The Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll Style: Priscilla Presley back on the silver screen

The highly anticipated release of Sofia Coppola’s ‘Priscilla’ is fast approaching so it only seems appropriate to pay tribute to the icon herself and her timelessly elegant style through the years.

Priscilla Presley serves as an executive producer on ‘Priscilla’, a movie based on her own 1985 memoir ‘Elvis and Me’ adapted by Sofia Coppola. The movie follows Priscilla Presley and her tumultuous relationship with Rock ‘n’ Roll icon Elvis Presley, with Cailee Spaeny taking on the role of Priscilla and Jacob Elordi tackling the role of Elvis. Unlike last year’s ‘Elvis’ biopic from Baz Luhrmann this film will focus more on Priscilla’s story and the controversial age gap between her and Elvis as well as what it was like to grow up as a teenager in Graceland behind one of the biggest stars in the world.

Priscilla arguably has one of the most iconic lookbooks of all time with a collection of graceful, elegant looks spanning from the 1960s to the current day. From double denim to big hair and flicked eyeliner, which in more recent years has been emulated by the likes of Lana Del Rey, Priscilla’s style journey has certainly been one to remember. These are just some of her most iconic outfits:

For her extravagant wedding to Elvis in 1967, the dress Priscilla wore was certainly in keeping with the theme, a floor-length white gown covered in pearls and paired with a tiara and a white veil.

In 1967, following her wedding to Elvis and about to board Frank Sinatra’s jet for their honeymoon, Priscilla wore a little white dress with a black bow detail on the chest while holding onto a black clutch bag.

In 1968, despite still being in hospital after giving birth, in true Priscilla style, she can be seen above with her hair and makeup in full 60s fashion while donning a fuschia pink dress.

While attending a friend’s wedding in Las Vegas in 1970, Priscilla shifted from her 60s mod look, noticeably without her iconic eyeliner and blown-out hair and in a hooded turquoise button-up dress.

Priscilla was photographed alongside Elvis at their Beverly Hills home in late 1970 sporting a full purple look paired with a gold cross necklace and a light makeup look.

In more recent years, Priscilla attended the 2023 Met Gala in full Prada, a floor-length black gown with gold detailing on the arms, accompanied by a black clutch and a black headband.

Priscilla Presley has certainly cemented herself as an everlasting style icon with a catalogue of truly iconic looks.

    I have never seen Elvis Presley perform because he passed away when I was a young girl! I have however seen his daughter Lisa Marie Presley perform at the Ryman Auditorium and she was quite amazing to see in concert! I even got her autograph after the performance was over! So sad that the Presley name seems to be cursed! Elvis, Lisa Marie and her son have all passed away!
