'They've even got my chin right': Adele gives her Madame Tussauds waxwork seal of approval
Wednesday 03 July 2013
"Skyfall" singer Adele has been immortalised by sculptors at London's Madame Tussauds
The Oscar-winning singer declared herself pleased with the likeness, which is dressed in a black gown, to replicate her look for last year's Grammy Awards.
She said: "They've even got my chin right."
She joins stars such as Beyonce, Rihanna, Amy Winehouse and Britney Spears at Tussauds. A replica of the singer is also being displayed at the Amsterdam branch.
Adele was not present at today's launch but she has already had a private view of the model and said: "That's scary! It's amazing - I feel a bit emotional."
Tussauds spokeswoman Nicole Fenner said: "She is one of the most influential and acclaimed British female artists ever and looks right at home alongside our other pop greats."
Adele, who became a mother in October, was included in the Queen's Birthday Honours list last month when she was recognised with an MBE.
