Kylie wax figure at Madame Tussauds
The newsreader for this short piece about Kylie’s new wax figure at Madame Tussauds refers to her by one of her many nicknames – Pop Princess.
Kylie has had four wax figures at Madame Tussauds in London. The inspiration for the scene of Kylie descending onto the stage on a crescent moon comes from her Showgirl tour from 2005.
The fact that only the Queen has had more figures devoted to them is a testament to Kylie’s phenomenal success, popularity and longevity.
The figure, made by wax artist Jim Kempton, was re-dressed in a Christmas-themed outfit in 2015. The first Kylie figure was unveiled in 1989 and replaced in 1998 and 2002.
The vision of Kylie spruiking her new fragrance Darling demonstrates Kylie's success on a global scale across a range of endeavours.
She has had a number of other products bearing her name including wine, Love Kylie lingerie and a homewares range.
