Taylor Swift Gets Waxed
Taylor Swift is already a world-famous celebrity, and now she will be among the famous figures immortalized in the internationally-renowned wax museum, Madame Tussauds New York. Known for housing life-like replicas of today's biggest celebrities, the museum is celebrating a decade in the Big Apple.
"What better way to keep our ten-year anniversary celebration going than to unveil a figure of one of today's biggest superstars -- Taylor Swift," says Janine DiGioacchino, Divisional Director of Midway Attractions. "Taylor's amazing accomplishments as an artist, along with her generous spirit and sparkling personality, make her a wonderful new addition to the Madame Tussauds New York family. We are so excited to give her fans and our visitors a mini-preview of the completed figure before its big debut next week."
Taylor will be adorned in a black and silver dress, made by designer Jenny Packham and personally donated by Taylor. Her statue will be unveiled on October 27, two days after her 'Speak Now' release date. Check out a sneak peek of Taylor's waxed twin below, sent to The Boot by Madame Tussauds. You can see the sparkly Packham dress, though not the statue's face just yet.
Taylor joins fellow country superstar Carrie Underwood, as well as President Barack Obama, Bruce Springsteen, the late Princess Diana, Bono, Robert Pattinson and Madonna in having wax figures at the historic museum.
