London: Rihanna has been honoured with her own wax statue at Madame Tussauds museum in Washington DC.

The 22-year-old `Rude Boy` hitmaker is now sporting red hair but her wax incarnation copies her previous avatar, with a blonde quiff, reported Sun online.

Artists studied hundreds of photographs and video footage to capture the singer`s look.

Rihanna donated the figure`s outfit, which includes a black lace corset, black fitted jacket, black skinny pants and black silk heels.

The figure will be part of the museum`s Glamour Room, where guests can take photographs with the figure.
