Madame Tussauds goes Gaga
Lady Gaga is to be immortalised in eight Madame Tussauds across the globe in what will be the waxwork museums most ambitious figure launch to date.
The sculptures, which will be revealed on December 9, each depict Gaga in a different outfit, whilst the location of each statue is not to be revealed until launch day.
“As one of the biggest and most unique talents in the world, she is the perfect subject for the biggest figure launch in Madame Tussauds’ history,” read a statement by the waxworks, adding: “All of the styles being worked on are classic Gaga.”
The eight designs are: ‘Lady in Lace’, Alex Noble lace body stocking worn at The Brit Awards 2010; Telephone, the outfit worn on ‘Friday Night with Jonathon Ross’; Harlequin, from The Grand Intercontinental in Seoul; Kinky Boots, worn at the Hakkasan restaurant in London; Mini Mouse, from the BBC Radio studios; Hair Hat, worn at the Consumer Electronics Show in Vegas; Wired Wing Dress, from her appearance on the ‘Wetten Dass..?’ game show in Germany; and finally Big Hair, her towering purple hair piece as seen outside the Phoenix Hotel in Copenhagen.
Each figure takes about four months to complete at a cost of £150,000 ($244,000) and will be featured in one of Madame Tussauds attractions in London, Amsterdam, Berlin, New York, Hollywood, Las Vegas, Shanghai and Hong Kong, from December 9, 2010.
