Clearly, Kate Middleton is far too fashionable for her likeness at multiple locations of Madame Tussauds Wax Museum to wear the same dress. So the purveyors of fine wax replicas are creating four different Middletons, each wearing a different look. At the flagship London branch, Middleton’s wax doppelganger will wear the navy blue Issa dress that she donned while announcing her engagement to Prince William. The sculpture will of course feature her engagement ring, though perhaps in a smaller size.
In New York, Middleton’s wax figure will wear the dazzling white Alexander McQueen dress that she rocked at last year’s BAFTA gala. In Blackpool, England, faux Kate will sport that pretty velvet Jenny Packham number that she wore at a gala in London last summer. And in Amsterdam, her sculpture will get the gorgeous black lace Alice Temperley dress that Middleton put on the night before her 30th birthday, to wear to the premiere of Steven Spielberg’s “War Horse.”
All four wax sculptures will make their debut in April, to celebrate the year anniversary of the royal wedding.
“It is the first time that we have had a member of the royal family make their debut in multiple locations,” a rep for Madame Tussauds tells People. “All four designers have been involved in making the dresses and the Duke and Duchess have kept informed at every stage of the creation process.”
Each wax figure costs approximately $236,910 to make. And yet, I want one for my front lawn. Preferably, the one wearing that white McQueen get-up.
