The spirit of Memphis came to Milan on Wednesday, when the King's granddaughter made her catwalk debut.

Riley Keough, whose grandfather was Elvis Presley, was the first model to sashay down the runway at the D&G show. "When we met Riley we were immediately struck by her beauty and fresh pure spirit," said the designers Dolce and Gabbana. "It is a thrill for us to help launch her modelling career. With her mother's beauty and her grandfather's attitude she's sure to be a star."

The 14-year-old, who is the daughter of Lisa Marie Presley and musician Danny Keough, has recently signed to the same modelling agency that handles Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss. And she will no doubt benefit from her mother's extensive experience with the world of showbiz.

"She has big plans, she is making me a nervous wreck," joked Lisa Marie. "But she is grounded – she has a really good head on those shoulders… She wants to make her own money, which I completely respect and want her to do, but she is still my baby."
