Style Inspiration: Stevie Nicks

Original bohemian Stevie Nicks has one of the most distinguishable female voices in the history of rock n roll. When we hear her sing of broken love, we feel her pain. Her tone is husky, vulnerable and coated in velvet. Stevie is a free spirit and her killer gypsy style is as earthy and natural as the woman herself.

As the last to join Fleetwood Mac, it might have been wise to assume the 'main parts' had already been fixed into place. However, the band had been missing a face, a heart, and a defining presence. After meeting Lindsey Buckingham during high school, the young lovers embarked on an unsuccessful plight as a musical duo. Soon after, a despairing Buckingham was asked to join Fleetwood Mac. He agreed with just one term; the invitation must also extend to girlfriend Stevie. The rest is history. Stevie sparkled as the pained lead singer, swirling and swaying romantically across the stage, shadowed in layers of silk and tasselled lace. With her long flowing hair, top hats, floral dresses and mysterious velvet hoods, Stevie was (and still is) the original hippy chick.

Solange Knowles for Madewell!

Move over Alexa, there's a new girl in town! Solange Knowles is the funkiest little sister around and the latest friend of Madewell. 2012 has been an extremely fashionable year for the youngest Knowles; she's emerged as a HUGE fashion hit. When your older sister is Beyonce, you'd think it would be hard to forge a path in your own right, not with this one! After dabbling in music, Solange has effortlessly rose as the one to watch in the style spotlight gaining praise from Editors and fashion insiders alike. We can't get enough of her bright prints and textures, wild hair, and bold statement accessories. Knowles is fittingly the latest Madewell muse after securing her first major contract with the hip US label.
