt, a book about this American lady, her paintings and life story which I highly recommend checking out. Being a huge Anderson Cooper fan is how I came to Gloria Vanderbilt, his beloved and inspirational mother. What hasn’t she achieved in life? She is an artist, perfumista, jean designer, mother, model for Harpers Bazaar and most of all a woman who has reinvented herself over and over (something I relate to very much). This dame also lived such tragedy and deep sorrows in her life from a young age, it is so refreshing to see a person be so full of zest at 88 years old. I urge you to watch her being interviewed by Anderson Cooper or read her book.

Because we are a beauty blog, I also want to bring attention to Ms Vanderbilt’s unique sense of style and her art. Photo credit Gloria Vanderbilt by Richard Avedon for Harper’s Bazaar, 1960’s via impulseandvision.blogspot.com

  1. What a stunning photo. I also love miss Vanderbilt and was surprised when I found out the gray fox himself was her son. I love them both!
