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?'

Gabrielle Ray – Peggy – The Tatler – Wednesday 15th March 1911


All the frocks in Peggy at the Gaiety are too utterly ravishingly delightful for anything, and the play is all one wants and looks for! A detachment of the S.P.C.A. would, I should think, have a field day there were it a punishable offence to wear more than £50 worth of aigrettes at one time, for the becoming ornament flourishes positively in bushes. Edna May’s “Ornamental Purity Brigade” also might get a look-in, for there is not, needless to say, a petticoat on the stage from start to finish, though there are some quite fascinating things in trouser skirts.

The new leading lady, charming Miss Phyllis Dare who has acquired I see yet another new motor of the latest torpedo shape – remains true, of course, to the “little girl” simplicity type, as also Olive May and Gabrielle Ray, both ravishing in muslin and embroidery and lace like very expensive babies, and looks perhaps her very best in a dainty frocklet in which sky blue, pale pink satin, and rosebuds play a prominent part under a white straw bonnet with pendant ribbons.
