Headlining her own tour and now her own collectible figure, Stevie Nicks, the unmistakable and potent voice behind Fleetwood Mac's timeless hits, has been immortalized in Mattel's latest Music Collector Series Barbie doll.
Within a mere 24 hours of its release, the bewitching doll, draped in a recreation of Nicks’ iconic outfit from the legendary 1977 "Rumours" album cover, sold out, leaving fans and collectors in a frenetic scramble to secure the prized possession.
Unveiled to the public on social media platform X—formerly known as Twitter— the Barbie exquisitely mirrors Nicks’ enchanting style, adorned in a flowing black dress, graceful draped sleeves, and classic black shoes, echoing the spellbinding aura for which the singer is globally revered.
Notably, the Barbie also features Nicks’ signature bangs, a mystic moon pendant, and a tambourine embellished with free-flowing ribbons.
Nicks Embraces Miniature Reflection
In a heartfelt reflection, Nicks shared her emotional journey from the moment Mattel approached her to the revelation of the final product, expressing her initial hesitations, “Would she look like me? Would she have my spirit? Would she have my heart…” to ultimate satisfaction and emotional connection with the doll.
The music legend poignantly remarked, “I am her and she is me. She absolutely has my heart," acknowledging the amalgamation of memories, battles, and lessons since 1975 encapsulated within this charming miniature embodiment.
Retailing at $55, Stevie Nicks' Barbie, now a treasured rarity, was launched on Monday and by the dawn of Tuesday, was announced sold out. Mattel, paying homage to Nicks in a statement, acknowledged her monumental influence and inspiration, especially amongst women in the rock and roll industry, citing her “captivating stage presence and signature style” as leaving a lasting impact on the global music stage.
In a kaleidoscope of musical legacies translated into collector Barbies, Nicks, with her double induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, joins the illustrious ranks alongside musical stalwarts like Elvis Presley, Elton John, David Bowie, and Tina Turner, further cementing her indelible legacy within and beyond the music industry.
In a world where NFTs and collectibles dominate, Stevie Nicks’ Barbie has strummed a chord, not only with fans of classic rock but also among collectors and enthusiasts of timeless, tangible memorabilia, epitomizing the unbridled and enchanting spirit of a music legend.
