  • Called the "trial of the century" by the press, the court proceedings were the subject of wide and sensational press coverage due to the wealth and prominence of the involved parties, and the scandalous evidence presented to support Whitney's claim that Gloria Morgan Vanderbilt was an unfit parent.As an adult in the 1970s, Vanderbilt launched a line of fashions, perfumes, and household goods bearing her name.
