It was announced late last year that Kate Middleton would get the wax figure treatment via Madam Tussauds, but we didn’t know she’d get several of them. Then again, how could they have picked just one outfit??
Wax versions of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were unveiled today in London and Amsterdam. While the Prince’s outfits don’t show much variation, Middleton can be seen in two of her most memorable ensembles–the royal blue Issa wrap dress from her engagement photo (wax version pictured above) holds court in London while the black lace Temperley gown she wore to the War Horse premiere is on view in the Netherlands. If that bums you out because those are totally not the best Kate Middleton outfits, the Telegraph reports two more are in the works–one of which will be in the U.S.!
Here in New York, we get Kate immortalized in the lilac Alexander McQueen gown she wore to the BAFTAs. We’ll take it. Blackpool, a place in England that also has a Madame Tussauds, will get the pretty beaded Jenny Packham dress she wore to the ARK Gala Dinner at Kensington Palace last year.
All of those places will presumably also get statues of Prince William in which his ties will be different colors or something.
As usual, the wax figures are creepily accurate, and expensive–apparently each one cost £150,000, which means that four sets cost over £1 million or almost $1.6 million. Do you think Tussauds picked the best outfits? If not, which one would you like to see immortalized?
