Zendaya is the latest celebrity to be commemorated in wax at London’s Madame Tussauds. The “Euphoria” star will be a permanent part of the museum’s awards party zone and is set to be officially unveiled during Feb. half term.
Tim Waters, general manager at Madame Tussauds London, said that “Zendaya just exudes cool. Not only that, she uses her celebrity status to join conversations, thoughtfully, on important social issues. She is unapologetically herself — and we, along with her fans, love that about her. With rumours circulating that Zendaya is soon to become a Londoner herself, the timing to pay homage to her at Madame Tussauds London could not be better.”
The actor’s figure is inspired by her striking style and captured her wearing a vivid pink suit that she first wore at the Humane Society of The United States’ To The Rescue Gala, back in 2016, with her hair tied back. According to Madame Tussauds, “Zendaya’s new figure has been sculpted using measurements and references taken during her 2015 sitting with the world-famous attraction’s artists.”
That said, reactions to the figure on Twitter have been pretty mixed, with fans undecided as to whether it actually looks like Zendaya or not, particularly in terms of the facial features. One user tweeted “so close, yet so far” and honestly, it’s pretty spot on.
