Is There Much Down There, Joan?

This picture from March 1989 was used in UK newspaper reports at the launch of the 2nd wax figure of Joan and it's unveiling at Madame Tussards waxworks in London.

According to reports Joan was not impressed with the model,and didn't like the hair, it was "too tightly curled and not dark like mine" she told Tussards staff, and "The face isn't right either - why the lipstick doesn't even cover my lips".

The £2000.00 gold lame gown was made by royal designers David and Elizabeth Emanuel to Joan's order.

The figure was to feature in a gallery of Hollywood stars alongside Michael Caine, Sylvester Stallone, Cher and Eddie Murphy, standing on a staircase as shown in this second press photo.

When I saw the waxwork on a trip to the museum days later, I wasn't impressed with it either and much preferred the first one from 1985.
