The Gold Dust Woman: Stevie Nicks

 “I was not going to be a stupid girl singer. I was going to be way more than that.”

Though she was part of Fleetwood Mac, the most complex romantic quadrangles the world has ever known, Stevie Nicks has never let anything interfere with her music. A beautiful, artsy blonde—part hippie, part goth, part Joplin-style rock-and-roller—Nicks penned two of Fleetwood Mac’s most famous songs, “Landslide“ and “Rhiannon,” then went on to have a righteous solo career belting out anthems like “Edge of Seventeen,” a song every 17 year old knew was about her (even though it was actually about John Lennon’s murder). Songstress, writer and lover of monochrome black, Stevie Nicks is our kind of woman forever taken by the wind.
