Madame Tussauds, that well known wax museum headquartered in London, has come to be known for its incredible celebrity wax works and fascinating crafstmanship, upping the ante with a scorching new Rihanna statue, unveiled recently.

While Indian stars have also been immortalised with varying degrees of success, it's the Hollywood A-listers who steal the show with their charismatic presence and, in some cases, a sense of humour that's unique to them.

Here, we look at some of the most fascinating celebrity sightings at Tussauds.

Dressed in her worldwide hit and Grammy winning song Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It) outfit, the wax figure bears an uncanny resemblance with the real deal.
