Earlier this week, Londoners thought they had stumbled upon Kanye West and Kim Kardashian filming for the reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Kanye and Kim were spotted at the most visited tourist attractions including Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, the London Eye, the Millennium Bridge, Piccadilly Circus, and Tower Bridge, however, West and his wife weren’t actually in London at all. So who were the A-list imitators?

A life-size wax figure of Kanye West was added to Madame Tussauds London collection this week and will be placed next to Kim in the permanent exhibit. But first, to celebrate Kanye’s addition to Madame Tussauds collection, the wax figures of West and Kim were taken around London. Kim’s wax figure was unveiled in the beginning of July, and wearing a white bandage dress, she’s posed to look like she’s taking a selfie with a fake cell phone.
Photos of West and Kim on their sight-seeing tour around London have been collected into a holiday album that will be released by Madame Tussaud.
Apparently, the couple looked so realistic, some people thought they were mere steps away from meeting West and Kardashian. Londoners were then spotted taking photos with the wax figures of Kanye West and Kim.

Not everyone loved Kanye West’s wax figure, however.
The Mirror wrote, “while we’re used to the rapper’s moody post–his double completely lacks emotion.”
Yikes! Since Kanye West doesn’t smile all that often, it makes sense his wax look-a-like isn’t smiling either.
A visitor to London, Fraser Abel, thought he really saw Kanye and Kim and didn’t want to interrupt filming for the reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
Abel told the Daily Mail, “They are just so real. I really thought they were filming for the TV show. I can’t believe they are not flesh and blood; just too, too good.”
Have you been to one of Madame Tussauds museums? What do you think of the wax figures of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West?
