Riley Keough is a descendant of the legendary singer Elvis Presley and bears a striking resemblance to the late music icon's former wife, Priscilla Presley.


There's no doubt that Riley has the Presley genes as she is the spitting image of her mother, Lisa Marie, and her grandmother, Priscilla. When Riley Keough walked into the Tribeca Film Festival in New York back in 2013, her looks became a hot topic of discussion among fans and followers, according to Daily Mail.

She was compared to Elvis Presley's former wife, Priscilla, and the online community observed a startling resemblance between the two women. Riley was pictured wearing a pair of yellow shorts and a white top with intricate lace patterns at the film festival.



She sported this look for the opening night of the film "Mistaken for Strangers," and her naturally red tresses reminded followers of the younger Priscilla.

She wore nude stilettos with little-to-no makeup to match her racy look, consisting of only accentuated eyelashes and a dash of lip gloss. On the second day of the fest, she sported a more dressed-down look, wearing a navy blue top with a mesh pattern and black cigarette pants.

During that time, Riley was focusing on promoting her work as an actress, and she was bagging exciting roles. She worked on a couple of projects, including a supporting role in "The Runaways," besides lead actress Kristen Stewart.



Following in her grandmother's footsteps as an actress has brought Riley recognition. In 2017, she was nominated for the Independent Spirit Awards for Best Supporting Female.

Although she did not take home the gold, Priscilla remains proud of her granddaughter and follows Riley's acting career. Previously, a source told Closer Weekly:

"I don't know if she or Lisa Marie have seen the final cut of her film, 'The Lodge,' but what they have seen, they're very proud of [...] They're all excited about it."



Apart from their shared love for acting, Priscilla and Riley also share a striking resemblance. They have similar features, such as their eye shape, nose, lips, and chin.

Priscilla used to flaunt jet black hair during her younger years but opted for a red shade as she aged, making her look more like Riley. Riley also looks like her mother and shares the same gorgeous volumized locks.

According to the actress, she remains close to her mother, who helped her thrive in the entertainment industry. With her last name, Riley often found new opportunities, and at times fac closed doors, but her mom stands by her through it all.



Before becoming an actress, Riley aspired to be a model walking the runway. She was only six years old when she saw her mother on the cover of Vogue magazine and hoped she would follow through.

At the age of 14, Riled made her runway debut as she walked for Dolce & Gabbana during an Italian fashion show. As of the present, Riley is married to Australian stuntman Ben Smith-Petersen.
