Petition to Have Kimora Immortalized in Wax!

Madame Tussauds wax museum is known the world over for giving some of the most influential celebrities, politicians and other historical figures wax.  The amazingly life-like sculptures have wowed visitors in London (the flagship location), Amsterdam, Hong Kong, Berlin, Hollywood, Las Vegas, Shanghai, Sydney, Washington, D.C. and New York City.  Tussauds landed in Times Square in 2000, shortly after receiving rave reviews for the first U.S. location in Las Vegas.

Imagine my shock when Kimora confirmed this morning that she does not have a figure in the Times Square location!  In 2000, Kimora Lee Simmons would have been about 24, 25 years old when Tussauds opened there.  She was already kicking down doors in the fashion world with the Baby Phat brand and at such a young age, she should have been a sure thing to have been added to the collection! 

She produced the first live broadcast of a fashion show down in Times Square and there probably isn't a soul alive in N.Y.C. who doesn't know who Kimora Lee Simmons is or that she is synonymous with business, power, philanthropy and popular culture in that city.  She's now the President and Creative Director of Just Fabulous and at only 36 years old, is ever-expanding her business might.  So, here's hoping that finally, 11 years later, Madame Tussauds will make this right.

One of Kimora's young followers on Twitter, @Lile_Fab, started a Twitition, after another, @LUV_U_KLS_ suggested she should be added, to convince Tussauds NYC (@NYCWax on Twitter) to add the Queen of Fabulosity to its collection. Sign it and spread the word!  This should be a no-brainer Tussauds! The unveiling of her sculpture will be out of this world! --Sugar
