The Inspiration Board: Happy Birthday, Elvis!

Today would have been Elvis Presley’s 75th birthday if he had lived. Fans are celebrating the day with museum exhibits, concerts, movie marathons, and even the Cirque du Soleil tribute “Viva ELVIS.” But The Frisky hasn’t forgotten that Elvis is known as much for his style as he is for his music, so we’re going to dress like The King for at least one day, and you can too. Find out how after the jump.
