STYLE ICON: THE QUEEN OF ROCK N' ROLL

 When I think about my ultimate style icons, the first name that pops into my mind is Priscilla Presley. I've sort of mentioned before, but I have been obsessed with Elvis my whole life so naturally I was exposed to his leading lady as well. She is probably the biggest reason that I'm so obsessed with the sixties (along with Cher who we will revisit at another time). The hair, the eyelashes, the husband (the best accessory!). She was so daring in her fashion choices, which was totally acceptable for the time and I love all the pastels she sported. Her look has drastically changed several times through out her life, but she was at her best when she was with The King. Her style is the total definition of 60's/70's fashion and it's still being imitated today.

 Check out some of my very favorite looks from Mrs.Presley:

Unless otherwise stated, I found all of these amazing images over on LADYPRESLEY. If you're as obsessed with Priscilla and The King as I am, go follow her!

Who is your biggest style icon?

    1. Thank you! I think a lot of the time she gets forgotten about because Elvis was such a big deal, but she always looked amazing (Elvis would have it no other way)
      Thanks for stopping by! :)

    1. It reminds me a lot of what lady Gaga used to wear during her Fame days. It's one of my favorites too!
