Muse: Priscilla Presley

12.19.2012

From my early childhood I had watched every single Elvis movie that existed. I must of seen Elvis + Me a kzillion times, based on Priscilla Presley’s novel on their life together.  Not necessarily in the shadow of the King, Priscilla evolved into a Style Icon.  Born in Germany, Elvis found Priscilla as an innocent 16 year old.  Soon the young Priscilla was transformed into a sophisticated siren by the King’s side.  In the 60′s and 70′s you would find Priscilla in her hip hugging mini’s, adorned blouses, high hair and heavy smoked eyes. Today you can see a little bit of Priscilla Presley in starlets such as Amy Winehouse and Lana DelRay.  I hosted a Country themed Christmas Party, so it only seemed natural I would be Priscilla, the Queen of Graceland.
