Celebrity wax figures: Kylie Jenner’s ‘creepily’ accurate, Beyoncé’s far from flawless

Madame Tussaud’s has unveiled new wax figures in their Los Angeles and New York branches.

In New York, Beyoncé’s latest wax replica wasn’t quite on the mark:

In case you needed reminding, this is what Beyoncé actually looks like:

Her flawless brown skin appears like she had a bad day at the tanning salon, while her fabulously blown out and dyed locks look like that of other pop stars in Madame Tussaud’s latest rendition of the “Single Ladies” songstress.

The figure has since been compared to Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan and Shakira:

Some wondered if the makers had even seen Yoncé, as previous replicas haven’t been spot-on:


Granted, creating a wax figure is a meticulous process, which involves getting the celebrity’s full measurements and matching their actual skin tone. Still, it’s hard to get things perfect, but after multiple attempts, one wonders how hard it is to do Beyoncé justice.

On the other hand, the wax museum did something right—maybe even too perfectly. Kylie Jenner’s wax figure in Los Angeles captured the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” reality show star to a tee on their first try:

The sculpture is wearing Jenner’s actual Met Gala 2016 dress from Balmain.

The 19-year-old celebrity even said that her family didn’t recognize it wasn’t the real her when she talked to them over FaceTime.

Some point out that because she’s had cosmetic surgery and treatments (most notably botox and lip fillers), wax sculptors probably had their work cut out for them:

The make-up and fashion aficionado called having the figure an “amazing honor.” JB
