Where is Dream Cazzaniga Now? We discuss the daughter of Donyale Luna and where she is now. 

Donyale Luna: Supermodel is a documentary that is available to watch on HBO. The documentary takes a look at this powerful, beautiful woman who made headlines for years.

Directed by Nailah Jefferson, the film establishes Luna’s achievements as the first Black model to appear both on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar (1965) and the British edition of Vogue magazine (1966).

It then delves into her personal life, her many affairs, and her daughter, Dream Cazzaniga, exploring her search to find out more about her mother.

Who is Dream Cazzaniga? 

Dream Cazzaniga is the daughter of American supermodel Peggy Ann Freeman, widely known as Donyale Luna. Donyale Luna married Luigi Cazzaniga and had a net worth of $8 million. Dream was the sole child of Luigi Cazzaniga and Donyale Luna when she was born in Tucson, Arizona, in 1977.

Dream Cazzaniga was a celebrity kid who has been in the limelight since birth but stays away from social media as much as she can. Primarily, she’s a dancer but does not share personal details and wealth online. 

Dream Cazzagina was just 18 months old when Luna died from a drug overdose at the age of 33.

Where is Dream Cazzaniga now?

It’s reported that professional dancer Dream resides in Paris with her family. Although Dream Cazzaniga is married, neither her husband (we assume they are married; there is no evidence online to suggest they are or are not) nor her children are publicly known. It is difficult to find out more about her life because she is not active on social media.

In 2019, she gave an interview with Vogue magazine, where she informed readers that she had a family at the time. Dream said, “I now live in Paris with a young family of my own, and even though I have only a few blurred memories of my mother, I feel her presence with me—and within me—more strongly every day.”

Perhaps being a mother herself is what has driven her to find out more about her mother in the documentary — a way for her to connect and feel closer to her. 

How did Dream Cazzaniga’s mother, Donyale Luna, die? 

Donyale Luna was one of the most renowned models and actresses of her time. She was also the first African-American model to appear on the front page of Vogue and is well-known for being a cover girl 11 times from 1965 to 1975.

She was the first black model who really began to change things in the industry to enable more diverse beauty paradigms to break through.

In addition, Luna has appeared in several movies, including Camp, Screen Test, Fellini Satyricon, Dillinger is Dead, and The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus. 

Tragically, Donyale Luna passed away in the early morning of May 17, 1979, in Rome, Italy. At the young age of 33, Luna succumbed to the devastating effects of a heroin overdose.

In a New York Times profile, she once confessed to taking LSD, and when she moved in with the actor Klaus Kinski, he threw her out for excessive drug-taking. So, inevitably, her relationships and work were affected. Luna was reportedly receiving treatment in a clinic for the addiction, but like many people in the spotlight, she lost her battle.

She was not with her partner at the time.
