Madame Tussauds Announces TWO Sofia Vergara Wax Figures Will Be Unveiled!
Sofia Vergara to be Immortalized in Wax for Madame Tussauds New York and Las Vegas
Madame Tussauds New York and Madame Tussauds Las Vegas announced that Colombian Emmy nominated actress and model Sofia Vergara will be the next personality to be immortalized in wax, not once, but twice, at the famed attraction on Tuesday, June 4.
The two new wax figures will be unveiled at Madame Tussauds New York and then individually displayed – one at Madame Tussauds New York and one at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas.
“We are very excited about Sofia Vergara’s arrival at Madame Tussauds,” said Janine DiGioacchino, Divisional Director, Midway USA. “She has become one of the most recognized and popular talents in the world and we know her fans and our visitors will love her figures.”
Vergara was an enthusiastic participant in the creation of her original wax figures, spending time with a team of Madame Tussauds studio artists who took precise measurements and photos of the actress to ensure the figures fully captured her style, exact eye color, posture, and signature hair. The artists spent four months creating the final figures. To complete Vergara’s stunning looks, Vergara also generously donated outfits for both of her figures to wear. Vergara’s New York figure will don a silver embroidered illusion column dress with a pleated tulled bodice by Marchesa which she wore to the 2012 Met Gala. Styled as Gloria Delgado-Pritchett, Vergara’s Las Vegas figure will be dressed in a leopard print and black figure-hugging dress which she wore for the Season 3 promo photos for Modern Family.
The Modern Family star will join the likes of President Barack Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Angelina Jolie, Whitney Houston and Madonna – all whom have wax figures at Madame Tussauds New York and Madame Tussauds Las Vegas.
