Austin Butler has arrived! On May 2, the handsome actor made his Met Gala debut alongside Elvis Presley’s ex-wife, Priscilla Presley. Butler wore an all-black Prada tuxedo, which he paired with a sleek silver chain and a selection of crystal-covered pins and rings. For his first Met Gala, the dapper actor opted for swag in all-black with his dyed, messy hair. Butler posed for photos with Presley, who recently praised his performance in the Baz Luhrmann-directed “Elvis,” which premieres in theaters this summer.
In a recent social media post, Presley raved about Butler’s portrayal of her late ex-husband, calling him “outstanding.” She added, “WOW!!! Bravo to him. . . he knew he had big shoes to fill.” The two looked as fabulous as ever as they posed for photos on the stairs of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. They also spent time with Olivia DeJonge, who plays Priscilla Presley in the “Elvis” film.
Butler was working double duty during the red carpet, as he also hung out with girlfriend Kaia Gerber, who wore a stunning metallic Alexander McQueen gown with long, auburn curls. The couple confirmed their relationship in December 2021 and have been spotted together many times since, but their Met Gala appearance has got to be their most stylish yet.
