Kim Kardashian lands wedding day waxwork

Bosses at Hollywood's Madame Tussauds museum are celebrating Kim Kardashian's weekend wedding early - by unveiling their new waxwork double up as a bride.

The socialite and TV star will wed basketball star Kris Humphries in Montecito, California on Saturday (20Aug11) but fans can get a glimpse of what she might look like a day early.

Her new wedding look was unveiled at Madame Tussauds on Thursday (18Aug11).

Kim Kardashian will wear two Vera Wang gowns on her big day, but her waxwork double has been dressed by Beverly Hills couturier Simin, while $1 million worth of jewels adorn the figure.

Upon hearing the news her wax lookalike had been dressed for the wedding, Kim Kardashian tweeted she was "excited" to see it.

The new $300,000 waxwork is the third one of Kardashian on display at Madame Tussauds museums.
