Priscilla Presley Is A Showstopper In Graceful Black Outfit At Elvis' 85th Birthday Party

January 9, 2020

Wow, what a stunner! At 74 years old, Priscilla Presley is one beauty that knows how to grab our attention and frankly, we can't get enough. She recently showed up for her late husband Elvis' birthday commemoration and we have to applaud her fashion choice.

Forever in her memories

Even though Priscilla and her Elvis Presley got divorced four years before he passed away, it remains clear that she considers it a part of her purpose to keep his memories alive for as long as possible.

Clearly, the connection they shared wasn't severed even before his death. They remained friends even after their divorce and raised their daughter, Lisa Marie, together until he passed away.

The rockstar has been gone since 1977 but the passing time hasn't discouraged Priscilla from singing his praises and expressing her affection for him. She told TheGuardian in 2016:

I feel a responsibility for keeping his legacy alive. You’ll never see his sort of stardom again. He was so authentic and, in lots of ways, innocent. What you saw was what you got.

A stunner in black

Considering the strong link that Priscilla and Elvis shared, it wasn't a surprise that she showed up for him at an event that commemorated what would have been the famous singer's 85th birthday.

Elvis' birthday celebration took place at his Graceland mansion in Memphis and fans of the star's music from far and wide were there to honor his memory. According to LocalMemphis, the event will hold from January 8 to 11 and different celebratory aspects have been lined up to entertain guests.

For day 1 of the extravaganza, Priscilla went all out with her fashion choice. She was spotted wearing an all-black coat on top of a black blouse that featured a polka dot collar.

She also brightened things up by wearing a colorful scarf around her neck.

As for her makeup, she went with a classic red lipstick color which blended beautifully with her hair of a similar shade.

Overall, her look was graceful and really eye-catching. She had 'stunner' written all over her.

Grandkids absent

The first day of Elvis' birthday party seemed to go by without a hitch but a little bit of drama went on behind the scenes. According to reports, Priscilla's daughter, Lisa Marie, fought for her two young children (Elvis' grandchildren) to attend the event.

Why was it such a battle? As it turned out, Lisa has been in a pretty complicated divorce from her ex Michael Lockwood and he reportedly refused to allow the kids to travel to Tennessee for their late grandfather's birthday party. Without his permission, Lisa was unable to take her children across state lines.

Elvis Presley's birthday celebration is one that fans and loved ones look forward to every year. Due to his closeness to his ex-wife, Priscilla, it makes sense that she would consider this an important occasion to attend.

Sure, not having the singer's grandkids at the party might have put a damper on things. But Priscilla represented the family well and looked fantastic doing it. For a woman in her 70s, she absolutely nailed her appearance and she gets an A+ for that.
