First Anniversary of Whitney Houston’s Death Marked With a Collection of Wax Figures [PHOTOS]
To mark the one-year anniversary of her passing, the late Whitney Houston joined the pantheon of stars immortalized in wax with not one but four wax versions of herself from different stages of her career.
Madame Tussaud’s, where creepy versions of wax celebrities are made to take amusing pictures with tourists, unveiled the pieces in New York yesterday (Feb. 7).
The figures will be sent to various locations across the country.
The first one, which features Whitney in her Super Bowl track suit outfit, will be sent off to Washington, D.C., while New York will receive a recreation of Houston on the cover of her 2009 album, ‘I Look to You.’ Meanwhile, a likeness of Whitney in her famous costume from ‘The Bodyguard’ will reside in Hollywood, and Las Vegas gets the statue of her iconic look from the ’80s video ‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody.’
Whitney passed away on Feb. 11 of last year. Her mother Cissy has commemorated the event with a book about the life of her daughter.
