Whitney Houston Wax Figures Unveiled at Madam Tussauds
Madam Tussauds’ wax museum unveiled four statues of the late, great Whitney Houston. The pop diva died a year ago — Feb. 11 is the anniversary — and the wax figures represent, commemorate and celebrate different eras of Houston’s long and storied career and show off the various sides of her personality and style.
There’s Whit circa her 1988 video ‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody,’ wearing Day-Glo makeup and sporting big,’80s appropriate curls. Her arms are crossed and she has a devilish gleam in her eye. This figure will live in the Las Vegas location.
The sporty, tracksuit-wearing Whit, who has her hands raised in the air victoriously, is from her performance of the national anthem at the 1991 Super Bowl. It will be placed in the Washington, DC museum.
The version of Houston as her ‘The Bodyguard’ character Rachel Marron, wearing a futuristic, sexy robot costume, complete with a short bob and headset, will take up residence in the Hollywood Madame Tussauds.
The late-period wax rendering of Whit, wearing a long, gilded gown for her final album ‘I Look to You,’ will be housed in the New York museum.
