Madame Tussauds Adding Selfie-Taking Kim Kardashian To Wax Museum
Beauty eventually fades, but a selfie-taking wax bust is forever.
Queen of selfies Kim Kardashian, who literally wrote the book on how to properly capture yourself in a snapshot, will soon find her legacy of pride totally immortalized, as Madame Tussauds has announced that Kim—who's already featured in the museum's catalog—will get an updated version added to the company's inventory.
"When we were thinking about how we should portray Kim here at Madame Tussauds London, it quickly became obvious it had to be taking a selfie,” the general manager of the company's London branch, Edward Fuller, told The Hollywood Reporter.
The site says that the artificial Kim, which will find "life" in July, will serve as an interactive exhibit that will invite fans to cozy up beside the figure and take a selfie with her. Still, to ensure the routine doesn't get bland, THR notes that a rotating backdrop will routinely switch out settings so that each pic is a bit different than the last.
The news comes a day after Madame Tussauds announced it would render a sculpture of actress and LGBT advocate Laverne Cox for the its San Francisco museum, making Cox the first transgender celebrity to find space within the attraction's walls.
