In the most ambitious figure launch in Madame Tussauds history, London today joins seven other attractions around the world revealing new Lady Gaga figures.
Each attraction has depicted the fashion icon in a totally different style and details about which city were getting which outfit were kept a closely guarded secret until the moment they were revealed. We kept the suspense going until the last second, teasing a specially invited audience of fans with projections of the eight possible styles before finally revealing the head turning telephone style figure.
The figure is featured in our interactive Music Zone. She wears the gigantic Philip Treacy telephone hat she sported on ;;Friday Night with Jonathan Ross;; in March 2010, recreated especially for us by the world famous milliner. The unique headpiece is teamed with an Armani coat, flared trousers and towering heels.
