Wax Image of Barbadian Singer Rihanna Unveiled in Hong Kong
Joining several other iconic entertainers at the Madame Tussauds Hong Kong Art Museum is the wax figure of Barbadian Superstar, Rihanna.
The wax figure was revealed by the popular wax museum through their Instagram page on Friday, December 22 in Hong Kong. The figure portrays Rihanna in a neon-layered outfit – an orange Fenty knitted dress and a burnt Sienna trench coat- a duplicate of the dress the singer wore to an event celebrating the new Fenty fashion collection, “Release 2-20,” which has a pop-up shop at Bergdorf Goodman in 2020.
The sculpture also captures the singer’s stunning large gold hoop earrings and layered cross necklace that the Grammy award-winning singer rocked during the big event.
Rihanna’s sculpture adds up to the wax figures of prominent individuals like Hollywood actor Chris Hemsworth, K-Drama stars Lee Jong Suk and Kim Soo-hyun as well as Justin Bieber.
This makes it safe to say that the Madame Tussauds Hong Kong Art Museum is the biggest wax art museum in the world.
The Barbadian singer debuted on the American scene between 2005 and 2006 with her two studio albums, Music of the Sun (2005) and A Girl Like Me (2006). She later won her first Grammy in 2007 with her chart-topping single Umbrella and has since serenaded her fans worldwide with back-to-back hits.
In July 2020, Robyn Rihanna Fenty launched a skincare brand called Fenty Skin. The entrepreneurial journey gradually took her off the music scene with her popping in with a song or two now and then. After a long hiatus, Rihanna returned in 2022 with Lift Me Up, a soundtrack from the sequel to Black Panther, Wakanda Forever.
