Fans have shared their thoughts on the new Madame Tussauds waxwork of Taylor Swift at the Dubai museum.
Madame Tussauds Dubai had added a new “Mastermind” to its gallery, revealing a new model of Swift yesterday (November 6) that nods to the ‘Folklore‘ album era.
The handcrafted statue is of Swift sporting the kind of low, chignon bun featured in some of her ‘Folklore’ music videos including ‘Cardigan‘. The wax figure, holding an acoustic guitar, is dressed in a red sequinned turtleneck top tucked into a pair of high-waisted khaki pants.
Fans had mixed feelings about the new waxwork. While many pointed out that it’s an improvement on previous iterations at other waxwork museums, it was still largely agreed that it doesn’t quite nail Swift’s resemblance.
One person on social media wrote: “Why is it so difficult to get Taylor’s wax figures to actually look like her? I mean this one’s not bad compared to others but still.”

Another said: “I’m tired of these wax figures, but this one is at least better than usual.”

However, some weren’t impressed at all. “Haven’t @TussaudsUSA seen what Taylor Swift looks like or are they making her wax figures after looking at that “it’s just Ashley” girl?!”.

“Somebody stop please them from making wax figures,” wrote another person.
