Madame Tussauds Unveils New Rihanna Wax Figure Dressed in 2018 Met Gala Look
A new wax figure is dazzling bright in this museum ahead of the Super Bowl.
Rihanna was recently celebrated with a new wax figure that was unveiled by Madame Tussauds in New York City ahead of her highly anticipated appearance as the Super Bowl LVII halftime performer.
According to Entertainment Tonight, the figure graces the museum’s Glow Room, decked out in the singer’s 2018 Met Gala look that caught the attention of the public as she walked the red carpet, dressed as the pope in a Maison Margiela design by John Galliano.
The fashion ensemble features the diamond and crystal encrusted skirt and overcoat, worn by the superstar, who matched the look with a diamond-encrusted manicure.
“Rihanna is sure to make history with her upcoming live show this Sunday so the timing is perfect for us to reveal her new figure exclusively at Madame Tussauds New York where fans can admire and pose with the icon,” Joerg Hanel, General Manager at Madame Tussauds New York, said in a statement.
The Museum also teased an upcoming figure of Rihanna that is being constructed to feature the “Work” singer’s Super Bowl LVII halftime look. The figure will be placed at the Madame Tussauds in Orlando, FL later this year.
As Rihanna’s performance date for the Super Bowl LVII halftime show swiftly approaches, reveals like the wax figure unveiling and other news for the artist have been dropping back to back.
As previously reported by BLACK ENTERPRISE, sources revealed that Rihanna will be announcing dates for a new North American tour for 2023, following her Super Bowl performance. Sources also teased that dates for a 2024 European tour are in the works.
“Her plan is to set up mini residencies in major cities rather than visit multiple places,” an inside source said, adding that “She wants her next global outing to be swift and easy as she plans to refocus on Fenty Beauty and Savage X Fenty after her brief return to music.”
