Lizzo’s First Wax Figure Unveiled At Madame Tussauds Las Vegas
Lizzo’s first wax figure has been revealed by the three-time Grammy award-winning multi-platinum superstar herself ahead of its arrival at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas.
The figure for the music coin was inspired by her 2020 Grammy red-carpet look of a white Versace floor length gown adorned with a faux fur shawl and Stuart Weitzman strappy heels. Exact nail art and jewelry has also been recreated for a detailed finish.
“Lizzo is an insanely talented and beloved pop culture icon,” said Gabriel Hewitt, General Manager for Madame Tussauds Las Vegas. “We love everything that Lizzo represents and we’re so excited for guests to have an interactive experience that celebrates self-love, acceptance and positivity.”
Illuminated by a sunset cloud scape, Lizzo’s figure takes its place atop a giant wedding cake.
The new figure took approximately six months to create by a team of twenty London based artists. Hundreds of measurements and photographs from every angle were taken during Lizzo’s sitting to capture her exact features including hair color, eye color and skin tone, according to Madame Tussauds.
Loved all over the world for her larger-than-life personality and commitment to spreading messages of self-love and body positivity, Lizzo, born Melissa Viviane Jefferson, has been topping the charts since 2019 with her album Cuz I Love You.
Lizzo has also headed out on tour this year to promote her fourth studio album Special, which includes the hit song “About Damn Time.”
