If you cannot attend a real Fashion Week, have no fear. Madame Tussauds has just debuted a special wax version of one of the hautest moments in fashion. The exclusive behind-the-scenes international fashion event in Madame Tussauds all-new multi-sensory experience stars Haute 100 lister Anna Wintour, Cara Delevingne and Kendall Jenner.
The site reads, “Grab the opportunity to ‘get runway ready’ with Kendall, whose amazingly lifelike figure is positioned ‘backstage,’ casually seated at a makeup table preparing for the catwalk. After checking out rails of some of the latest trends, you can sit beside her, surrounded by products from official London Fashion Week partners, Maybelline New York and TONI&GUY, with the smell of Lavazza coffee in the air.
After observing the true-to-life image of Jenner, visitors get an opportunity to spend time with Jenner’s supermodel friend Cara Delevingne. The 23-year-old supermodel is positioned at the end of the catwalk posing in a glistening Yves Saint Laurent dress, a wax version of the YSL gown was recreated by the French fashion house. Delevingne wore the dress to the Paper Towns movie premiere, which she starred in alongside Nat Wolff.
As you take your best sashay down the catwalk, make sure you do your best pose, as Wintour, famous for her pageboy haircut and oversized sunglasses, will be scrutinizing you.
Madame Tussauds has taken six months to develop and both Jenner and Delevingne have worked closely with the wax museum’s sculptors, giving sittings to sculptors to ensure the creation of stunningly accurate likeness. Around 20 artists worked on each figure and it took four weeks alone to create Delevingne’s trademark eyebrows with each hair inserted individually by hand.
This uber-cool experience is currently opening to the public for one week only, from Saturday, Feb. 13th to Sunday, Feb. 21. In addition, guests will have the chance to go home with a range of Maybelline New York, TONI&GUY and Lavazza goodies if they spot a special golden clothes tag.
