"He molded me into his woman. I wore the clothes, hairstyle, and makeup of his careful choosing," Priscilla later said of her style in her early relationship with Elvis.
Priscilla later wrote of meeting Elvis, "I spotted Elvis immediately. He was handsomer than he appeared in films, younger and more vulnerable looking with his GI haircut. He was in civilian clothes, a bright red sweater and tan slacks, and he was sitting with one leg swung over the arm of a large overstuffed chair, with a cigar dangling from his lips."
"I dreaded this day very much because I didn’t know if I would ever see him again,” Priscilla later said of the moment. "One request that he asked was that I not be teary-eyed."
Priscilla later said of her early relationship with Elvis, "I found myself deeply involved with Elvis. Something in his Southern upbringing had taught him that the 'right' girl was to be saved for marriage. I was that girl. At the same time, he molded me into his woman. I wore the clothes, hairstyle, and makeup of his careful choosing,"
Priscilla actually had to go in disguise to find her wedding dress so she wouldn't be recognized, and later said of it, "It wasn’t extravagant, it wasn’t extreme — it was simple and, to me, beautiful."
After realizing she was in labor, Priscilla did actually take the time to fix her hair and makeup. She wrote of the labor itself in her memoir, "The man in the hospital room was the man I loved, and will always love. He didn’t have to try to be strong and decisive or sexy, he wasn’t afraid to show his warmth or vulnerability.”
"Living at Graceland was difficult but I knew when I got married that he was going to have his guys around all the time. I could not domesticate Elvis, and I accepted that. He didn't really have that much to do with the practical stuff but I took naturally to becoming a mother," Priscilla said in 2012 of Elvis's parenting.
