Rihanna has been immortalised in wax.

The 'Rude Boy' singer is the latest star to be honoured with her own replica figure by famous museum Madame Tussauds and was so happy with her likeness - unveiled in Washington D.C. yesterday (31.08.10) - that she immediately tweeted a picture of it.

The singer's stylish double wears a black lace corset, fitted jacket, skinny pants and black silk heels, by Balmain, which was donated by Rihanna and is the outfit she wore to the French fashion house's show during Paris Fashion Week last October.

Madame Tussauds added diamond earrings, tennis bracelet and a ring, as well as a glittering pin on the jacket lapel of the figure, which sports the singer's trademark blonde quiff.

Rihanna - who is now sporting red hair - was not at the unveiling yesterday, but a spokesperson for Madame Tussauds said that the singer was granted a sneak peek of the waxwork last week and "absolutely loved it."

As well as being excited about her waxwork replica, the 'Umbrella' star is looking forward to releasing new music.

Asked by DJ Ryan Seacrest when she plans to unveil some new songs, she tweeted: "Soon! In less than 10 dayz ima send u sumn special, and ur gonna play it OVER and OVER, like I'm the only girl in the world (sic)"
