As Elvis Presley’s granddaughter, Riley Keough’s life was never going to be ordinary. Add to that the modelling career that began when she was 12 with Dolce Gabbana Fashion and a mere three years later has resulted in major Christian Dior fashion and perfume campaigns, and Keough’s life seems like one few of us could even imagine. But that’s not the way the 15yearold Riley tells it.. she spends more time studying, hanging out with her friends and living the life of an average teenager. Her everyday life, Riley says reads exactly the same way as all her friends with none of the trappings of glamorous extravagance. No elaborate beauty regime ("I like beauty treatments like most girls, but I'm not a slave to them"), no personal shopper ("no way! I love going shopping by myself, and with my friends"), no strict diet ("I try to eat healthy ... but I still love ice cream!") and no escape from schoolwork ("I get assigned work and keep up with my studies during shootings")
Danielle is her first name and Riley is her middle name, by which her family and friends call her. Despite her privileged status as the granddaughter of one of the most recognisable faces in the world – she is Lisa Marie Presley’s daughter with her first husband Danny Keough. Riley seems genuinely humbled by the good fortune that has landed her a successful career in one of the most cutthroat industries in the world before she has even left school. Riley has no idea why Dior chose her for their perfume campaigns, adding that working with John Galliano has been inspirational, exciting, and totally unexpected. "I could never have imagined this, I was so shocked when I got the phone call," Riley knows how lucky she is to work with Dior.
