'The Finest Fashion Creation on the London Stage.
'Miss Teddie Gerard, wearing a costume that has created a furore in London. Its lavishness and beauty has been the topic of much conversation by all who have witnesses the stage production A to Z, in which Miss Gerard appears. The gown is of gold cloth, decorated with pearls and diamonds, while the head-dress has long ear-rings set with diamonds that reach to the shoulders. This costume alone costs more than the agregated cost of the costumes of an entire chorus.'
(uncredited press caption, USA, 5 February 1922)
'Teddy [sic] Gerard, Famous Actress, Whose Back Vies in Contour and symmetry with the Reigning Favorite Backs of the London Stage.
'. . . Delysia's back, it is said, figures all the way through the book from which her play was adapted. Teddie Gerard is another owner of a bewitchingly fashioned spine and she is exhibiting it to best advantage at the prince of Wales Theatre. . . .'
