The Daily Mail’s Paris correspondent is informed that Mr. Eric Loder, son of Mr. Alfred Loder and nephew of Major Eustace Loder, has become engaged to Miss Gabrielle Ray the musical comedy actress. Mr. Loder, who is staying at the Hotel Murice, confirmed the news of his engagement. Miss Ray, when seen later, also smilingly confirmed the news, but said she would prefer to make no statement for publication. No date is yet fixed for the marriage. An enthusiastic Frenchman, writing in the Temps, described Miss Ray as the prettiest actress on the English stage and the most beautiful woman in the United Kingdom.

Gabrielle Ray – Bichara – Ritzol Preparations – The Daily Mirror – Wednesday 11th October 1911

MISS GABRIELLE RAY, the famous Gaiety actress, who writes of the Bichara and Ritzol Preparations: “I want to tell you that I think your preparations and perfumes are simply delightful, and that I use them with pleasure.”

Miss Gabrielle Ray’s enthusiasm is shared by leading English and French actresses everywhere. Miss Ellaline Terriss, Miss Irene Vanbrugh, Mrs. Patrick Campbell, Miss Constance Dreyer, Miss Ethel Irving, Miss Elsie Spain, Mlle. Gaby Deslys, Mlle. Polaire, Mlle. Sahary Djeli, and countless others vie with one another in praise of “the delightful Bichara-Ritzol Preparations,” and the reason of this is not far to seek.

It is because the Bichara-Ritzol preparations are, first and foremost, prepared by sound scientific methods; possessing an added daintiness that is essentially Parisian. The Bichara-Ritzol preparations afford a certain means of preserving and enhancing beauty. They are based on a profound knowledge of the skin and the phenomena of the complexion; they are eminently pure, and leading medical men speak in high praise of their hygienic properties. They promote beauty by scientific methods -methods already famous all over the Continent, where the cult of beauty is a recognised profession demanding thorough qualifications – which, until but lately, were unknown in this country.

Mme. Rai, the Manageress of the Bichara Institute, in Piccadilly, is just now making an offer which, throughout Europe, is without parallel in the history of beauty culture. Her experience has been long and comprehensive, and she is convinced that the only certain way of affording to all women a full realisation of the beneficient qualities of the Bichara-Ritzol Preparations is that they should make a personal trial. To this end she offers a complete outfit of the Bichara-Ritzol Preparations and Specialities, in sufficient quantity, for a week’s full treatment
