Zendaya has been making her mark on the showbiz world in recent years with some incredible roles on the big screen including Spider-Man, Euphoria , Dune and The Greatest Showman, and she is now the latest celeb to be added to Madame Tussauds waxwork collection in London.
On Friday, February 11, the museum’s official Twitter account shared photos of Zendaya’s wearing a neon pink Christian Siriano suit paired with a chic hairstyle and subtle jewelry, will be unveiled at the Baker Street attraction.
The waxwork has been made using measurements and references from a sitting the Euphoria star did in 2015, and the results are pretty accurate!

Tim Waters, the general manager at Madame Tussauds in London, spoke about adding Zendaya to their waxwork line-up: 'Zendaya just exudes cool. Not only that, she uses her celebrity status to join conversations, thoughtfully, on important social issues. She is unapologetically herself – and we, along with her fans, love that about her.'
He also spoke about having the real-life Zendaya close-by in London: ‘With rumours circulating that Zendaya is soon to become a Londoner herself, the timing to pay homage to her at Madame Tussauds London could not be better.
‘We know her fans will be lining up for the chance to ‘meet’ their idol when Zendaya’s figure arrives in our Awards Party zone.’
Many fans expressed that the wax figure did not look like the Hollywood actress at all, while some people thought it did resemble the star.
