Marilyn Monroe Next To Oscar

The icon of Hollywood of the 1950s is the newest wax figure to arrive at the Film Zone at Madame Tussauds Dubai.

Throughout the month of February, the attraction will be encouraging visitors to mention “diamonds are a girl’s best friend” on arrival to avail special discounts and take home goodies.

This February, Madame Tussauds Dubai, located on Bluewaters, will unveil its latest global figure joining the ever-growing list of glamorous celebrities - the wax figure of Marilyn Monroe. To celebrate the launch of the icon’s figure, which is just in time for the month of love with Valentine’s Day, Madame Tussauds is offering special discounts and offerings to visitors and tourists alike.

Marilyn Monroe’s figure is styled in the shimmering red sequin dress from the 1953 film ‘Gentlemen Prefer Blondes’. While her beauty look quickly evolved as her career took off, Marilyn Monroe continued to experiment with her hair and makeup, wearing her iconic curls in a variety of styles. She also proved the versatility of her glamorous look by wearing a full face of makeup for every occasion, from an on-screen appearance to a casual party at home. Her figure can be seen in her signature look: blonde curled hair, red lips and full lashes.

She joins the likes of Audrey Hepburn, Jennifer Lawrence and Tom Cruise in the Film Zone, one of the six themed areas of Madame Tussauds Dubai, the other zones being: Leaders & Royals, Fashion, Bollywood, Sports and the A-List Music Party.

Exclusively during the month of February, visitors (groups of up to four adults) to the star-studded attraction can enjoy a special 20 per cent discount by mentioning “diamonds are a girl’s best friend” at the entrance and can cast their hand in wax for just AED25, reduced from AED40.
