Taylor Swift has had one busy week.
Along with her new album, “Speak Now,” dropping on Monday, the country/pop singer has become officially immortalized with the likes of President Obama, Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela.
Madame Tussauds in New York released a wax figure of Swift on Wednesday, which, according to their website, took four months to create.
The 20-year-old superstar’s guitar was customized with Swarovski crystals. Taylor unveiled her likeness wearing a silver dress by Jenny Packham to match the one worn by her wax figure, which she donated to the museum. And while the dresses may be the same, that’s about it.
Most of the time with Madame Tussauds, it takes a second to determine which figure is lifeless inside. (Anyone seen Rihanna’s or Britney Spears’s figures?) But this is not the case for Swift, whose likeness resembles a my-size Barbie.
What do you think – does it look anything like Taylor?
they did the hair COMPLETELY WRONG!!! eye make up too, taylor always has the "cat-eye" eyeliner... not on the wax figure. that woman did a terrible job with the eyes and hair
it looks just lyke her lol
As far as what the question actually asked, no I don't think they did a very good job on this wax figure however; I do agree that it's the hair & makeup. I think the facial features & structure are pretty darn close. Now, as far as Taylor, I like her. I think she's a GREAT role model for young girls, like my 9 year old daughter (who absolutely LOVES her), and she has enjoyable music. People need to remember that she is still young & she sings about things she knows. Most people know that an artist is going to sound different live than they do on CD... it's called studio effects & voice enhancements. To keep it simple, if u don't like her, don't listen. And don't go into the comments section of an article that is about her. If you are bitter & jealous, no one else really wants to hear about it...
i think the wax figure looks hotter tahn she does lol
It would be even cooler if she met Wax Tailor: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wax_Tailor
I wish she would figure out something else to do with her hair. It's the same every time I see her..
I think it looks like a Victoria Secret model. idk it reminds me of some other celeb other then taylor thats for sure.
not even close – eyes are totally wrong. The rest is probably pretty close, except for the makeup, but make up isn't the problem with the eyes.
I don't think it looks like her at all.
She can't sing live; needs a lot of help to sound good. She is overated and over exposed. Time to go.
I am very disappointed! Madame Tussauds is know for their excellent worksmanship, but someone dropped the ball on this one! While facially it's a decent replica, the hair is nothing like the real Taylor Swift. Very disappointing.
I have to admit I'm not a Taylor fan but I had to check this out because wax museums fascinate me and this one is very disappointing. If I saw the figure without Taylor next to it I wouldn't know who it was. However I think the figure is much prettier. Maybe the artist was trying to send a message to Taylor that she should style herself more like the figure.
The only part of her face that actually even looks like her, is her nose and lips. Her eyes and hair don't match at all. It's a poor replica!
What a disappointing replica. It looks like any generic mannequin you'd see at a typical department store. I like Taylor's songwriting and glad there is a young singer who I can actually recommend to my young daughter.
wow! leave her alone, haha... look what this world has come to!
My wife met her at Bobby's Dairy Dip in Nashville recently and talked with her for a while. She was getting ice cream with her mom. She's a kid with a good heart, a strong work ethic, and a good heart. Her parents are hard working middle class people, all of them with a dream that resulted with some success. Have a nice day.

This is about as bad as the Kim Khardashian wax figure. Taylor's hair isn't that light, and she almost always wears that bright red lipstick. and why are the wax figures arms so white???
looks like Jenna Jamison and taylor swift.................
Should have done the hair on the doll like her normal retro-do. It really makes her unique and looks very good on her.
As would I!!! LOL
They got one thing right, the wax figure can't close it's mouth over those horse teeth either.
She's so freakin hot, call me!
I've yet to see a wax figure that looks like the celebrity they are supposed to be.
The wax one looks exactly like Barbie.
Its a crazy mixed up world i'm dingE so nothing matters n the worst isn't over this country just throws tax payer money away taylorswift a hardworrker we all need to learn how gifted you r.
Worst figure by MT's that I've seen. They really missed the mark.
No talent hack eh? lol silly kids her daddy cant force people to buy records...and she sell lots of them. haters
I had never heard taylor or katy perry before until I caught them both on SNL. My though was "My gosh! This is what the ruckus is all about?" They both have terrible voice and not much anything else. It made me think the members of the Grammy Academy must be a bunch of stupid adolescent boys for giving the immature girl that many awards. Pathetic.
Since when did winning a Grammy ever have anything to do with talent?
What's pathetic is that you were wondering what all the ruckus was about yet contributed your useless opinion to this article. That's why they stay afloat.
I agree with a someone's comment in that she's overrated. She was on Letterman the other night and she sounded terrible! She can't sing worth a darn. Anyway, what's up with the wax figure? Talk about a waste of time. lol
Well,........it IS a "Wax Museum". It is what they do, after all.
She really does sound horrible live. I've heard her sing live too many times for it to be 'just a fluke.' She sounds like cr*p every single time. Sorry.
Long and sleek like Taylor but the face has very little, if any, resemblance at all.
Sad but true and wasted months :( The artist could have done better.
Wow, I couldn't tell the difference when the lights are out and my eyes are closed! I'd rather see the real one anytime. ;-)
Looks nothing like her.. It doesn't do her justice.
Wow. That really doesn't look at all like her. Not even the hair, really. The real Taylor has a wider, heart-shaped face. This wax figure has been given a classic oval face shape.....not like Taylor's at all.
she's so much prettier in real life, the wax figure is a little off.
regardless, i love this girl... adorable, talented, funny, sweet and beautiful!
I'd give Taylor a hug job.
I agree kirsten, i love taylors music, some of its alittle young for me, but her song remind me of my teen years. Her parents should be proud of her, shes a beautiful person inside and out, God bless you taylor!!
she's ugly and looks like a rat
Your team blows.
Being from Oklahoma you'd know about women who look like rats.
looks nothing like her they need a redo
Why do people think she's a "no-talent hack", but then feel the need to comment on a news story ABOUT HER? If you think she's so "unimportant" then DON'T even read the story! Obviously you must care just a little, even if you care enough to dislike her, otherwise you wouldn't bother. And FYI her father doesn't work in the "biz". Her family is just regular people. She worked HARD to get where she is now, and she deserves it. Next time read up on some information before you go and judge people based on what you THINK you know.
Good one. Very hot.
This was a miss.
There's people dying in Mexico and the best they could do is a wax dummy? Really? Leave it to showbiz to report what's really important...
Hey Monie, why are you reading this article while gang-bangers are killing themselves in Mexico!?!
But this is the showbiz section of CNN. Why would they report on that here? You realize CNN has more than one writing team?
Are you really that stupid? Seriously?
Why don't you go to Mexico and do something about it if that is important for you?
I'm sure the wax version has as much talent as her. Might as well give the wax dummie the Grammys.
The latest marketing push for the music industry. Glad they're making a buck off of her. Not my dollar .I'm sure it helps that her father is a big name in the music Biz. Spoiled little rich kid gets what she wants from her daddy. No Talent Hack.
it's not her dad, it's her mom. And that makes her different from everyone else in showbiz, how?
it looks NOTHING like her. it might be the worst wax statue i've ever seen.
the hair isn't quite right
Kanye was right. Lol. Taylor Swift needs a swift kick in the azz off stage.
The eyes are close, but the coloring, esp of the hair and lips, makes it so fake.
i think its the hair and make up
if taylor had done her hair and makeup to match the wax figure there wouldnt be a difference – if you look at the features it is her
The red lipstick is a dead giveaway. They should have put it on the wax figure. She looks horrid with that bright red lipstick, but it seems like she's always wearing it.
But Amy, just think of the lovely "ring" it leaves.
I think the hair and color of the skin that throws it off. They did almost a Jessica Simpson hair to it and very pail look. Definitally there worst wax figure. She deserves a new one.
I guess. I think she's quite overrated.
HAHAHA VERY FUNNY
ID MELT THAT ALL NIGHT LONG
Now THAT'S a fetish!
You're quite the charmer.
