The worst-looking wax sculptures at Madame Tussauds in NYC

Written by

We dare not disrespect Queen Bey, but the recent kerfuffle over her meltable doppelgänger (which has since been altered) got us thinking. Who else is severely misrepresented at Madame Tussauds New York

The quirky museum is a bit of a tourist trap for visitors who want to take a photo with a celebrity but don’t actually want to stake out Sarah Jessica Parker’s West Village apartment for 14 hours (which is fair). Though there are admittedly several realistic renderings found within, over the years there have been some that would be better off melted down into candles. And we know we’re not the first ones to joke that the real Kim Kardashian looks just as plastic as her wax figure, but it’s still funny because it’s true.
