Power couple David and Victoria Beckham to get new wax figures!
2014 is barely five weeks old and already Brand Beckham is making its mark. Hot on the heels of Victoria and David's inclusion in Debrett's list of Britain's most influential people, we've announced plans to honour the couple with brand new wax figures in time for their 15th wedding anniversary in July!
We aren't able to disclose any specific details just yet, but we hope the couple will be involved in the styling of their figures, with plans for Victoria’s likeness to wear her own VB range, potentially even an outfit from her new AW14 line to be shown at New York Fashion Week on Sunday.
“We are very excited to be unveiling new figures of David and Victoria Beckham at Madame Tussauds London this year," commented our PR Manager, Nicole Fenner. “They are uniquely talented individuals who have succeeded in their respective fields to become true international icons. There is no doubt they both deserve their places at Madame Tussauds London - we are doubly delighted to be creating new figures of them as one of the most celebrated couples in the world. With so many achievements already under their belts, this year promises to see them add even more strings to their bows, with Victoria's fashion label going from strength-to-strength and David moving forward from his career as one of the most successful professional footballers of all time, to take up different challenges potentially even running his own club in the US. We’re looking forward to giving our guests the opportunity to get up close to their heroes here this summer," Nicole added.
The new figures will replace our existing ones, both created in 2004, and will feature in our Party area alongside fellow superstar couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, plus other British A-listers including Helen Mirren, Colin Firth and Kate Winslet.
