Pop-Icon Katy Perry moves to Vienna Prater!
Katy Perry girls sought and found
Madame Tussauds Vienna together with the magazine "miss" recently ran a style contest in early April, which searched for the ultimate Katy Perry Girl.
The standard was extremely high but the ten best applicants were invited to present their creations in the Hollywood area of Madame Tussauds Vienna in front of a highly acclaimed jury.
Madame Tussauds Vienna Managing Director Arabella Kruschinski, "miss" Editor-in-Chief Julia Wagner and singer and actress Tini Kainrath judged the contestants and, after lengthy discussion, picked the 2 candidates who presented their style the best.
Those pair received the special honour of unveiling the new wax figure of Katy Perry.
Katy's figure is located in the Hollywood room of Madame Tussauds Vienna and has a special place on a stage next to George Clooney, Robbie Williams, Rihanna and many other international stars.
Madame Tussauds connects fans and stars
Katy Perry's wax figure is wearing a white sequined dress with red and purple lollipops. The superstar singer wore this in 2011 on her worldwide tour 'Californian Dream Girls', and the dress is based on the American candy "peppermint swirl".
"Katy Perry selected this dress personaly and specifically for the Viennese attraction which makes us particularly proud." said Arabella Kruschinski.
For this latest launch Madame Tussauds Vienna specifically wanted a fan to unveil the figure. "We get so much feedback and suggestions from our visitors, that it is only fair to also include them for this special launch." Kruschinski concluded.
