Trump waxwork replaces Obama at Madame Tussauds London
Jan 20, 2017-
A Donald Trump waxwork has been unveiled at Madame Tussauds museum in London, complete with his signature suntan—and yak hair. Dressed in a navy suit, white shirt and red tie, the wax figure of Trump was placed in a mock-up of the White House’s Oval Office.
With a United States
flag lapel pinned to his suit jacket, the model stands with his hands to his waist and a sombre look on his lined face.
Specialists were brought in to weave yak hair into Trump’s scalp, while makeup artists went about creating his suntanned look.
“Since Mr Trump was announced as the victorious candidate in what was a nail-biting and hard-fought campaign for both parties, our studio team have been frantically busy matching his infamous glowing tan and trademark hairstyle in time for the start of his presidential reign,” said museum manager Edward Fuller. His arrival at Madame Tussauds’s version of the Oval Office saw the outgoing president Barack Obama moved out of the museum display.
