Priscilla Presley and daughter Lisa Marie Presley stunned fans on the red carpet in their coordinating black ensembles at the ribbon cutting for the "Graceland Presents ELVIS: The Exhibition, The Show, The Experience" at Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino. The ladies officially opened the tribute to Elvis Presley on April 23rd.

As Lisa Marie and mom Priscilla Presley walked the red carpet at the star-studded event, they wore classy ensembles--dresses that fell just above the knee. Priscilla Presley donned polka-dots with a black lace sleeve and black open-toe pumps. Lisa Marie Presley wore a tweet and black number with long sleeves and black cap-toe pumps.

Priscilla Presley was married to Elvis from 1967 to 1973. Lisa Marie is their only daughter.

A blue ribbon was snipped delicately by both ladies to signify the opening of "Graceland Presents ELVIS: The Exhibition, The Show, The Experience."

"Graceland Presents ELVIS" is located at the same hotel where Elvis Presley performed hundreds of shows during his tenure on the Las Vegas Strip. According to the exhibit's website, fans will be able to "experience Presley's entire life, from his boyhood in Mississippi to his Hollywood days, national tours, and more. They'll also be able to see hundreds of artifacts that have never been displayed outside of Presley's estate."

There is also a wedding chapel there, where fans of the King can tie the knot. Priscilla Presley has made it clear, however, that there will be no Elvis impersonators allowed.

If you're headed to Vegas in the near future, will you be checking out "Graceland Presents ELVIS: The Exhibition, The Show, The Experience?" Would you get married at a wedding chapel there or does that still seem a bit tacky?

Hopefully this venture is a huge success for Priscilla Presley and Lisa Marie Presley, who have both worked diligently to keep the memory of Elvis Presley alive.
