Photo Coverage: Madame Tussaud's Celebrates Marilyn Monroe's Birthday!

 

 

In celebration of Marilyn Monroe's 86th birthday, Madame Tussauds New York today featured the blonde bombshell's wax figure in its lobby on Thursday, May 31st at 11:00 a.m. at Madame Tussauds New York (234 W. 42nd Street between Seventh & Eighth Avenues) and unveiled a one-of-a-kind 8 x 4 foot portrait made from 2,100 bite sized stuffed cupcakes by Baked by Melissa. The specially-created portrait depicts the iconic image of Monroe standing on a subway grate as her white dress is blown above her knees by a passing train.
