Fashion designer Gloria Vanderbilt died Monday morning at age 95 of stomach cancer. Her son, CNN news anchor Anderson Cooper, revealed the news in an emotional on-air report.

Vanderbilt, heiress of the illustrious Vanderbilt family, carried around many titles: author, model and actress. But she was perhaps best known for her eponymous clothing line, especially the brand’s designer jeans.

In wake of her death, high-profile celebrities have mourned her death on social media.
