Cara Delevingne and Naomi Campbell are immortalised in wax - and the results don't do much justice

The results may not do the famously fair-faced do much justice, but the London models fly the flag of British fashion

British supermodels Cara Delevingne and Naomi Campbell have been immortalised in wax at Paris’ Grevin Museum, which has launched a new fashion section.

Whilst the results may not do the famously fair-faced duo much justice, the London models fly the flag of British fashion at the newly opened wing of the Parisian museum.

There are some recognisable features in Delevingne’s wax work, but Campbell’s doesn’t seem to vaguely resemble herself.

Delevingne’s wax imitation is based on the cover of Melissa shoes magazine from 2013, which features the model sitting on a bench alongside Karl Lagerfeld, with her legs crossed, sporting a pony-tail and clad in shiny latex.

Campbell’s, however, isn’t quite so accurate. But this is not the first time she is immortalised. Back in 2005 she got a waxwork exhibited at the same French museum and in 1996 a Campbell waxwork was showcased at London’s Madame Tussauds.

The British models were joined by fellow fashion figures such as Canadian model Coco Rocha, who looks more realistic in a golden gown; designer and model Inès de la Fressange, who posed next to her identically-dressed waxwork; Jean Paul Gaultier, who holds his cheerful French smile; and Madonna, who own face is quite famously wax-like, shall we say.

The new section of the museum celebrates the fashion industry and joins the more traditional section, which includes iconic movie stars, musicians and sporting greats.
