Kaia Gerber and Jacob Elordi have taken their relationship to the next level: the couples costume.

The model and the Euphoria actor, who were first linked following a series of quarantine strolls through N.Y.C. in early September, went all in with their coordinating Halloween costumes this year. Elordi, 23, and Gerber, 19, made their relationship Instagram official while dressed as one of the most iconic couples of the 20th century: Elvis and Priscilla Presley.

The pair went full ‘70s, recreating a photo of the Presleys with shocking precision: Elordi in a blue suit with an open collar, aviator-style glasses, a cigarette hanging from his mouth, and a stylized cane in his right hand; Gerber in a soft lilac-hued Charlotte Knowles blouse and dark purple pants from the same designer, her dark hair teased, eyes encircled with black liner and adorned with a lavender shadow.

Gerber enlisted makeup artist Sam Visser and hairstylist Charlie Le Mindu to help bring her vision to life.

Le Mindu told Vogue that they sought to add a through-line for both Elordi and Gerber’s looks. “For me, the most important thing was the match,” they explained. “I need to keep the sexy feeling, but not make it too extreme. It was easy, as they are such a beautiful couple anyway. But I married both their hairstyles with a shine, so it looked like both of them had a matching shimmer.”

The Presleys finalized their divorce soon after the photo in question was taken, so here’s hoping Elordi and Gerber share a happier fate.
