US artist and fashion icon Gloria Vanderbilt has died aged 95.

Axar.az reports citing foreign media.

She passed away at home with family members by her side, said her son Anderson Cooper, a CNN anchor, after suffering from stomach cancer.

Vanderbilt, known as the "poor little rich girl", was the great-great-granddaughter of Cornelius Vanderbilt, a 19th Century tycoon.

The socialite, who was married several times, made her name in the 1970s and '80s as a designer jeans pioneer.

"Gloria Vanderbilt was an extraordinary woman, who loved life, and lived it on her own terms," Mr Cooper said in a statement.

"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," the statement added.
