Aaliyah is being honored with a wax figure at Madame Tussauds in Las Vegas.
The figure was unveiled by the late singer’s brother Rashad Haughton, and it comes just days before the 18th anniversary of her death.
Adam Morey, Studios Manager at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas says that there was only one choice for the look of the Aaliyah wax likeness.
“It was clear right away it would be the ‘Try Again’ look for our Aaliyah figure,” he says via email statement. “The look has the sexy, edgy, timeless vibe we try to imbue in the Las Vegas attraction within all our creative choices. Mining popular culture as only Madame Tussauds can, our desire to honor Aaliyah and the look in this way was only confirmed as we see today’s Hollywood stars like KeKe Palmer, Kim Kardashian, Zendaya, also paying homage by recreating their own favorite moments of the Princess of R&B.”
