Fleetwood Mac star Stevie Nicks has revealed that she's been working with toy company Mattel to produce a Barbie Doll in her likeness. 

Introducing the doll to the audience at New York's Madison Square Garden last night, Nicks said, "I have something very exciting to share with you a few hours before the rest of the world,” before going to to say that the manufacturer had approached her a year ago, well before the release of the enormously successful Barbie movie. 

“I was very overwhelmed," said Nicks, who has been accompanied by the Stevie Nicks doll for three months. "Will she be like me? Will she have my spirit? Will she have my heart?"

“When I look at her I see my 27 year old self,” the singer added. “I am her and she is me,” she said.

The news was confirmed by A Plastic Tan, an unofficial Barbie news account on Instagram, who shared a picture of the Stevie Nicks doll. The doll is now available to pre-order from Amazon in the US and will ship on November 10. 

"Stevie Nicks Barbie doll is ready to groove on a moonlit stage with her flowy blonde hair, full textured bangs, and smoky eye," read the sales blurb. "Her ethereal dress is inspired by the legendary 1977 album Rumours and features a velvety wrap bodice with a layered skirt that drapes and swirls like smoke.

"As in the hit song Rhiannon, Stevie looks ready to take to the sky like a bird in flight with her flowing chiffon statement sleeves. Stevie’s bewitching look is finished with her signature golden moon necklace, tall black boots, and a tambourine with cascading ribbons."

Stevie Nicks' next show is at the KeyBank Center in Buffalo, New York, on October 4. Full dates below.
