Girl Crush: Priscilla Presley

I admit it. I have had girl crushes for as long as I can remember.

No, not ones that make me question my sexual identity. But the kind of girl crush where I admire a famous girl's style, look, hair, clothes, etc. etc. etc. It started at a young age with wanting to emulate Barbie (original, I know) and the most current girl crush I have is Lauren Conrad (I seriously love her style) and trust me, there have been thousands inbetween those two.

However, one of my girl crushes as of late is an oldie-but-a-goodie: Priscilla Presley.

I just recently discovered her look in the 50's and 60's and I gotta say... whoa Mama, I want to look like her! I love her long Auburn/Brunette hair, her heavy eye makeup and her completely retro-wonderful style.

With much adieu... Ms. Priscilla Presley:

Editor's Note: As of press time, Ms. Presley has continued to age with the help of extensive plastic surgery and Botox and now resembles an alien instead of the beautiful, older woman she could have been. For that reason, no pictures of her past 1980s will be used for this post.

Have a fabulous Tuesday beautifuls!

Mari said...

Kara said...

My goodness, she IS beautiful. But good call on no recent pics...YIKES. YIKES INDEED.

Elizabeth Marie said...

I had that first picture blown up...ever since I read Elvis & Me like 12 years ago lol

Cafe Fashionista said...

She is incredibly gorgeous. Have you seen her granddaughter - Riley, I think her name is? So beautiful!! :)

Dragonfly said...

So glad you didn't post any of her recent pics. I always loved her too, but now I think she has spoilt her looks!!! She still would have been a stunning 'older' lady.
Have a great day!! :-)

Slamdunk said...

Good post. It is a shame that people are not comfortable with themselves so that they can mature with grace and beauty.

Her role in the Naked Gun series was hilarious.

Tamanna A. Shaikh said...

Totally agree with you. She is drop dead gorgeous and sexy! Lovely post! :)

Hope Chella said...

Ha ha your editor's comment cracked me up...too bad after that point she had to ruin her face but she was a beauty!

Natalie Catherine said...

haha i love how you end that post...she was really gorgeous thats for sure. what a cute blog you have!! i gotta be a follower of you girl so i don't miss a post!!

Leah said...

I love your editor's comment Caitlin... she was a beauty but I guess the lure of the cosmetic industry became an addiction for her. I really like her during the old days, she had very innocent eyes even if she had heavy eye make-up.

Have a great day! xoxo

Mi Vida Bonita said...

What a doll! Love the photos!

Kristin said...

Oh dude. You're hilarious! She was a beauty!

Rhiannon Nicole said...

haha the editors note! love it. She was so so pretty, her hair and her eyes. Gorgeous!

the "L" spot said...

She was beautiful and i so agree with the alien thing.
BTW! I still have so many barbie things and wear Barbie t shirts now and then!!

Nahl said...

Oooh...nice discovery! She's gorgeous.

Johnny Utah said...

it is a shame when famous peeps freak out about aging and make it worse with botox/knife. it tells you beneath that dark makeup and pretty eyes was an insecure and scared person.

but yeah, good pick, she's gorgeous. if you like her look, check out katherine ross in the graduate.

Sir Thomas AKA (Winters Reaper) said...

I can see why...

*smiles*

carissa @ lowercase letters said...

madeleine said...

She is definitely a woman of classy. Love itt. Like someone said previously in a comment, she reminds me of Katherine Ross in the Graduate!

stay classy missy!

Lions, Tigers and Fashion OH MY! said...

I love them, she used to look like a doll!

Samantha said...

I have girl crushes too. Even on people who aren't famous. It's not a gay thing.

But you do have good taste! I love ladies from the 60s like Pattie Boyd and Jane Asher and Twiggy.

Claire Kiefer said...

She was definitely beautiful! I have to admit I'm kind of obsessed with people like her (and Jocelyn Wildenstein) who get excessive amounts of plastic surgery and end up looking like tragedies. Also: that quote from Elvis makes me so sad!

Wow, she was one gorgeous woman...thanks for sharing the beautiful memories of Priscilla.

Yours in Health, Robin

Julia, the Thanksgiving Girl said...

Oh Priscilla Presley is one pretty young thing indeed!! I like her earlier young looks too.

Nathalie said...

oh my, she really is absolutely adorable. Her hair looks impeccable. It is so sad that she could not just turn older naturally, she would still be a beautiful woman. Let's just keep her in mind with those pictures... so inspirational

Sher said...

I agree with your choice of the 50s & 60s Priscilla! She was so beautiful back then!

Now she's so plastic-y that it scares me!! Lol:P

Your editor's note cracks me up!!! She looks so weird now which is too bad because she used to be stunning when she was younger.

Walk The Sand said...
