There was a FOX network special in the US on Sunday that featured Rock Fashion. Elvis was shown performing "Hound Dog" on the September 9, 1956 Ed Sullivan Show. The announcer stated how Elvis had revolutionized rock fashions with his "peg slacks, sideburns, hillbilly pompadour". The Elvis segment was shown last so it was regarded as the most important revolution in rock fashion.
And it was back to the 1960s at Milan fashion week on Tuesday as Pucci returned to its hippie roots and Dolce & Gabbana got the catwalk all shook up with an Elvis-inspired show.
D&G used Elvis Presley's granddaughter as one of their models last season and while she was absent from the spring/summer 2005 show, the King himself stared out from cropped gray T-shirts.
The design duo joined Elvis on the set of his 1961 film "Blue Hawaii," wrapping models in bright red Hawaiian prints and stamping tropical flowers and birds on their trademark denim.
