When Priscilla Presley (née Beaulieu) met Elvis, it was an encounter that would completely change the trajectory of her life. Suddenly, she went from a 14-year-old living on an army base in Germany to the betrothed of one of the country’s biggest stars. Elvis and Priscilla’s relationship may not have lasted, ending in divorce in 1973, but Priscilla’s own impact on the world had only just begun. She became a woman about town in Los Angeles, opening a boutique of her own and eventually making her way into, first television, and eventually the silver screen, leaving a stylish legacy in her wake (just ask Lana Del Rey). Now, Priscilla’s relationship with Elvis is getting the Hollywood treatment thanks to Sofia Coppola, whose film Priscilla premieres in November. Ahead of that debut, we’re looking back at Priscilla’s life in pictures and her embrace of the heavily stylized decades she’s lived through.
