Dress Like Elvis and Priscilla Presley

Elvis and Priscilla Presley Couple Costume


Elvis Presley and Priscilla Presley caused a stir with their 10-year age difference, that didn't stop them from becoming one of, if not the most iconic couple Hollywood has ever seen.

In 1959, Elvis and Priscilla first crossed paths at a party in West Germany, where both the musician and Priscilla's stepfather, US Air Force officer Paul Beaulieu, were stationed. Of course, most would assume that when two people meet and get together at a party, it's not a problem. That's pretty scandalous though, because back then, Elvis was 24 and Priscilla was only 14.

Although the two were in love, Priscilla's parents forbade her from ever seeing Elvis again. When Priscilla came home from the party late at night, they didn't like Elvis very much. Despite this, he eventually won over his future in-laws. The couple continued to spend time together until the "Jailhouse Rock" singer left Germany in March 1960.

Despite being on different continents, Elvis and Priscilla managed to keep in touch for two years. Finally, in 1962, Priscilla's parents allowed her to visit Elvis in Los Angeles on the condition that she be supervised and write to them every day.

According to Pop Sugar, Elvis ignored her parents' binding rules. When Priscilla arrived, he took her to Las Vegas and "steered her onto drugs" so she could keep up with his lifestyle.

In 1963, Priscilla's parents officially allowed her to move to Memphis to be with Elvis. Once again, her parents set some ground rules: Priscilla would attend an all-girls Catholic high school nearby, live with Elvis' parents in a separate house until she graduated, and Elvis would eventually marry Priscilla.

Again Priscilla and Elvis didn't stick to the agreement. She gradually moved in with the rock star and made the Graceland mansion her permanent home after Elvis promised her parents that he would marry Priscilla.

After settling in, Elvis went to Hollywood for more movies, leaving Priscilla in Memphis. Pop Sugar states that Elvis had various affairs with female co-stars "which he dismissed as mere gossip".

In late 1966, Elvis officially proposed to Priscilla. Multiple reports suggest he did so because Priscilla "threatened to speak to the press and her stepfather threatened to charge Elvis with sex crimes against a minor," per Pop Sugar.

On May 1, 1967, Elvis and Priscilla were married at the Aladdin Hotel in Las Vegas. Vogue reports that very few guests were in attendance, with a press conference and champagne breakfast following the private ceremony.

The newlyweds soon boarded a private jet and enjoyed a brief honeymoon in Palm Springs before returning to Memphis, where Priscilla quickly discovered she was pregnant with their first child.

Just nine months after officially tying the knot, on February 1, 1968, Elvis and Priscilla Presley welcomed their first and only child, Lisa Marie Presley. Regarding the morning of her daughter's birth, Priscilla said it was incredibly stressful.

In the book Elvis by the Presleys: Intimate Stories From Priscilla Presley, Lisa Marie Presley, and Other Family Members, Priscilla revealed that her waters broke early, but it took Elvis a long time to get out of bed.

"Elvis moves around the house in slow motion as I cross my legs," Priscilla said via Classic Country Music. "He finally finds his cigars, but now he's lounging in the kitchen eating something. Elvis acts like we have all the time in the world.”

The King of Rock and Roll then drove to the wrong hospital, believing they should check in at the Methodist Hospital. Luckily everything turned out well and Priscilla gave birth in the afternoon.

Eventually, Elvis and Priscilla's marriage began to crumble. Throughout their six-year marriage, Elvis continued to tour extensively and frequently cheated on Priscilla with several co-stars. Down the line, Priscilla also had an affair with her martial arts instructor, Mike Stone.

In February 1972, Elvis and Priscilla officially separated and filed for divorce just months later. Their divorce was finalized on October 9, 1973. The former couple remained on good terms until Elvis' sudden death in 1977.
