Stevie Nicks has officially released her own doll, and it was sold out within 24 hours.
Nicks’ powerful voice, which has been captivating audiences with Fleetwood Mac for decades and in her solo career as well, revealed Mattel’s Music Collector Series Barbie on social media.
In celebration of Nicks’ 2023 headlining concert, the doll is inspired by her look on the 1977 Fleetwood Mac album “Rumours”. It features a long, black dress with draped-sleeves and black shoes.
Mattel, which produces the dolls said that the dolls have Nicks’s trademark bangs and wear a pendant with a crescent moon. They also carry a tambourine that has flowing ribbons. This “bewitching” appearance is meant to emulate her “spellbinding” style.
“When Mattel asked me if I wanted a Barbie in the style of the cover for ‘Rumours,’ I was overwhelmed. Naturally, I asked myself if she would look like me. Will she have my spirit? Would she have my heart…'” Nicks wrote on X, the platform previously known as Twitter.
She continued, “When I look her in the eye, I see me at 27 years old — All my memories of walking on that big stage wearing those black boots and that gorgeous outfit come flooding back. And then I see myself in her face.” “We have experienced a lot together since 1975 – the struggles we’ve faced, the lessons that we have learned. I am her, and she is myself. “She has my heart.”
She expressed her gratitude to Mattel, describing Stevie Barbie as “so beautiful, so soulful, and so real. She means the world for me.”
Nicks’ Barbie was available for sale on Monday at $55, and it sold out before Tuesday.
Mattel released a statement saying that Stevie Nicks, as the lead singer of Fleetwood Mac, and as a critically-acclaimed, chart topping solo act, has been an inspiration to artists and audiences all over the world. This is especially true for women working in the rock and roller industry. Stevie Nicks, known for her signature style and captivating stage presence, has made an indelible mark on the music industry.
Nicks is the latest music icon to get their own Barbie doll, after stars like Elvis Presley and Elton John.
