Gwen Stefani Gets Wax Work

Gwen Stefani has been immortalised in wax.

The 'Hollaback Girl' singer is the latest celebrity to be honoured with her own waxwork figure, after legendary museum Madame Tussauds was inundated with requests for a model of Gwen to be made.

Madame Tussauds' General Manager Rosita Chapman said: "We are very excited to have Gwen Stefani's figure added to our attraction! She's consistently rated high on our request list, so we are very pleased to bring her figure to all her loyal fans."

The 40-year-old singer smiled for the cameras as she posed alongside her waxwork double at the launch of the figure yesterday (22.09.10) in Las Vegas.

It $300,000 to produce the lifelike figurine, and experts reportedly spent six months perfecting the 'No Doubt' singer's appearance from 250 measurements and photographs.

Las Vegas Weekly's Robin Leach reports: "The new Gwen Stefani figure took 350 hours to sculpt and 175 hours to mould. Each strand of hair, weighing 10 ounces in total, was inserted individually and then styled, taking some 140 hours over 5 weeks to complete. Other fun facts include 28 hours spent on her teeth and 14 hours spent on her eyes."

Gwen's new figure will join a galaxy of star statues including Snoop Dogg, US President Barack Obama, Michael Jackson and Madonna.
