Fergie, Stacy Ann Ferguson of Black Eyed Peas fame, visited Madame Tussauds Las Vegas attraction for her wax figure reveal on Thursday, Sept. 22, 2011. Fergie was dressed in a body hugging red dress and high heels for her big day.
Known for her thriving solo career, acting credits, fashion ventures and success with the Black Eyed Peas, Fergie is the latest wax figure to be added to the Madame Tussauds Las Vegas collection. The figure features a futuristic body suit worn during the E.N.D. Tour with the Black Eyed Peas. It boasts a chrome and acrylic corset, metal fins and is adorned with Swarovski crystals.
Fergie joins the ranks of other immortalized celebrities that call Madame Tussauds Las Vegas home, such as Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga, Gwen Stefani and Madonna. Upon seeing her figure for the first time, she was both astounded and honored.
“It’s amazing, it’s a dream come true,” remarked Fergie. “I’ve always wanted a wax figure. It’s such an honor to have this done.” “Fergie has experienced overwhelming success as a member of The Black Eyed Peas, as a solo artist and as a fashion designer,” remarked Rosita Chapman, general manager of Madame Tussauds Las Vegas. “Her exciting and attention-grabbing persona has made her a household name around the world as well as the perfect addition to the lineup of A-list wax figures at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas.”
The figure is located in the attraction’s latest room - Club Tussauds. A 2,000-square-foot nightlife-themed exhibit, Club Tussauds hosts celebrity VIP’s such as “Eva Longoria,” “Justin Timberlake,” “Bradley Cooper,” “Jennifer Lopez,” and now “Fergie.” In this room, guests have the illusion of being 40 floors up at one of the hippest Vegas hotspots.
