From her name, you'd never guess this Model of the Week is Elvis Presley's granddaughter. No, your eyes aren't deceiving you; model Riley Keough, born Danielle Riley Keough, is the daughter of Lisa Marie Presley and thus, the granddaughter of the late and great Elvis. But one look at the 18-year-old's features and you can quickly see the distinctive Presley genes at work.
Riley was only 15 when, along with her mother and grandmother, she graced the cover of Vogue. In February 2004, she made her runway debut for Dolce & Gabbana in Milan. Since then, Riley has appeared in ads for Christian Dior's Miss Dior Cherie Perfume and has also modeled for Victoria's Secret.

Welcome back to Model of the Week, where models dish about their beauty and fashion secrets! Meet Riley Keough. For those of you who are wondering why she looks so familiar, Riley, whose full name is Danielle Riley Keough, is the daughter of Lisa Marie Presley—which makes her granddaughter of the King and the former stepdaughter of Michael Jackson!
Riley was born on May 29, 1989 and was raised in Southern California where she developed a strong interest in fashion. She got her start modeling in a 2002 Tommy Hilfiger campaign, and in 2004 Annie Leibovitz took her photo with her famous mom and grandmother for the cover of Vogue. From there, it was off to Milan to walk the runway in Dolce and Gabbana's fall 2004 fashion show.
After that show, Keough's beautiful looks and strong work ethic helped make her a star. You might recognize her as a Victoria's Secret runway model, from her print ad campaigns for Christian Dior and David Yurman, or from her pictures in Vogue, Elle, Teen Vogue, L’Officiel and Jalouse.
One of Dior John Galliano's muses, Riley starred in the Dior designer's TV commercial for Miss Dior Cherie. Check out FabSugar's fashion interview with Riley. Also, to read about her beauty secrets, to watch the Dior commercial and to see a gallery,
BELLASUGAR: What is your secret to beautiful skin and hair?
RK: I try to never sleep with makeup on, and I put aloe vera on my face and in my hair every day. I don't wash my hair very often, and I never blow-dry it, so that it doesn't dry out. Actually, I don’t really do anything with my hair—I'm pretty lazy about it!
BELLA: What is the one product that you can't live without?
RK: Hair conditioner. My hair will start to dread if I don't use a handful because it's so curly and nuts.
BELLA: What is your guilty pleasure?
RK: I eat really healthy most of the time. I didn't eat sugar until I was 12 years old, but I eat loads of sugar now! I love ice cream and all desserts, unless they are fruity.
BELLA: What is your favorite drugstore product?
RK: Cocoa butter.
BELLA: Happiness is...
RK: Swimming in the ocean.
