Full Gallop—a one-woman play starring Ms. Cherie Gil—brought to life the iconic fashion editor Diana Vreeland as it launched last week with a press preview and the gala show. It was witty, very entertaining, and enriching all at the same time with Cherie giving a stellar portrayal. Thanks to the set design by Joey Mendoza which felt like we were actually in Diana’s Park Avenue apartment—vivid red walls, printed couches, and a variety of flowers that peppered her living room. The clothes of Rajo Laurel were reminiscent of Diana’s wardrobe—long free-flowing fabrics that flatter her body and make her look elongated—every inch a fashion icon, indeed.
Our favorite part was when Cherie, as Mrs. Vreeland, of course, would interact with the audience, moving flower vases around when it blocks your line of sight, and even having quick chats—it was definitely like having a conversation with Diane Vreeland, in her apartment, in this time and age!
