Madame Tussauds Goes GaGa!
10 Dec 2010Madame Tussauds unveil their latest celebrity waxwork
All of the weeks of speculation about the brand new Lady Gaga figure at Madame Tussauds London ended at exactly 9.00am GMT when the world famous London attraction dramatically unveiled the international superstar wearing a outrageous show-stopping Philip Treacy telephone hat.
In what is possibly the most ambitious figure launch in Madame Tussauds history, London today joins seven other attractions (New York, Las Vegas, Hollywood, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Amsterdam, and Berlin) around the globe revealing the new Lady Gaga figures. Each tourist attraction has depicted the pop fashion icon in a totally different style and details about which city would get which outfit were kept a closely guarded secret until the moment they were revealed. London kept the suspense going until the very last second, teasing a specially invited audience of fans with projections of the eight possible styles before finally revealing the head turning telephone style figure.
The Lady GaGa figure is featured standing centre stage in the interactive music zone wearing the gigantic Philip Treacy telephone hat she sported on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross in March 2010, recreated especially for the London attraction by the world famous milliner. The unique headpiece is teamed with the custom-made Giorgio Armani Privé midnight blue outfit, and features a double-breasted jacket with wide lapels, pagoda-style shoulders, flared trousers and towering high heels.
As well as stepping up on stage with their heroine, guests to the attraction will be able to indulge in some additional interactive Gaga fun, posing alongside the figure in an array of outlandish Gaga style accessories, from the obligatory big shades to wigs.
