Elliott’s presence at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards is recreated in the new figurine. The tracksuit and Versace shoes were gifts from the four-time Grammy winner for the sculpture.
“I can hardly contain my excitement as I introduce my very own wax replica to Madame Tussauds Las Vegas.” “This is a dream come true, and it’s an honour for the Iconology album to be a part of it,” adds Missy Elliott.
Elliott’s distinctive gold earrings and necklace are also seen on the figurine. Twenty studio artists from Madame Tussaud’s London location worked on the Virginia native for close to 200 measurements and photos over the course of six months.
Gabriel Hewitt, the General Manager of Madame Tussauds Las Vegas, says, “Missy Elliott’s new wax figure and interactive experience give her fans around the world an exciting way to connect with her like never before.”

“Together with her, we’ve developed an experience that captures her dynamism, charm, and ground-breaking entertainment approach,” Hewitt says.
In addition, Elliott picked the best entries to be shown in the interactive exhibit at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas.
Sista, an R&B female combo, is where Missy Elliott got her start in the music industry. Later, she started penning tunes for artists like Jodeci, SWV, 702, and Aaliyah.
Additionally, Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Destiny’s Child, Mary J. Blige, Monica, Ciara, Keyshia Cole, and other artists had songs written by Missy Elliott.
