Gabrielle Ray

'Gabrielle Ray said, 'I am always dancing; I love it! When I don't dance, I sing. What else is there to do?'

Dresses in The Orchid – Daily Telegraph & Courier (London) – Tuesday 27th October 1903

Dresses in “The Orchid”

 Miss Gabrielle Ray wears in the first act a grey sun pleated dress, finished with a wide ruche round the hem, and a deep early Victorian cape of Trish lace, almost to the waist. Her wide-brimmed hat is of gauged chiffon. Later she wears a charming turquoise-blue costume, in somewhat of the old style of ballet-skirt, but more graceful in that layer after layer of the ethereal yet soft fabric is edged with undulating masses of ruching. The bodice is cut low, and there are trellis sleeves of blue velvet, into which pink-fringed daisies are tied. A band of trellis and daisies falls on the skirt below the waist. The hat is basket shaped, and of daisies embedded in soft blue chiffon, closely gauged, the brim lined in front with chiffon of a paler shade. Again, Miss Ray wears a dancing dress all in red, with effective touches of black.
