In mid-January, Richard "Mörtel" Lugner (91) revealed the secret about this year's star guest at the Vienna Opera Ball. US star and Elvis widow Priscilla Presley (78) will sit in the box with him. Shortly before the big annual event, the building contractor has now revealed what his prominent guest will be wearing on the occasion of the Vienna Opera Ball: glamorous designer clothing, of course, appropriate to the occasion.
It is now clear that Priscilla Presley will wear a gold dress by designer Nina Ricci as well as shoes by Balenciaga and a bag by Jimmy Choo, Lugner told Austrian media, according to the APA news agency. The ex-wife of Elvis Presley (1935-1977) will land in Vienna on Tuesday. Apart from the fact that she wanted to visit the Mozarthaus, he was not informed about his star guest's further plans, said the 91-year-old. A press conference followed by an autograph session will take place on Wednesday at 12 p.m.
"She was born in New York, in Brooklyn," Richard Lugner announced this year's Opera Ball star guest at the traditional press conference in Lugner City. She met her first husband, “a very well-known singer,” very early on and then married her. A film dedicated to Priscilla Presley is currently being shown in all cinemas in Vienna.
As "der Standard" reported in January, the actress followed up Lugner's message with a video greeting to those present. The former wife of Elvis Presley said that she was very happy about the invitation and the ball itself. Lugner's daughter Jacqueline (born 1993), from his fourth marriage to Christina "Mausi" Lugner (58), organized the embassy.
Last year, Lugner was accompanied by Hollywood actress Jane Fonda (86). The event took place as usual on Carnival Thursday for the first time after a two-year Corona break. This year it falls on February 8th.
