Real Celebrities vs Wax Models: Can you tell?
Let’s play a game of celebrity spot the difference..
Madame Tussauds is a massive tourist attraction with 20 museums across America, Europe, Asia and Australia. Known for their scarily realistic waxwork models, Madame Tussauds have plenty of replicas of our favourite music stars to go around. From Pharrell to Lorde, they’ve got them all…But can you tell which ones are fake and who’s the real deal?
Ah, T-Swizzle. After two chart topping number 1 albums in the UK, who hasn’t heard of this American sweetheart? Taylor has her own waxwork model in the London Madame Tussauds based on the successful video for her hit single Shake it off. Can you tell which is the slightly waxier Taylor? It’s a tough one, but the real Taylor is on the left. The resemblance is almost creepy though, isn’t it?
After releasing a chart topping hit for the bond movie Skyfall back in 2012, we think the least Adele deserved was her own waxwork model. Likewise to our darling Taylor, Adele can also be found looking her waxiest in the London Madame Tussauds attraction. So, which Adele is the real deal? As you may have guessed from the frozen facial expression on the left, the real Adele is on the right, looking glam as always.
Oh look, it’s our favourite curly Auzzie. Lorde’s waxwork was revealed at the Los Angeles Madame Tussauds, many miles away from Taylor and Adele. Arguably our most life-like waxwork so far, the sculptors at MT LA really have done us proud. You might have already sussed it out from the red Madame Tussauds background in the picture on the left, but the real Lorde is indeed on the right. If I didn’t know better, I’d think they’d cloned her!
California girls are unforgettable, with Katy being no exception! Katy’s wax twin was revealed in Madame Tussauds in Berlin, wearing the same outfit as she wore to her Part of Me film premiere back in 2012. The real Katie, of course, is on the left. But that’s not to say I still wouldn’t be easily fooled by the one on the right..
He’s bringing sexy back (in wax form). Looking smart and now slightly outdated, in his white suit and black tie, there’s more than one talented Timberlake to go around now! The JT waxwork was displayed in the London Madame Tussauds in 2007, after the release of his hit Sexyback the year before. Before I spoil it, can you decide which Justin is authentic? It is, of course, the one on the right. Ah Justin.
Just look at it! Surely nobody could replicate a hat that unique? Pharrell seems to be everywhere. Not only does he write and release his own music, but he’s also featured in songs with Jay-z, Snoop Dogg, Britney Spears, Pitbull, Justin Timberlake and many more. Not to forget, he’s also an award winning music producer. Pharrell’s waxy self can be found in the Madame Tussauds attraction in The Big Apple, New York. However, the one on the right is less likely to be waiting for you when you get there, if you know what I’m saying..
They tried to make her go to rehab and she said no, no, no. Although we sadly lost the late Amy Winehouse in July 2011, Amy’s waxwork figure was on display at the London Madame Tussauds. The figure is seen wearing her bright yellow dress, teamed convincingly with her signature hair and thick, black winged eyeliner. Which picture is the real Amy? The one on the right. I think. These sculptors really are good at what they do.
