Latin Artists With Madame Tussauds Wax Figure: Shakira, Bad Bunny & More

In 2021, both Anitta and Maluma became the latest Latin music stars to get their own wax figures. The former is located at the Madame Tussauds museum in New York, and the latter in the Orlando location.

“I’m a big dreamer,” the Colombian urban-pop star previously said of the honor. “I remember when I was in high school saying that I wanted to be here at the museum and everything is happening; nothing is too big to make it happen.”

In true “waxed” fashion, the figure — which took nearly six months and 20 studio artists in London to create — required hundreds of measurements and photographs from every angle, and color-matched all the singer’s features. The singer-songwriter is rocking an all-white Versace double-breasted jacket and black Bottega Veneta shoes for his figure.

Anitta’s wax figure — which also took nearly six months and 20 studio artists in London to create — shows the “Girl From Rio” singer rocking ripped jeans, a bedazzled thong, and a cutout top as artists get her exact measurements, hair color, eye color, and skin tone.

“It’s amazing to be a part of this project! At first, I couldn’t believe I was actually invited,” the Brazilian artist said at the unveiling in New York. “I mean, I never thought that a wax figure of me could be next to some of the biggest stars ever at Madame Tussauds. A lot of hard work from the museum team came into this, so I am very proud and excited for the world to see it.”

The Madame Tussauds wax museum, which was founded in 1835 in London, has a number of locations across the U.S., including in Hollywood, New York, Las Vegas, and Orlando.
