Fashionistas everywhere have come to know Stevie Nicks as the quintessential bohemian fashion icon, but how she adopted that style may come as a surprise.
In a recent interview Stevie revealed:
"It was very conscious to have a look. I went out in 1973 with Fleetwood Mac and just went out and packed a suitcase with my street clothes. We stayed at very nice hotels and I immediately gained 10 lbs. I was horrified every single day trying to put together some kind of an acceptable outfit to wear on stage.
So when I got home from that tour I met with a designer and said I need a uniform, I need something that is fantastic that I can wear. I need two skirts, two leotards, two pairs of fantastic boots, a little English riding jacket [and] a long black chiffon scarf. I need like the Donna Karan’s seven pieces. And she made it."
Stevie added she's still coming up with stage costume ideas and is single handedly bringing back the Victorian ball gown.
You go girl!
