Rihanna’s Wax Figure Looks A LOT Like Rihanna

Whether you think of this as a tribute to the incredible work the folks over at Madame Tussauds do or the somewhat, um, stoic way Rihanna occasionally carries herself, you have to say, the new Rihanna wax figure looks tremendously…Rihanna-like.

I’d say lifelike, but I think that would miss the mark, right? I mean, when Madame Tussauds present a wax figure of a particularly animated celebrity, that’s when they look particularly fake. But Rihanna’s whole schtick is her placid, unknowable demeanor. Which makes her a perfect subject for wax enshrinement.

You can see Rihanna’s wax figure in the flesh (or in the wax, as it were) at the Madame Tussauds museum in Washington D.C., where she stands with other luminaries such as Rosa Parks, Barack and Michelle Obama and, um, the Jonas Brothers. Check out another picture of her lifelike wax figure, below.
