"You could be daring as a designer and put anything on Elvis and he could make it work. And the simplest outfits that didn't seem particularly remarkable on the rack transformed into something spectacular when Elvis put them on. He was that beautiful and powerful a presence.


Amazing truth spoken by Bill! Maybe he already met Elvis in Heavenly Robes now!! :D

Thanks for posting that, Sue. I think America owes Bill Belew a debt of gratitude for helping establish Elvis as an icon, with all those glorious, magnificent outfits. I'm sorry to hear he passed away.... but his legend definitely lives on.

And it IS so true what he said about Elvis looking good in anything. :)

I read from Larry Geller that Elvis got some ideas to his stage wear (especially the high collars!) from David Anrias' Book and portraits "Through the Eyes of the Masters"! So I think Bill Belew did his best to work out Elvis' ideas how it should look like!

(I will order the book, maybe I will be able to show the portraits soon!) :)
