Aaliyah has OFFICIALLY been added to Madame Tussauds’ Wax Museum!
The beautiful piece is a straight replica from her look in her 2000 “Try Again” music video. She is wearing her signature leather pants, metallic bra, sparkling belt and choker set which is still a staple look for the late icon.

Her brother, Rashad, played an imperative part in making sure the wax figure truly resembled his sister so that her legacy would be properly memorialized.
The figure is already public at Madame Tussauds in Las Vegas, after tons of fans have anticipated this, long overdue, tribute.
Adam Morey, the Studios Manager at the wax museum, states that this project was more about inspiration than flair. “This set, rather than being a recreation of any one particular Aaliyah moment, was instead designed with a message to her fans in mind,” he says. “It’s a message that hopefully reflects her everlasting legacy.”
