.. Sorry for not having posted it before
The incarnation of the new Miss Dior Chérie perfume is also the muse of the season. Lisa Marie Presley's daughter and grandchild of the "King", Riley Keough has everything of an aristocrat. A floating grace, a casual look, a queenly bearing...Encounter with the new fashion princess!
5 hours late. Riley is coming running after crossing Paris, from Montaigne Avenue to Mathis Bar, to promote the perfume's compaign of "Miss Dior Chérie". Riley Keough links up with photo sessions. Dressed in Dior, striped socks, platform shoes and blue jean jacket, she introduces herself shyly before rushing on the last Tiramisu of the buffet. She hasn't had the time to eat before.. Riley is only 15. A little delightful woman, in the public eye but protected. Sharp look, mysterious childhood. Elvis is in her. Grandaugther of the "King", she has all of the Presleys. The mouth and the chin of her grandfather Elvis, the blue eyes of her mum Lisa Marie. Nothing of her ex step father Michael Jackson, and it's a good thing. Her father, Danny Keough, isn't there at this moment but he is generally with her when she travels. We've been told...when we interview Riley Keough, we don't talk about Elvis, Lisa Marie, Priscilla, Michael and Nick Cage (the last husband of her mother). You act as if she had no family. OK? It's a deal. She's so cute that we think she'll maybe tell us something about her family? Niet. Nothing. We don't wanna try something she's well protected by her bodyguards. What to say of the little woman who skip school to pose for Nick Knight or to model for Galliano? Her rock 'n roll face, inherited from her ancestors, makes her hit the Dior perfume campaign. Miss Dior Cherie succedes to Miss Dior. When Riley works, her best friend and confident Jadan goes with her everywhere. She sits in the studio and writes notes in her notebook. What is she writing? Maybe one day she'll publish it and everything i wanted to know will be in it. That will be a best seller, for sure!
