Synopsis by Sarah Ing

"The fame you earn has a different taste than the fame that is forced upon you." Heiress Gloria Vanderbilt spoke knowingly of her own life and the attention that often befell her. Her status as American royalty guaranteed a public spotlight, but it was her own deeds of which she was most proud. Lifetime reviews her history in Women of Substance: Gloria Vanderbilt. When designer Warren Hirsh went looking for a well-known face to advertise his jeans, he came across Vanderbilt. The creation of tight-fitted denim pants with her golden signature heralded the beginning of the socialite's fashion career.
