A number of celebrities have been immortalized in wax over the past couple years — including Diddy, Jamie Fox, Snoop Dogg, Michelle Obama … and now Kim Kardashian.

The reality TV star appeared at Madame Tussauds in Times Square on Thursday (July 1) to unveil the latest wax figure by the famed museum, wearing the exact same outfit as her wax counterpart.

Despite being a paparazzi mainstay, Kim told MTV she was honored upon learning that she would be made into a wax figure.

“When I first heard I was going to be immortalized, I was so honored,” Kim said at the unveiling event. “I mean, it’s a pretty cool thing. I called my sisters right away, and it looks so much like me, it’s scary. It’s probably one of the biggest honors, so [my sisters] were so excited for me.”

Her wax counterpart? Kim says it actually turned out prettier than her…

“It is weird! It’s like she’s prettier than I am. It’s so weird, like, my arms and the hands … everything about it is so exact that it’s weird to see yourself,” Kim said. “So now I can really see from an outsider’s point of view. It’s weird.”

Kim’s wax figure sports a hot pink Herve Leger bandage dress, which she wore to match it at the event. Thousands of fans came out to catch a glimpse of Kim and her new addition to the museum.

According to, when guests approach her wax likeness, they will be greeted by a personal recording from Kim and be able to see themselves and Kim on flat screen televisions surrounding her figure.

Madame Tussauds New York is located at 234 West 42nd Street, between 7th and 8th Avenues at Times Square.
