PHOTOS: The Good, Bad, And Ugly Of Wax Figure Fashion
wax figures fascinate us. Some look frighteningly realistic, some look offensively fake and most are just plain weird. What interests us most, however, are the wardrobe choices of said figures. A bad outfit can really cramp a statue’s style, y’know?
We’ve compiled some of our favorite (and least favorite) figures. Who looks wonderfully waxy and who looks terribly tacky?
Both real and wax Kim are wearing fuchsia Herve Leger dresses, though real Kim accessorized with a pair of patent Loubs.
We usually like a bit of unexpected color, but this shade of orange doesn't serve Nicole very well. Also, we'd make a joke about her frozen wax expression and her Botox addiction, but...
Real life Carrie looks simple and chic in black and grey, but wax Carrie is outfitted in a pink sparkly mini-dress. So many sparkles!
4.Tyra Banks & Kate Moss
Tyra and Kate look simple and chic in lovely evening gowns... and no shoes.
Gwen's statue's outfit seems quite Gwen-appropriate. We can totally imagine the rocker wearing this neon bra/sheer tank/combat boot midriff-bearing ensemble in concert. Real Gwen is wearing a less outrageous floral halter dress.
What is Miley wearing?? This whole outfit is the worst — from the ill-fitting jeans to the butterfly top to the hideous shoe.
Wax Heidi's smile (and boobs) look supremely fake, but her mirrored dress detracts from both (sort of). Her matching shoes and choker seem dated, and in stark contrast to real Heidi's more modern look.
We suppose this was a temporary costume change during Paris's jailbird period. Not cute.
Real Helen looks painfully dowdy in her rose print top, pink skirt and curiously large belt. Sigh. Well, double sigh because she also seems to be wearing pantyhose. Her wax figure strikes a far more fashionable note in a glamorous black lace gown.
Real and wax Taylor are wearing matching super-embellished dresses (that look like they weigh far too much to be comfortable) and black peeptoe pumps. Now, If only their faces matched...
This wax rendering is pretty horrendous, and her gold evening gown looks more like a satin nightie.
Wax Serena seems ready to kick some serious ass in tricked out Shox and a pleated Nike denim skirt. Real Serena, on the other hand, opted for something a bit more formal.
