Thirty-five years ago today, one of the greatest performers in history passed away. Elvis Presley, the King of Rock and Roll, will probably never know how much of a prominent figure he’s become. While he is no longer physically with us, his spirit continues to live on in music, movies, and, of course, fashion.
In fact, he plays such a huge influence in pop culture that you’re bound to see him at any costume party, and we guarantee you’ll bump into more than one Elvis every Halloween. Walk around in Las Vegas or Hollywood, and you’re sure to see impersonators
left and right. The question remains. What is it about this man that continues to attract so much attention? What is it about this man that makes women swoon and men want to be like him?
If you’ve seen any of his taped performances or interviews, you’ll know this guy’s got charm. Elvis was always full of charisma. With his mischievous smile, seductive voice and twinkling eyes, he got America to fall in love with him. And we’re still in love. Elvis Presley, here’s to you.
