In pictures: Elvis Presley’s most iconic style moments
The most highly anticipated film of the year so far, Elvis – starring Austin Butler and directed by Baz Luhrmann – is generating tons of Oscar buzz and putting the spotlight on one of the greatest entertainers of all time.
Born in Mississippi in 1935, Elvis Presley released his first single That’s All Right in 1954 and went on to become the second biggest-selling artist in history, bettered only by The Beatles.
Known as the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Presley was a triple threat: in addition to his wildly successful music career, he acted in 31 films and was famous for his provocative dance moves.
Adored by millions of fans, the showbiz star, who died in 1977, was a style icon to boot, and has been an inspiration to fashion fans for decades.
