ALL SHOOK UP: A traffic bottleneck prevented Priscilla Presley, her daughter, Lisa Marie, and granddaughter, Riley Keough, from gracing the front row at the Dolce & Gabbana show on Friday. Instead, the trio of Presley women watched the last bits of the presentation from backstage. Later that night, however, they made up for the lost photo op, joining Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana for the launch party of their new book, “Music.”

“They’re very rock ’n’ roll and I can still wear it,” said Priscilla, who met the designers for the first time that day. Lisa Marie belatedly thanked the designers for the way they had treated her daughter when she walked in their D&G show last February.

“They took such good care of her,” she cooed. Meanwhile, Riley said that it was back to school after the Milan trip, while mom Lisa Marie was preparing for the release of her second solo album in the spring. As for the Elvis T-shirts shown on D&G’s spring runway, the women said that they already had their orders in.

DRAMA MAJOR: Which designer known for pulse-pounding fashions just landed a movie deal?

No, it’s not Tom Ford, but Roberto Cavalli. Cavalli has teamed up with Dino De Laurentiis to produce a movie inspired by Boccaccio’s “Decameron.” The pair are investing between $20 million and $30 million.

“I’ve wanted to work in the movie business for years, but I don’t want to be considered a costume designer,” said Cavalli. He said he’s contemplating a 14th-century look, with clothes in soft, dusty colors. Shooting of the film, to be directed by David Leland in Tuscany, is slated to start in March.

Meanwhile, among the guests at Cavalli’s show on Saturday was Nicole Murphy, wife of actor Eddie Murphy. He stayed home with the five kids, while she enjoyed a fashion break in Milan. The statuesque former model took in the opening of the René Caovilla store — and Versace, too. “I’m having so much fun here I even lost my voice,” Nicole said hoarsely.
