I have to admit fashion is not one of my biggest card suit and I am not familiar with Diana Vreeland until I attended a forum about Being A Fashion Icon. The forum's target audience was the students of fashion schools but it provide me a background before watching Full Gallop, a biographical monologue about Diana Vreeland.
Full Gallop sets the story at Diana Vreeland's home after she was released from her duties as editor of Vogue. Cherie Gil plays the part of Diana Vreeland in this one-woman act. Monologues are one of the most challenging acts in a play. You just don't act the character but also visualize the story through actions. It will also require the maximum use of the stage and it will be really exhausting. The play is no different but Cherie Gil did more than what was expected and my hat's are off for her wonderful performance.
Full Gallop is on stage at Carlos P. Romulo theater in RCBC Building in Makati for a very limited time. Get the best seats for Full Gallop at TicketWorld. A must-watch for fashion enthusiasts. For more stage production reviews, visit and like the L.E.N.S. blogs on Facebook.
