In the glow of A24’s Priscilla, Australian actor Jacob Elordi steps into the iconic shoes of Elvis Presley. Known for his fashion sense in the contemporary sphere, Elordi trades in his modern threads for a wardrobe that recalls a bygone era, meticulously crafted by the house of Valentino under the creative direction of Pierpaolo Piccioli.

The film, directed by Sofia Coppola, is not just the captivating storyline that enthralls the audiences but also the sartorial splendor that Elordi brings to life. His transformation into the King of Rock’ n’ Roll is a metamorphosis of character and costume.

Valentino’s creations for Elordi nod to the timeless allure of meticulous tailoring. The brand, synonymous with luxury, opts for a palette of classic tones that frame the film in its historical context. Navy is a grounding neutral, a hue that conjures the era’s essence.

Elordi’s looks in the film are crowned by a custom three-piece suit, piecing together the legend of Elvis with Valentino’s craftsmanship. And yet, the brand understands the assignment well, knowing when to switch from formality to the understated elegance of smart-casual.

Perhaps the most intimate touch is the “Valentino for Jacob Elordi” tag, hand-sewn into the garments. It’s a signature that denotes exclusivity and personalization, a fusion of Elordi’s persona with Presley’s, all under the Valentino banner.

Jacob Elordi Covers GQ

As the star of Priscilla, Jacob Elordi captures the essence of an era and graces the cover of GQ’s December 2023/January 2024 Men of the Year issue. In an insightful dialogue with the magazine, Elordi delves into the complexities and excitement of portraying Elvis Presley, especially following Austin Butler’s critically acclaimed, Oscar-nominated portrayal of the cultural icon.

Elordi acknowledges the inevitable comparisons, stating, “It certainly crossed my mind briefly before I’d read the script. I don’t want to tell the same story over, especially because he did such a fine job of portraying this man.”

However, he distinguishes his performance, asserting, “It’s a completely different thing. And it’s terribly exciting, too, running into the fire a little bit. I can’t think of anything more exhilarating.”

In Priscilla, Elordi’s iteration of Elvis clothed in the bespoke elegance of Valentino, is a new chapter that pays homage to the King of Rock’ n’ Roll with subtlety and boldness. It’s an exhilarating leap into the flames of a character deeply etched into the world’s collective consciousness, now reimagined through Valentino’s timeless aesthetic and Coppola’s artistic vision.
