 The "Musee Grévin“ is a famous wax museum in the heart of Paris – similar to "Madame Tussauds“ in London. It accomodates more than 300 replicas of famous personalities from Napoleon to George Clooney and Madonna. The latest highlight of the exhibition is a wax figure of Lady Gaga, wearing an original dress, wig and accessories of her favorite French designer, Charlie Le Mindu.  What‘s even more special about this new exhibit is that the outfit is made out of thousands of real Hairdreams hair – Charlie Le Mindu’s preferred natural material, that is usually used to make hair extensions.

In addition, the head piece of Lady Gaga’s wax "twin“ was made out of Hairdreams real hair. The designer of wax figures of the museum was given approximately 500,000 hair strands, which was applied onto Lady Gaga‘s wax figure in very detailed manner resulting in months of hard labor.

 The new, intricately designed wax figure was celebrated and unveiled with the attendance of designer, Charlie Le Mindu and as well as international press and guests. The exhibit is now open to the public for those who want to get a glimpse at Lady Gaga‘s wax twin.
