In Stevie Nicks’ song “Belle Fleur,” Stevie’s coarse and emotional voice sings:
“Mountain women, Live in the canyon,
Canyon dancing, All night long,
They form a circle, Hand in hand,
Are you with me, lady stranger?”
A ballad to women and a ballad to their strength and unity. In today’s society, with standards set by the media and the expectation to look a certain way or fulfill a certain "role", it can be difficult for women to see themselves in a true unadulterated light. This is what Belle Fleur’s purpose is; to recreate the image of women to something realistic... Something strong, radiant, and inspiring.
The subjects of Belle Fleur, are women who illustrate what it means to be a real woman, what it means to be strong, and what it means to love yourself. Real women are flawed and imperfect and that is absolutely beautiful and real. We often times find ourselves striving for the unrealistic, these are the women who ground us and inspire us to see ourselves in the radiant light that we all deserve.
Meaning “beautiful flower,” Belle Fleur is the culmination of beauty, strength, and inspiration that we hope everyone can turn to, feel inspired by and motivated to live their best lives and push through the boundaries that need to be passed through.
