Entertainment News

Gayes! Did you see Madame Tussauds London and Michelle Visage’s latest RU-VEAL?

Earlier this week on Tuesday (Feb. 6), the museum unveiled a new wax figure made in the likeness of drag queen and global icon RuPaul. This makes Mama Ru the first-ever drag queen to have a wax figure at Madame Tussauds London.

The figure which dawns a custom-made gown by RuPaul’s longtime fashion collaborator Zaldy is set to make its debut to the public Friday, Feb 9 as part of the museum's upcoming “Fashion Runway” collection. 

Zaldy revealed the custom was inspired by his prior works with Ru through the years “I wanted it to be an authentic representation of what Ru wears, to make it this glamorous statement, and make it big,” Zaldy said.

“This bespoke creation for Madame Tussauds London, for Ru, and for the fashion zone, is full of all the emotions that you feel when working with Ru: fun, joy, and happiness.”

In addition to famous drag divas other prominent figures in fashion such as The Beckhams, Zendaya, Harry Styles, Kendall Jenner, and more.

Upon the figures' revelation, Visage expressed her excitement saying “The teeth, the lips, the nails. It’s like I’m at home and with Ru!” 

She continued saying” Fans and guests will love this figure, the artists have made this so beautifully and I see Ru.”

The figure comes on the heels of RuPaul Drag Race’s fifth win for outstanding reality competition program and RuPaul's eighth consecutive Emmy win for outstanding host for a reality or competition program.
