The hoopla has already begun. She may not have walked down the aisle yet, but Kim Kardashian‘s “Bride” wax figure is already standing proud at Madame Tussaud’s on Hollywood Boulevard. In a wedding dress that would probably make Vera Wang — who is designing the actual gown for the real Kim.K— balk. ThisÃ‚Â silk version with its 20-foot train was designed by Simin and is reportedly worth six figures.
Add to that the figure itself, which cost a cool $300,000 to make. It was spiffed up for the unveiling, which was handled by Perez Hilton yesterday. They also put a diamond and emerald necklace by La Velancia worth $1 million on the statue for the day. So you can do the math on what the whole shebang actually cost. Expensive, but no where near what the actual wedding itself is cashing in at, we’re betting.
Kim herself didn’t attend but tweeted Perez, writing, “This is the 1st I’m hearing bout this! Take a pic 4 me.” Kim quickly sent a follow-up tweet that read, “Excited I just heard fromÃ‚Â @PerezHiltonÃ‚Â that Madame Tussaud is unveiling a new wax figure in Hollywood! Now there’s 3 of us! 3some anyone LOL.” Stay tuned for the actual wedding this weekend. You know it’s going to be everywhere!
