Kylie Jenner’s Side-by-Side Reveal with her New Wax Figure
Today, Kylie Jenner unveiled her wax double at Madame Tussauds Hollywood and struck a pose side-by-side with the new wax figure at the reveal. Kylie Jenner’s wax figure is dressed in the custom Balmain dress she wore to the 2016 Met Gala, which she personally donated to Madame Tussauds Hollywood.
Prior to the unveiling, Jenner gave her Snapchat followers a teaser first look at the behind-the-scenes process when she met with Madame Tussauds’ expert team of sculptors and artists who worked to capture her measurements and likeness, as well as select the perfect matching hair and eye color for her wax figure. The session lasted more than two hours and over 250 measurements were taken. The behind-the-scenes session with the Madame Tussauds artists and the reveal were both filmed for her E! new reality show Life of Kylie. The Madame Tussauds wax figure is valued at approximately $350,000.
