Fame at last! François Hollande on show at Madame Tussauds
François Hollande made his appearance at London’s Madame Tussauds waxworks museum this week. The representation of the French president was the work of 20 sculptors, plus make-up artists and hairdressers, and cost 190,000 euros to make.
The outfit is the same as the one he wore on the day he took office.
Hollande did not pose for the effigy – he didn’t have the time – and was made from photos and videos that the museum had archived.
His predecessor, Nicolas Sarkozy, has now been confined to Madame Tussauds warehouse.
