Not many people can say their first baby photos were on the cover of People Magazine, but Riley Keough can. As the eldest granddaughter of Elvis and Priscilla Presley, Keough stands out in the Nepo Baby conversation.

A Chanel house ambassador, she has starred in numerous influential television shows (like Daisy Jones and the Six) and movies (such as Zola and Mad Max: Fury Road). Keough is undoubtedly a bona fide It Girl, and her latest look pays homage to the It Girls who came before her – most particularly, her grandmother…

Keough, the accomplished actress and granddaughter of Elvis Presley, has become a prominent figure in Hollywood not just for her talent but also for her ever-evolving sense of style. 

Keough first captivated audiences with her classic blonde hair, a nod to her iconic lineage. Her golden locks, often styled in soft waves or sleek straightened looks, exuded a timeless Hollywood glamour. This natural blonde hue became her signature look, perfectly complementing her striking blue eyes and porcelain skin. 

Never one to shy away from bold choices, Riley has experimented with a variety of hair colours over the years. From fiery red to rich brunette, she has shown that she can pull off any shade with confidence and style. 

And now, Riley’s latest hair transformation has fans reminded of her famous grandmother, Priscilla Presley…

On June 2, Keough posted photos on Instagram showcasing her look for a Hulu panel for her show Under The Bridge.

In the murder mystery miniseries, the 35-year-old actress plays a writer and stars alongside powerhouse Lily Gladstone. For the event, Keough drew inspiration from her grandmother, Priscilla Presley, debuting a fresh set of summer bangs.

Keough’s new hairstyle is classic yet relaxed, reflecting her unique spin on the bang trend. Her bangs aren’t blunt, nor are they as wispy as typical curtain bangs. Instead, they rest just above her eyebrows and feature a curl that frames her forehead.

Created by hairstylist Mark Townsend, the cut has a distinct ’60s vibe, reminiscent of Priscilla Presley’s iconic looks from that era.

The rest of Keough’s outfit was simple and minimalist. Styled by Jamie Mizrahi, she layered a white button-up shirt with a cropped red sweater. She paired these with sophisticated black pants and pumps, accessorised with a long necklace featuring a stone pendant.

Keough’s makeup was equally minimalistic. With the help of makeup artist Mai Quynh, she wore a rosy lipstick shade, soft brown eyeshadow, and black eyeliner that highlighted her green eyes. Her cheeks had a subtle pink blush, and a touch of bronzer accentuated her cheekbones.

Honoring her influential grandmother through her style is as iconic as it gets. Keough may have just sparked a new trend: Priscilla Presley bangs, which are definitely going on our summer mood board!
