Four Whitney Houston Wax Figures Unveiled For Madame Tussauds
To celebration Whitney Houston’s life and career, Madame Tussauds created not one but four wax figures of the musical icon. This is the first time in history Madame Tussauds has created four distinct wax likenesses of a single subject.
Whitney Houston’s wax figures will appear in different locations. Houston singing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl will be on display in Washington, D.C; ‘The Bodyguard’ image will be at the Hollywood location; Las Vegas will display Houston from the ‘I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)’ video; and you can see her most recent shot, gold dress and all, in New York.
All four wax figures will be unveiled in New York’s Times Square today and then be sent to each location.
Each figures was created by a team of specially trained artists. They were first sculpted in clay then molded in wax.
Hair is inserted one strand at a time and hairdressers, make-up artists and stylists finish the look. The process took four months and cost $1.2 million.
Whitney Houston died February 11th 2012 in her hotel room. Her body was found in the bathtub. She was only 48 years-old.
