Adele is a curvy gal, and is sometimes criticized (okay, only by Karl Lagerfield) about her weight. Maybe that’s why Madame Tussauds decided to help the British crooner drop some weight when they cast her in wax.
Adele’s Madame Tussauds wax model definitely qualifies as an honor for the “Someone Like You” singer, with most media publications praising the likeness after it was unveiled Wednesday.
But a few have pointed out that the wax model seems to be quite a bit slimmer than the 25-year-old is in real life.
Madame Tussauds is known for their hyper-realistic replicas of famous pop culture figures (though some are a little bit more ‘uncanny valley‘ than others), and the Adele statue nails it. At least in the face.
MSN Now noticed that the body is another story. The wax model has noticeably slimmer calves and a slimmer waist.
So was it intentional? In the video that documented the process of building the Adele model, Alex Garnett, figure production coordinator and coloring artist at Madame Tussauds, stressed that all of Adele’s measurements are accurately reflected in the statue.
In any case, Adele’s Madame Tussauds statue captures a thoughtful moment from her 2012 Grammy performance, where she took home six awards. It will go on to join models of Beyoncé, Rihanna and Amy Winehouse.
Adele’s Grammy’s appearance, during which she rocked her Bond theme wearing a lacy black dress, silver nails and 60s-era hair, has been called iconic by some.
