London: American reality TV star Kim Kardashian, who first grabbed headlines post an infamous sex tape scandal, will now have her famous curves immortalised in a Madame Tussauds wax work figure.

Artists at the New York museum have taken hundreds of measurements of the 28-year-old and a mould of her face has already been created, reported a news website.

A team of artists took measurements of Kardashian`s figure, including her famous derriere, for the new Madame Tussauds wax work.

"This is one of the greatest honours ever and I am so thrilled and excited. Now I will never have to leave NYC. I`ve officially gone bi-coastal!," tweeted the `Keeping Up With The
Kardashians` star.

The figurine, with a red carpet hand-on-hip pose, will don a tight Herve Leger dress and peep toe heels. It will be equipped with motion sensors which will trigger a voice greeting to guests as they walk past.

Kardashian joins a host of famous faces at the venue including Robert Pattinson, Michelle Obama and Jennifer Lopez.
