United States Vice President Kamala Harris has solidified her history in wax – literally.
On January 18, Madame Tussauds, an iconic wax museum, revealed the fresh new figures of President Joseph Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. Traditionally, each new president receives the highly sought-after honor of a massively detailed Tussauds wax figure. However, this year Kamala made history by becoming the first-ever Vice President to stand in the wax-centered oval office.
Her figure stands near Joe Biden in purple garb, similar to her inauguration look. The wax VP sports a shorter coat customized by the same designer as the original, Christopher John Rogers. Her jewelry, a near replica, includes a beautiful set of pearls – showing love to her Alpha Kappa Alpha, Inc. roots.
While the duo was not present for the creating process, sculptors, designers and other artists used hundreds of films and photos to perfect their figures. The brand new creations took approximately six months to make.
The “Oval Office Experience” featuring America’s first Black Woman Vice President Kamala Harris is currently open at Madame Tussauds Times Square.
