SHILOH NOUVEL JOLIE PITT IMMORTALIZED IN WAX AT MADAME TUSSAUDS NEW YORK
Visitors will be able to pose for a family photo with Shiloh Nouvel and (wax) parents, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, in special African-themed nursery
July 26, 2006 [New York, NY]Â The world’s most famous baby – Shiloh Nouvel Jolie Pitt – made headlines again today as she became the first baby to be immortalized in wax at Madame Tussauds New York.Â Shiloh’s wax figure is nestled in a woven bassinet in an African-themed nursery with proud (wax) parents, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, standing over her.Â
Soft African lullabies play throughout Shiloh’s nursery, which also features jungle-themed curtains, a whimsical chandelier, a white changing table and giant stuffed animals.Â Guests can pose for a “family photo” with Angelina, Brad and their bundle of joy.Â The figure – dressed in a t-shirt and baby blue trousers – is a perfect likeness of Shiloh, complete with her Mom’s signature pouty lips.Â
To honor Angelina Jolie’s and Brad Pitt’s commitment to philanthropy, Madame Tussauds New York will donate $1 to UNICEF for every Shiloh “family photo” purchased at the attraction.
“We are thrilled to ‘bring to wax’ Shiloh Nouvel Jolie Pitt.Â Even though she’s just a few months old, Shiloh is already an iconic figure in world popular culture,” said Janine DiGioacchino, General Manager, Madame Tussauds New York.Â “We hope to delight our guests with a chance to get closer to the world’s most famous family.Â And, we are proud to follow Angelina’s and Brad’s good example by donating to UNICEF – an organization dedicated to preserving children’s rights around the world.”
