Aaliyah lives on in many forms, and now there’s a new wax figure to celebrate her incredible life.
Madame Tussauds in Las Vegas just unveiled its very first wax sculpture of the late R&B singer, immortalizing Aaliyah in one of her iconic looks.
The spot-on wax statue is being rolled out Wednesday night in the heart of the Vegas strip, with a special unveiling for Aaliyah’s family and a bunch of celebs.
Honchos at Madame Tussauds tell TMZ … Aaliyah’s wax figure was inspired by the music video for her smash hit, “Try Again,” and the details are down to a T … with the exact same outfit, hair style, makeup and lower-back tattoo.
We’re told the designer worked closely with Aaliyah’s fam, especially her brother Rashad Haughton, to ensure the sculpture brought her character back to life.
As you know … Aaliyah died in a plane crash way back in 2001, but she’s still got a huge following … and fans will be able to check out her wax statue this summer in the same exhibit as other stars from the 1990s.
