Eagle-eyed fans noticed that Riley Keough paid tribute to her late grandfather, Elvis Presley, in Amazon’s adaptation of Taylor Jenkins Reid’s bestselling novel, “Daisy Jones & The Six.”
During the show’s second episode, the 33-year-old actress – who plays a rockstar in the late ’70s – wore a red-patterned guitar strap that looked strikingly similar to the one Presley wore during his ” ’68 Comeback Special”.
While it’s unclear if the unique strap was passed down to Keough or just a replica, fans rave producers for their “attention to detail”.
However, Keough recently revealed to Buzzfeed that she used her own guitar on the show, another indication that the strap may have belonged to the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll.
“I have a fun fact that Daisy’s guitar is my guitar,” she revealed. “It was my personal guitar and I wanted to use it in the show.”
The show’s costume designer, Denise Wingate, also told People that they hired a very special woman named Melody Sabatasso — aka Love Melody — to work on the project.
“She actually made two jumpsuits for Elvis Presley, so I asked her to make two beautiful long coats for the show,” she added.

According to Wingate, Melody made Keough one “long patchwork coat of denim leather” and the other in “beautiful rust leather”.
The team knew how important it was to “have a bit of that history” in the project, which led them to dress Keough in numerous fur coats and black clothes for his dark spiral.
Not only were secret homages to Elvis hidden in the musical show’s costume designs, but also to Stevie Nicks.
Reid said the romantic tension between Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham helped her pen the bestselling novel, leading Windgate to draw inspiration from the “Landslide” singer’s “Aurora” album cover.
“There was a dress that I saw a picture of Stevie Nicks in,” she told Page Six, describing a “white sheer chiffon” number that was “so beautiful and ethereal.”
While viewers unfortunately couldn’t see much of the dress, Keough’s final look on the show was inspired by the song “Gold Dust Woman.”
“Daisy Jones & The Six” is streaming now on Amazon Prime Video.
