Dannii Minogue arrives at Madame Tussauds Sydney
Madame Tussauds Sydney unveils first ever side-by-side wax figure with Dannii Minogue
Australia’s much loved TV personality, author and fashion designer, Dannii Minogue was introduced to her double in Australia’s first ever side-by-side wax figure reveal.
Dannii is most recently known for her judging and mentoring roles on Australia’s number one show, Australia’s Got Talent and X Factor UK.
Dannii said “I am so appreciative of the many hours of hand-crafted work that has gone into my figure. This is real artistry. I’m just astounded by the accuracy, fine detail and remarkable likeness.
"This is such an incredible experience for me as it was a moment in time that holds such special memories when Kris and I had just announced my pregnancy. I can’t wait for my family, friends and everyone to come to the Sydney attraction and see ‘me’ up close.
"Be careful what you wish for – I think back to all the times I’ve been busy and needed to be in two places at once – wow, now it’s true!”
It took over 800 hours and 60 of Madame Tussauds’ most talented sculptors and artists to handcraft Dannii’s wax figure.
Using techniques perfected over the 250 year tradition of Madame Tussauds, quite literally hundreds of Dannii’s measurements were meticulously taken, including the width of her eyes, the length of her fingers and breadth of her face, with each individual hair – including the eyebrows – inserted strand-by-strand.
Adorning the same outfit Dannii wore when she had momentously just announced her pregnancy at the National Television Awards in the UK in 2010; Dannii’s wax figure is dressed in a full skirted vintage black and white prom dress with towering scarlet red shoes.
“To see Dannii’s reaction as she saw herself in wax for the first time was absolutely priceless and now I just can’t wait for the reaction of her fans” said Kristy Enright, Madame Tussauds Sydney spokesperson.
“It really goes to show the value of investment from Dannii herself to the painstaking hours invested by our sculptors. We’re thrilled to be able to announce that such a renowned and iconic personality will be joining our star studded line up at Madame Tussauds Sydney.”
