NEW YORK — It wouldn’t be the first time Kim Kardashian and Miley Cyrus were in a room together, but it certainly marks the first time their wax figures will be. On Thursday (July 1) at Madame Tussauds in Times Square, the reality star unveiled the latest wax figure by the famed museum. And this one was of herself.
For someone who is photographed as often as Kardashian, she is still reeling at the thought of standing next to an exact replica of herself. “When I first heard I was going to be immortalized, I was so honored,” she told MTV News at the unveiling event. “I mean, it’s a pretty cool thing. I called my sisters right away, and it looks so much like me, it’s scary. It’s probably one of the biggest honors, so [my sisters] were so excited for me.”
So, how does Kardashian think the statue turned out? “It is weird! It’s like she’s prettier than I am. It’s so weird, like, my arms and the hands … everything about it is so exact that it’s weird to see yourself,” she laughed. “So now I can really see from an outsider’s point of view. It’s weird.”
It really had us wondering what she would think of herself if she saw herself walking down the street. “I’d say she’s pretty hot!” she joked. “I’m just kidding. She has better hair than I do.”
To add to the uncanny similarities between herself and her wax figure, Kardashian wore the same exact hot pink Herve Leger bandage dress the statue is wearing. “Well I wanted something that would represent my style, something tight and sexy and fun and flirty,” she explained, adding that there’s even a star or two she — or rather her statue — would like to be standing near. “There’s so many amazing, iconic people. Jennifer Lopez would be fun. Michael Jackson would be amazing.”
