The King of Rock n’ Roll, Elvis Presley, would have turned 88-years-old on Sunday, January 8. In an honor of the Jailhouse Rock icon, Lisa Marie Presley and some of her family were joined by Elvis biopic actor Austin Butler and director and co-writer Baz Luhrmann for a pre-Golden Globe Awards party at the Formosa Café in West Hollywood.

Among the celebrities on hand for the party celebrating the late rock n’ roll legend were Addison Rae, who was seen later in the evening leaving with beau, and Israeli record producer and musician, Omer Fedi. Rae (born Addison Rae Easterling), 22, showed off her curves in a plunging pink halter dress that fell down to about mid-thigh in the front, but around her knees in the back. She added a pair of black heels and large hoops earrings to the ensemble.

Rounding out her overall look, the Lafayette, Louisiana native had her dark brown tresses styled long and flowing to about the middle of her back with a slight part on the left. Rae first gained recognition as a social media darling, who went on to amass 88 million followers on TikTok by the end of July 2022, making her the fourth most-followed individual on the platform.

She has since gone on to shift some of her focus to acting, which included starring in the lead role in He’s All That (2021), a gender-swapped remake of the 1999 film She’s All That. It turns out the historic Formosa Café restaurant, where the birthday celebration was held, was an old hangout of Presley’s back in the day. 

The Love Me Tender hitmaker’s only child, daughter Lisa Marie Presley, 54, was seen arriving at the event with Butler and Luhrmann, while daughter, actress Riley Keough, was joined by her husband Ben Smith-Petersen.

Some of the other celebrities on hand for the party included pop star Rita Ora and her boyfriend, Oscar-winning screenwriter Taika Waititi, eight-time Grammy winning singer-songwriter Beck, actor and Oscar-nominated producer Danny DeVito and his daughter Grace Fan DeVito, musician Finneas O’Connell, Kara Del Toro, among others.  

Butler and Luhrmann have established somewhat of a close relationship with the Presley-Keough family since the making of the biopic, which is up for three Golden Globes during the ceremony on Tuesday, January 10. The Elvis biopic, which focused largely on his relationship with manager Colonel Tom Parker, played by Tom Hanks, turned out to be a bonafide hit at the worldwide box office, grossing $287.3 million against a budget of $85 million.

Elvis was nominated for Best Motion Picture  Drama; Butler is up for Best Actor In A Motion Picture Drama; and Luhrmann got a nom for Best Director Motion Picture. Lisa Marie Presley, who’s the sole heir to her father’s estate, has been largely out of the pubic spotlight since her son Benjamin Storm Keough committed suicide, at age of 27, in 2020.
