Kate Winslet waxwork unveiled at Madame Tussauds

Kate Winslet has today been immortalised in wax at Madame Tussauds and her lookalike is being shown alongside other British acting talents such as Dames Helen Mirren and Judi Dench.

Model-makers spent months perfecting the figure of 36-year-old Kate and the model has been dressed in the red cap-sleeve Elie Saab dress she wore to collect her prize at the Emmy Awards earlier this year.

Kate was included at Madame Tussauds after visitors voted for her to get her own tribute.

Liz Edwards, PR Manager at the tourist attraction, said: “Guests from around the world voted for Kate Winslet in droves – she has clearly got wide reaching global appeal.

“She is an iconic actress of a generation; a true English Rose and we’re delighted to be creating a figure of her.”

Other stars to have waxworks at Madame Tussauds include Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Britney Spears, David Beckham and Brad Pitt.
