Aishwarya all waxed up

Culture and Media

Aishwarya Rai has been frozen for posterity in the Madame Tussauds museum. The article from Times of India spends a lot of time describing the sari the waxwork wears:

…. we worked on the embroidery and borrowed the colour from the peacock (green, red, blue and earthy mix), which is very Indian. The design is called the carpet design and the pattern, pre-pleated.”

Initially,” says Shahab, the Tussauds’ people were apprehensive of the sari as there would be a certain posture that the statue would take. That’s why the sari is designed in a way that can be taken off easily for cleaning. There’s a skirt pattern, with a sari pleated on it. Fifty artists worked on it for 3 shifts in 9 days!” If you visit you might be tempted to go to the Brad Pitt exhibit, which has a strokable chest and squeezable bottom!
