Celebrating Riley Keough’s most iconic style moments

Riley Keough has a very rock and roll path to follow as the granddaughter of the king of the genre, Elvis Presley. Although her grandfather died 12 years before her birth, she embodies his magnetism with her flowing red hair, “nope,” tattoo stamped to her wrist and a devil-may-care attitude. 

This is not the only reference that comes to mind when we think of her aesthetic. She harnesses a classic, old Hollywood-like quality, even being compared to the likes of Marilyn Monroe for her iconic emergence from the pool in that scene from the neo-noir Under the Silver Lake and "calming, ancient wisdom". Her latest role in Zola paints an entirely other reference, but that’s a testament to Keough’s artistry. The Munroe comparison is not a surprise seeing as both her mother, Lisa Marie Presley and grandmother Priscilla Presley are women who captivated screens and audiences alike with their ambience and star power. This is not to say that Keough’s reverence is all chalked up to good genes and nepotism. She’s been working.

Keough has long been a fashion muse. She walked her first fashion show for Dolce & Gabbana at 15 as well as being the face of Dior’s Miss Dior Cherie fragrance around that time. She quickly shed this for more cinematic ambitions. You can't take the style out of the girl though, which is evident in her style moments below.

She dabbled in the rock and roll path a little longer in her first on acting role at 20, portraying the band member and sister Marie Currie, to Cherie Currie played by Dakota Fanning in the Joan Jett biopic The Runaways.

More recently, she has appeared in a slew of A24 films including; Under the Silver Lake alongside Andrew Garfield, and American Honey as well as the black comedy crime film based on a viral Twitter thread, Zola alongside Succession's Nicholas Braun.

Her other iconic titles include The Girlfriend Experience which she won a golden globe for her part in.

Without further ado, let's jump into Riley Keough's best looks.
