Riley Keough says her look is usually casual, though she does love wearing pieces by Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior and Gucci.

Riley Keough is lapping up being part of the fashion world, but admits it’s still a bit unknown to her.

The American actress, granddaughter of Elvis Presley, has forged a name for herself in Hollywood thanks to roles in Mad Max: Fury Road and Magic Mike.

She’s also dipped her toes into the world of modelling, fronting campaigns for Christian Dior and walking for Dolce & Gabbana, though the 27-year-old doesn’t consider herself a fashion star.

“To be honest, I don’t even feel like I can legitimately call myself a model, since I only did one campaign," she told

"I always wanted to be in film, to go to film school, to direct. I’ve done more in the film world than I have in the fashion world. So fashion is more - I don’t want to say new and exciting, but certainly more unknown to me. But I love being able to go to shows now, and seeing what kinds of innovative ideas designers are coming up with."

During the last round of Fashion Week shows earlier in 2016, Riley sat front and centre at the Christian Dior, Coach and Michael Kors presentations.

Fashion infuses Riley’s life both on and off screen, with her role in recent TV series The Girlfriend Experience seeing her don a “corporate-sexy” look that the actress says isn’t her style at all. When it comes to high fashion though, she knows exactly what brands suit her.

"I love Louis Vuitton, I love Dior, and I’ve been really loving Gucci recently,” she listed. “I've been spending a lot of time in my hotel room in my Gucci slippers this weekend! But I’m pretty casual usually; I wear a lot of jeans and T-shirts."
