Rihanna Waxwork Unveiled

Love the way you thigh … chart star Rihanna flashes a leg as her waxwork figure is given a chance to Take A Bow at Madame Tussauds.

The singer, who ruffled feathers last week with her topless prancing as she shot a new video, has been added to the attraction’s interactive music zone.

This time Rihanna’s top half was safely under cover although the figure was clothed in a daring dress slashed to the thigh.

The outfit is the one she wore during her X Factor performance last year when she duetted with Matt Cardle. During another Rihanna performance in the same edition of the show, she stripped to a bikini, prompting a flurry of complaints to Ofcom.

The waxwork of the Barbadian singer – whose hits include Love The Way You Lie and Umbrella – took four months to complete and cost £150,000 to create. It stands alongside figures of stars such as Kylie Minogue, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga and the late Amy Winehouse.

Liz Edwards of Tussauds said: “We are sure she will hit the right note with our guests as demand for her figure has been huge since her appearance on The X Factor 2010. Rihanna is one of the biggest music stars of the moment and is a perfect addition to the “diva dream team” of female artists we have here at the attraction.”
