Madame Tussauds unveils new Biden and Harris figures
President Biden and Vice President Harris can now mark the one-year anniversary of their inauguration with a distinct and unusual honor: their own wax figures.
Madame Tussauds New York unveiled the unblinking versions of the commander in chief and VP on Tuesday. The big reveal was timed to coincide with the inaugural anniversary on Thursday.
While the Times Square wax museum has a figure for each of the American presidents, it’s the first time it’s included a vice president among its lineup.
The grinning wax replicas — both sporting recreations of the outfits the living, breathing politicians wore on Inauguration Day — each took six months to craft, according to Madame Tussauds. Biden’s wardrobe is mimicked down to his navy and gold Senate cufflinks and United States flag lapel pin.
Harris’s likeness is clothed in a custom creation by Christopher John Rogers, the same fashion designer behind her inaugural look. The vice president’s wax model is seen wearing a short version of her coat “suitable for its indoor setting.”
The wax pair are on display in the museum’s faux Oval Office, which Madame Tussauds bills as the “first and currently only re-creation” of the famed White House work space.
