Priscilla Presley's most iconic looks throughout her decades in the public eye
Priscilla Presley married Elvis Presley in Las Vegas on May 1, 1967.
Throughout her decades in the public eye, she has been lauded as a style icon.
Presley recently told Vogue that she and Elvis loved to get dressed up for each other.
Priscilla Presley was photographed at the Memphis International Airport in 1963 wearing a dress and matching cape with leather gloves.
"People back in the day dressed up, and I mean really dressed up, because being on an airplane and flying was quite the thing," Presley told Vogue for their "Life in Looks" series in June 2022. "You never saw anyone undressed ... I loved capes at that time. I still love capes."
Presley also told Vogue that the dog she was carrying was a poodle named Honey that Elvis had gifted to her at Christmas in 1962.
For her wedding day on May 1, 1967, Priscilla Presley wore a trapeze-style dress with sheer sleeves and a large, flowing veil.
Shopping for the wedding dress involved going into bridal boutiques dressed in sunglasses and accompanied by musician and friend Charlie Hodge, who she pretended was her fiancé.
"I found this dress there. And it was something that I liked because it was very feminine, very lightweight, not too heavy, and it matched very well with Elvis's suit," she told Vogue. "Those were great days."
After the birth of their daughter Lisa Marie in 1968, Priscilla Presley was photographed wearing a bright fuchsia dress she bought at Neiman Marcus.
The dress hit right above her knees and featured a pointed collar and long sleeves. The dress was actually replicated for Baz Luhrmann's "Elvis" movie released in June 2022.
After their divorce was finalized in 1973, Priscilla Presley was photographed leaving a Santa Monica courtroom with her ex-husband while wearing a patchwork-style dress.
Long gone were the days of her signature black bouffant hairstyle, which she told Vogue could take upwards of an hour to create.
In the '70s, Priscilla Presley opened a clothing store called Bis & Beau in Beverly Hills.
Here, she was photographed wearing a denim ensemble from the store. Everything from the wide-leg jeans to her jacket and matching tie was hand-studded with rhinestones.
"I look back and I go wow, we were kind of ahead of our time on this," she told Vogue.
Presley was photographed by the swimming pool at her Beverly Hills home on April 9, 1975, wearing a denim bikini with floral appliques.
She paired the bold look with a simple gold chain around her waist and blown-out, highlighted hair.
While out in Los Angeles in 1978 with Elie Ezerser, Priscilla Presley was spotted wearing a white tuxedo and a matching golf hat.
The pair reportedly dated for about a year, but Presley never remarriedafter she divorced from Elvis in 1973 and he passed away on August 16, 1977.
In October 1984, Presley wore a red dress adorned with gold sequins to a charity ball.
Around this time, Presley began dating Marco Garibaldi, a former screenwriter and director. Presley and Garibaldi were together from 1984 until 2006 and share a son together, Navarone Garibaldi.
Priscilla Presley owned classic '90s style in a black leather jacket, sunglasses, and black hat.
She paired the undercover look with a printed black skirt and vest.
Her son, Navarone Garibaldi, can be seen standing behind her as they walk through the Los Angeles International Airport on May 13, 1990.
Priscilla Presley attended the 2022 Met Gala alongside Baz Luhrmann and the stars of "Elvis" in a Prada outfit.
The floor-length gown featured boning on the bodice and gold sequin cuffs on the sleeves. Presley wore matching gold sequined shoes and a thick black headband.
During a photo call for "Elvis" during the 75th annual Cannes Film Festival in May 2022, Presley wore a gold-and-black printed shirt and sleek black trousers.
She paired the chic look with a pair of black leather shoes and her signature coiffed red hair.
She wore a burgundy-colored Prada dress with sequin embellishments to the Cannes premiere of "Elvis."
"I liked this dress because it kind of matched the color of my hair," she told Vogue. "I'm usually dressed in black, so this was different for me, but I love it. And I got to keep it too, so I'm really happy."
In early 2023, Presley attended an event wearing an all-black outfit that featured large sequins.
The event, held at The Vineyard in Orlando, marked the last time Presley was seen in public before the death of her daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, on January 12, 2023.
