Lady Gaga’s Stunning New Wax Figure Immortalizes Her 2019 Oscars Look

Hollywood is going crazy for Gaga.

Lady Gaga has a new wax figure that was unveiled at Madame Tussauds Hollywood on Friday.

The lifelike figure replicates the iconic ensemble the Oscar, Grammy and Golden Globe winner wore to the 2019 Academy Awards, where she won Best Original Song for “Shallow” from “A Star Is Born.”

Reviving Alexander McQueen’s regal black gown and matching black gloves she wore on the red carpet, Gaga’s wax doppelgänger is accessorized with a simulated $30 million Tiffany diamond necklace with a 128 yellow diamond pendant, 54 carats.

The New York native was only the third woman to wear the necklace, after socialite Mrs. Mary Whitehouse and Audrey Hepburn, according to Fashion. The bauble became the most expensive piece of jewelry ever worn at the Oscars. Beyoncé later wore the necklace for a 2021 ad campaign for Tiffany & Co.

But Gaga’s detailed wax rendering doesn’t stop at jewelry and designer duds. All of Gaga’s tattoos on her upper back and arms have also been recreated.

“It made more sense that her Hollywood figure be inspired by the night she was nominated for Best Actress and took home the award for Best Original Song,” Madame Tussauds Hollywood general manager Tom Middleton said in a statement. “To top it off, her figure will be photographed at the famous Roosevelt Hotel, site of the first Academy Awards.”

Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, is also up for an Academy Award this year. “Hold My Hand” from “Top Gun: Maverick,” which she sang and co-wrote, is up for Best Original Song.
