The waxing of Shiloh Jolie-Pitt
[ 2006-07-26 08:31 ]

杜莎夫人蜡像馆以栩栩如生、美轮美奂的世界名人蜡像而知名。如今,纽约的杜莎夫人蜡像馆又新添了一名新成员——布拉德·皮特和女友安吉丽娜·茱丽的新生女儿辛洛·诺维尔。辛洛·诺维尔出生于非洲纳米比亚,在女儿出生不久,皮特和茱丽曾公开出售辛洛·诺维尔的照片,并将全部收入捐给慈善机构。

Barely two months since her birth, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's baby Shiloh Nouvel already merits its own figure at the Madame Tussaud's wax museum in New York, the museum announced. 

The first baby ever given the honor, Shiloh Nouvel's figure "with Moms signature pouty lips and delicate features," will be inaugurated on Wednesday, joining more than 200 top celebrities portrayed in wax statues.

Shiloh Nouvel was born to the Hollywood megastars in Namibia on May 27. While her parents have kept the real Shiloh out of the public eye, at Madame Tussaud's she "will lie peacefully inside a woven bassinet" in her "very own African-themed nursery," near figures of her parents, the museum said in a statement.

"The nursery -- painted a pale yellow -- also includes jungle-themed curtains, a whimsical chandelier, a white changing table and giant stuffed animals," the statement said.

"Soft African lullabies will be played in the background, and guests can pose for a 'family photo'" with the three figures, said the museum, which promises to send a dollar per photo to the UN children's fund UNICEF.

Jolie has been a United Nations goodwill ambassador for several years.
