In the 1970s and 1980s, Stevie Nicks took a ton of selfies using a polaroid camera, a long cord, a button, and a tripod. Nicks says she took the photos late at night, while alone between the hours of midnight and 5 a.m.

"These pictures were taken long after everyone had gone to bed—I would begin after midnight... I stopped at sunrise, like a vampire. I did everything—I was the stylist, the makeup artist, the furniture mover, the lighting director. It was my joy. I was the model."

She stuffed the results in a shoebox and never thought anyone would see them.Last night, joined by a couple of her Fleetwood Mac bandmates, she attended an opening of 24 Karat Gold in New York City, a exhibition of these self portraits. But the Morrisson Hotel, who is hosting the exhibit, isn't leaving Los Angeles out. The show also opened here today (you have until 11 p.m. to head over), and will run through October 21st at the Morrison Hotel Gallery (at the Sunset Marquis Hotel, 1200 Alta Loma Road).
