Madame Tussauds London has today unveiled the latest star to join its line-up ahead of the bank holiday weekend – two-time GRAMMY Award® winning singer, songwriter, rapper, and LGBTQ+ icon Lil Nas X.
Known for his memorable red carpet and performance looks, Montero is celebrated for pushing the boundaries of masculinity with his outlandish styling choices, with his newest figure following that precedent. Guests visiting Madame Tussauds London will get to see the Diamond-selling artist styled in the head-turning hot pink cowboy outfit he wore to the 2020 GRAMMY Awards®.
The custom-made recreation of the Atelier Versace look is brought to life with a stunning leather jacket embellished with gold details, Swarovski crystals and Medusa head buttons. The jacket sits over a matching pink mesh top, bondage-inspired leather harness and elaborately printed scarfs wrapped around his wrists. The look is tied together with the iconic matching cowboy hat, boots, gold Versace jewellery and the addition of the star’s sparkling iced-out grills, at Lil Nas X’s request and custom-made by Alligator Jesus especially for the new figure.
This new arrival at the Baker Street attraction marks the second time that Lil Nas X has been immortalised in the Madame Tussauds global estate, with his first figure launched in September 2022 at Madame Tussauds Hollywood.
"Lil Nas X is truly and unapologetically himself. Always pushing boundaries when it comes to cultural norms, fashion and his music. We think his authenticity, and his eclectic fashion sense, is why he’s so beloved worldwide. We worked closely with Lil Nas X himself to ensure his new figure’s look and pose fully convey his genuine presence and personality for fans to meet. He made a specific request for his figure’s arm to be outstretched with his palm facing upwards so that fans could hold his hand as they meet him – a touching request we know his fans will love. We can’t wait for fans of this music icon to step through our famous doors this bank holiday weekend and take in the experience of meeting Lil Nas X’s new figure in all its glory.”Tim Waters, General Manager, Madame Tussauds London
