It’s not the only day a stranger can fold arms with Heidi Klum, coo with Anna Wintour, or look into Kendall Jenner’s eyes. But visitors to Oculus found themselves earlier this month after being on fashionable replicas of those celebs as well as Brazilian model Alessandra Ambrosio.

In partnership with Westfield World Trade Center, Madame Tussauds wax figures appeared just before the start of New York Fashion Week. Wintour sporting her 2019 Met Gala ensemble; Jenner’s look was inspired by her appearance at the 2019 ESPYS; And Klum’s outfit came from the 15th season finale of Project Runway. Arms wide and welcoming, Ambrosia charmed passersby in a bright red asymmetrical halter dress.

But it wasn’t the outfit that caught the attention of Oculus goers, but rather the chance for some FaceTime and a photo with these high-profile fashionistas. The closest, at least, that they will ever come.

Here are some moments from those journeys.
