DUBAI: Iraqi American beauty moguls and siblings Huda and Mona Kattan are the latest celebrities to join the illustrious wax figures at Madame Tussauds Dubai.
The Huda Beauty co-founders join the likes of Victoria Beckham and Cara Delevingne in Madame Tussauds’ Fashion Zone, where they have their own designated space. Taking inspiration from the Huda Beauty Covent Garden Pop Up, the space is fitted out with a shimmering, metallic backdrop. In the center of the set up sits a metallic throne, where guests can sit in the spotlight and get an Instagrammable shot with the beauty icons.
While Huda's wax figure wears a floor-length gown by haute couture designer Yousef Al-Jasmi, Mona's wax figure is dressed in a striking black jumpsuit by British-Lebanese designer Nadine Merabi.
“I am so honored to have my very own wax figure at Madame Tussauds! I feel so fortunate to be sharing a space with global icons, but more importantly, my sister Mona. I have so much appreciation for all the phenomenal people and talents who made this possible. They are the drivers behind the wheel," said Huda in a statement.
"Being given this opportunity was so surreal and incredible. It was amazing to be involved in the whole process to bring this to life! I am super excited about the reveal of my Madame Tussauds wax figure. This was such an inspiring and humbling experience from beginning to end, and being able to share it with Huda makes it even more special," added Mona.
