Madame Tussauds Reveals First 'Selfie Taking' Figure As Kim Kardashian Joins The A-list Cast

Kim Kardashian wax figure - Madame Tussauds London today revealed the very first 'selfie taking' wax figure of the Queen of the craze herself, Kim Kardashian, dressed in one of her all-time favourite gowns, recreated in fine detail by Balmain Paris. Looking stunning, she wears the intricately embellished Balmain minidress - designed by Olivier Rousteing - that she made famous at her bachelorette party. Kim's likeness is portrayed in ultimate selfie pose - arm extended and mobile phone poised to capture that perfect picture. Guests were delighted to slide up beside her and strike their own poses this morning, pressing the button on the figure's mobile to capture their very own selfie with Kim. And thanks to an ever changing backdrop they all got a very different selfie moment - from apparently bumping into the star in front of the Eiffel Tower to hanging out at the local caravan park! "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," commented Nicole Fenner, PR Manager at the world famous attraction. "But we wanted to make it really special and create a set where guests can take a picture that will look as if they have just bumped into Kim in any number of locations. We are also paying a bit of a tribute to Kim's own '3 image rule', which dictates you should never take more than three images in the same location. A constantly changing backdrop ensures guests don't fall foul of that rule with hundreds of different selfie scenes to give people lots of picture perfect experiences," Nicole continued. The figure shows Kim at her flawless best with long hair parted in the centre, gently waved and showing off her famous curves to full effect in her show stopping jewelled batcherlorette party dress, kindly recreated bead-by-bead by Balmain Paris. The dress features thousands of individual beads and is inspired by the Faberge egg Richard Burton bought for Elizabeth Taylor.
