Bow Down for Beyoncé's New Wax Figure 👑
- Thursday July 27th 2023
- Beyoncé, Edge
Bow down BeyHive because the Queen – one of the greatest performers of our generation – is receiving a new wax figure at Madame Tussauds New York 👑🐝
Beyoncé's memorable look is a dazzling recreation of her showstopping Homecoming ensemble from her 2018 Coachella performance, where she made history as the first black woman to headline the festival. Debuting at Edge, the highest outdoor sky deck in the Western Hemisphere, the figure took in stunning sights of the New York City skyline in every direction. Sparkling under the night sky, the figure is wearing a replica of the Balmain bodysuit and cape, along with cane and ornate headpiece emulating the powerful Queen Nefertiti.
To achieve the exact likeness of Beyoncé, a team of 20 talented Madame Tussauds studio artists, sculptors and designers in London got in “Formation” and researched hundreds of images, videos and magazines to meticulously capture all of her most striking nuances and fierce attitude, with the figure taking six months to complete.
Beyoncé is entertainment royalty and for a good reason. The record breaking singer-songwriter has sold over 200 million records worldwide and holds 32 Grammy Awards – the highest Grammy-winning artist of all time. Additional achievements include 26 MTV Video Music Awards, 24 NAACP Image Awards, 31 BET Awards, and 17 Soul Train Music Awards, all of which are more than any other artist in the music industry.
