Rihanna gets waxed at Madame Tussauds

Rihanna has been immortalised in wax.

The Loud singer was honoured with her own waxwork at London's Madame Tussauds museum where she took centre stage at the attraction's interactive Music Zone alongside Britney Spears, Kylie Minogue, Lady Gaga and the late Amy Winehouse.

The model of Rihanna - who is famed for her sexy outfits - is wearing the raunchy long black dress she donned to perform her duet with Matt Cardle on the UK final of The X Factor last year, complete with a bright cherry red hair-do.

Liz Edwards, PR Manager at the attraction, said: "We are thrilled to welcome Rihanna to Madame Tussauds London. Her inclusion couldn't be more timely as her Loud tour arrives in the capital this week. We are sure she will hit the right note with our guests as demand for her figure has been huge since her appearance on The X Factor 2010.

"Rihanna is one of the biggest music stars of the moment and is a perfect addition to the 'diva dream team' of female artists we have here at the attraction."

The figure took four months to complete at a cost of £150,000 (NZ$307,000).

Other stars to have waxworks at Madame Tussauds include Justin Bieber, David Beckham and Brad Pitt.
