You better start applying the lip gloss, Rob
There was a long discussion or two in the past that these shots were from 12-25-1957, based on the outfit, but eventually the general consensus was these were from late February - early March 1958.
My current feeling is they are from mid-March 1958, in Los Angeles, just before he left for Memphis on the evening of the 12th. See the photos below to note the very similar appearance in all of them.
Given his extra-spiffy tuxedo with cummerbund, and the preponderance of photos taken -- Elvis is clearly making an entrance -- this may be a movie premiere or some kind of Paramount function. It would be cool to find out once and for all what the heck this was!Elvis in tuxWith Kitty Dolan at Frank Senne's Moulin Rouge club in Los Angeles, Tuesday, March 11, 1958Elvis in tuxWith Dolores Hart and Valerie Allen at Paramount surprise farewell party, Wednesday, March 12, 1958
