Kim Kardashian is already a bride -- at least, in wax.

On Thursday, Madame Tussauds Hollywood unveiled a new wax likeness of the reality star, two days ahead of her actual wedding to New Jersey Nets star Kris Humphries in Montecito, Calif.

The figure -- which cost $300,000 to make -- is dressed a silk wedding dress designed by Beverly Hills couturier Simin that's worth six figures.

Simin had created three dresses, and more than 3,000 tourists voted on their favorite. The winning design includes a bejeweled form-fitting bodice and 20-foot silk train.

For the unveiling, the statue also was adorned a diamond and emerald necklace by La Velancia worth $1 million and a bouquet from Caspian Flowers.

The wax figure was unveiled by Perez Hilton, but Kardashian herself didn't attend the event. After Hilton tweeted about it, Kardashian responded: "This is the 1st I'm hearing bout this! Take a pic 4 me."
