Cara Delevingne, Naomi Campbell immortalised in wax

British supermodels Cara Delevingne and Naomi Campbell have been immortalised in wax at Paris' Grevin Museum, which has launched a new fashion section.

There are some recognisable features in 22-year-old Delevingne's wax work, but Campbell's does not seem to vaguely resemble herself, reported Independent online.

Delevingne's wax imitation is based on the cover of Melissa shoes magazine from 2013, which features the model sitting on a bench alongside Karl Lagerfeld, with her legs crossed, sporting a pony-tail and clad in shiny latex.

44-year-old Campbell is not the first time she is immortalised. Back in 2005 she got a waxwork exhibited at the same French museum and in 1996 a Campbell waxwork was showcased at London's Madame Tussauds.

The new section of the museum celebrates the fashion industry and joins the more traditional section, which includes iconic movie stars, musicians and sporting greats.

"I do quite like to have a day where I'm just hanging out in the house, in comfy clothes, catching up on books that I've wanted to read. That's a real treat for me. Just going about with no makeup on," she said.

Beckham said she loves her long hair as she can experiment with different hairstyles.

"I loved my hair short, but the great thing about having long hair is you can do so much more with it.

"It's a lot easier! Maybe one day (I'll cut it again), but for the moment I'm enjoying the fact that it's actually a lot easier to have the long hair -- it's just effortless," she said.
