From MTV Buzzworthy:
Okay, I think we can all agree that Madame Tussauds might be getting a little too good at their work, right? I mean, first there was the Rihanna wax figure, which had a disturbingly lifelike look to it. And now we get this Gwen Stefani wax model which, while a bit pale, frankly, still bears a striking resemblance to the original human model.
Above we see Gwen Stefani posing with her wax model at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas branch. The modern-day, fashion queen, wife and mother that Gwen Stefani has become got to hang out with the punky, spunky, “Spiderwebs” version of herself (though the wax figure was decked out in the clothes Gwen rocked on No Doubt’s 2009 reunion tour).
What do you think? Is Madame Tussauds getting a little too lifelike with their wax figures? Is it starting to freak you out? Let us know!
Gwen Stefani unveils her very own wax figure at Madame Tussauds on Wednesday (September 22) in Las Vegas.
The 40-year-old No Doubt frontwoman posed with the life-like model, which reportedly took nearly six months to create and cost $300,000. Check out the figure’s tight tummy and abs!
Gwen’s statue will be in good company. The wax figures of Angelina Jolie, Britney Spears, Brad Pitt and even President Barack Obama are also housed at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas.

Looks like Gwen Stefani really took her song “Don’t Speak” to heart on Wednesday. Or was that the wax figurine of her exact likeness that didn’t speak? It may be a little more difficult to tell who the real No Doubt singer is and who has been immortalized in wax. Stefani, 40, was in Las Vegas Wednesday as her body double was unveiled at the Venetian hotel’s Madame Tussauds. And when the curtain dropped revealing a midriff-baring Stefani to the real Stefani, the songstress said, “That is so me.” For several minutes the mother-of-two stood in awe at her wax statue, touching its abs, staring into the eyes and putting her arm around the figure. “That is so weird,” she told her friends. “I can’t believe it. Can you believe it?” The figure is said to have taken over 500 hours to sculpt and mold and reportedly cost $300,000 to make. “That is crazy,” Stefani said while viewing the statue, six months after sitting down with sculptors for measurements in London. Madame Tussauds organizers said the Stefani was consistently one of the most requested wax figures that customers wanted to see. –Mark Gray
